Find out how you can share your flipbooks to get more exposure.
Whether you want to share the link to your flipbook or integrate it into your website, there are different ways to do so.
Table of contents:
Sharing options start in the main dashboard
While in the Main dashboard, locate the flipbook you want to share, and click the Share button.
Note: Keep in mind that the sharing button will be available only if the flipbook is published. Otherwise, the Publish button will appear instead.
A popup will appear when clicking the share button, displaying the different sharing options you can choose from.
Share from a specific page
If you want your readers to open your flipbook from a specific page, you can do so. While in the Main dashboard, hover the mouse over the cover of any published flipbook, and click on it. This will open the flipbook in the player. Click the sharing icon, check the box From current page, then click on Copy link. Share the link with your readers and the flipbook will open from the desired page.
Social media sharing
Sharing options include Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. When you click on one of these social media buttons, it will create a social media post with the flipbook's URL and flipbook preview based on the type of preview supported on the selected social channel.

Share via email
The Send email option allows you to customize a standard email template. You will have different customization options based on your subscription.
The Enterprise plan lets you personalize the colors, subject line, title, description, button label, accent color (button and text), logo, and email footer.
Note: When sending a flipbook via email, the flipbook will not be animated. The email will contain the flipbook’s cover, and the recipient must click the link to access the flipbook.
When customizing the email, you can see how it would look in both desktop and mobile versions.
After customizing the email, you can copy the email code and import it as an HTML email template in your Email service provider tool. You can find the code at the bottom of the page.
Alternatively, you can send the email directly through Flipsnack. In that case, the email will be sent from firstname.lastname@example.org, so keep that in mind. Read about email sharing and how you can use a custom email provider with Flipsnack.
Share the full-view link
The full-view URL is a clean and elegant way to share your flipbook, without any distracting menus, related publications, or footers. It offers a better browsing experience for users.
To get a full-view link:
- Go to the main dashboard.
- Select your desired flipbook.
- Click the Share button on the left side of the flipbook.
- Copy the link from the popup that appears.
Here's an example of how a flipbook full-view link looks.

Embed (add the flipbook player on websites)
In addition to the previously mentioned sharing options, you can also embed the flipbook on a site or blog pretty easily.
Copy the embed code from the Embed tab and paste it on any website that supports embeddable content. You can choose the embed size, if you want to make the embed responsive or not, and the page you want your flipbook to start from.
Important: If you publish your flipbook as private, you won’t be able to embed it.
Generate a QR code
You can also generate a QR code for your flipbooks. To do so, while in the Main dashboard, look for your published flipbooks and click on Details. Click on Download QR Code, add a custom logo if you wish, and download it as JPG, PNG, or SVG. Scanning the QR code from a mobile device will open the flipbook.
In the main dashboard, go to the desired flipbook, select Download, and a different popup will open with various format options: PDF for web, PDF for print, HTML5, JPEG, PNG, MP4 preview, and GIF preview. We have a detailed article about all of the download options you can choose from.
