Macromedia Flash-flip page technology allows you to create dynamic Web-based brochures. The technology takes each page of your standard brochure file, converts it to an animated file and then combines the pages to make a flipping brochure. When customers visit your online brochure they can load it within a browser screen, flip through pages and print the document if they wish.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Use FlippingBook Publisher to create your flip brochure. This is a Windows-based desktop application that you can purchase and download to your computer. (You must have converted your brochure to a PDF to use this program.) Add the PDF file to the program as a new project and click "Publish" to create a flipping version of the brochure. The application provides you with an HTML file. Your customer can print the brochure by clicking "Print Pages" from the menu at the bottom of his screen.

  2. 2

    Create a flip brochure using FlipCity. This Web-based service -- compatible with multiple operating systems -- requires you to create an account and pay for each conversion. The service hosts your flip brochure on its own server. Upload your PDF to the online tool and receive a link to your brochure immediately. You can try the tool for free for a short period and then pay for each converted brochure thereafter. The fee includes one year of hosting, then you must pay a renewal fee each year to continue the hosting arrangement for your flip brochure.

  3. 3

    Convert your standard brochure to a flip version with Fresh Flash Catalog, a multi-platform, standalone desktop application. After downloading the premium software, click "New Project" to start building your flip brochure from scratch. You can add pictures, insert objects and type text directly into the product. The software allows you to add links, sound and video as well. You also can convert a PDF into a Flash flip-book.
