Besides sharing your Flipsnack publications online, you might want to print them and share them physically with your readers. In what follows I will share some information about how to prepare your documents prior to printing them.
When it comes to creating your publication in Flipsnack, there are two ways of doing so:
1. Upload your PDF file in Flipsnack and then edit it
2. Create the design from scratch in Flipsnack's Design Studio.
Let’s take a look at both of these options.
Create a print-ready PDF file to upload in Flipsnack
The following guidelines will tell you how to prepare your PDF file so you can upload it in Flipsnack, to make it print-ready for your readers:
The PDF you upload must contain only single pages because pages exported as spreads will not be accepted.
The resolution of the file should be 300 DPI for the best results.
Create the file with a bleed of 0.125 inches and place the text at least 0.39 inches from the margin.
Important: Please take note that some colors on the printed version might differ slightly from the online version due to the physical composition of the paper.

The following tips will tell you how to make a print-ready publication in Flipsnack’s Design Studio:
Choose the proper page size before starting the design process.
Pay close attention to the margins, and make sure that there is enough space for printing. Keep a small distance between the text and the margins.
Upload high-quality images, as the images in the printed document, depending on the quality of the images you’ve uploaded in the Design Studio.
Important: We advise leaving at least 1 cm of free space alongside the borders of your page so to avoid important content being cut.
