If you are not a GS1 member contact us on 0800 10 23 56 to arrange a manual order and payment.

If you are a MediaLibrary user, and we take the photographs for you, they are automatically uploaded to the respective GS1 data asset management system for free. You and your customers can access them as required. Non-users of GS1 data asset management systems receive their images by email.

Please send products in suitable condition for photography. Extra editing to compensate for damaged or marked packaging may incur additional costs.
