How to share your flipbook by email in Flipsnack

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 noreply@flipsnack.com, so keep that in mind. Read about email sharing and how you can use a custom email provider with Flipsnack.

Share the direct link or the full-view link

Copy the direct link and share it as you wish. The page you will share contains our site menu, your flipbook and other publications, and our site’s footer. Our Enterprise subscribers have some customization options that allow them to remove our branding from the page and add their own links.

Here's an example of a standard direct link for a paid account.

The full-view URL is an elegant and clean way of sharing your flipbook. It opens your flipbook in the browser without displaying a menu, related publications, or a footer, providing a better browsing experience for users. This link is only available for our premium members.

Here's an example of how a Flipsnack full-screen 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.
