Flipsnack uses the freemium model, which means that you can use the tool with a free account, or with a paid subscription. Naturally, the free version is limited.
What can I do with a free account on Flipsnack?
You can create up to 3 flipbooks in your account, by uploading PDFs or by creating them from scratch in our integrated Design Studio. Yes, with a free account you design a brochure with up to 30 pages in Flipsnack.
Each one of your 3 flipbooks can have up to 30 pages. If your uploaded PDF had more than 30 pages, only the first 30 will be displayed.
You have to publish your flipbooks before you can share them.
With a free account, you can share the link of your flipbook on social media, email or chat.
Another option is to integrate the animated flipbook on your site or blog, by adding the embed code. A small watermark will be applied right next to the animated flipbook in your embedded flipbook player.
You can also download a GIF-preview of your flipbook for sharing on social platforms. If you made a design in Flipsnack and you want to download it, you need to use the JPG or PNG download option, because these are available for free.
This is, in a nutshell, the basics of what you can do with a free account. For businesses and organizations, we generally recommend a paid subscription, because they unlock a lot of valuable features, in terms of interactivity, privacy settings, statistics, branding, collaboration. They also allow you to create more flipbooks, with more pages. Check our pricing page to see all details.
