    Default Offline flip book s/w

    Hi,

    I would like to create an offline PDF flip book of our products and then put it onto a USB drive which I will then engrave and give out at trade shows and to our rep when he visits potential clients.

    So can anyone recommend some free/cheapish s/w that will do the job? I have done the old google search but would prefer some recommendations if poss.

    Thanks in advance,

    Graham
    Cheers,

    Graham

    Do you have an example of the type of flipbook?

    We have a template that brings together all the variants from a BP export into a downloadable catalogue that we send out in PDF like below:
    loxta.link/FullCatalogue

    I don't think this is exactly what you are looking for, but there maybe some tweaks that can be done to the code.

    Hi,

    I can't voucher for this personally as I've never used it before, but as an end user I did get an ebrochure sent from a supplier the other day that was made from it and I thought it looked impressive and worked well: www.anyflip.com

    Having just checked it does offer offline too, so maybe worth a look.

    More fiddly than difficult. Getting the variants listed in the table was a bit of a pain, but it does work and straight from an export file from BP. We also have a version with RRP's next to each variant so you can add other information to each line.

    The cover pages and end page are the PDF merged to the main document.

    Publitas only works online, however the pdf output that we get still looks good to send to customers.

    More than happy to share the mail merge template if it is of any use.

    That looks really good Shaun. I'd be interested in the mail merge template if possible. We use Publitas at the moment, but only to upload PDFs that we have created. Something that works with products would be really useful.

    Thanks
