Digital Booklets are electronic versions of printed material formatted in the PDF (portable document format) file type. PDFs allow the conversion of a variety of file formats that will keep the original font style, colour and graphics, regardless of the software used to create it. CD booklets are popular in music as artists transform their paper CD booklets into digital booklets.
