My dad owns a restaurant in my hometown, and wanted to convert the menu from PDF to a free pdf flipbook (with a Flipbook Animation Software), while doing it well. I wanted to make potential viewers think they were actually holding an authentic looking menu as they viewed it online. Most major restaurant owners seek out professional help and spend thousands of dollars to market their products or create online catalogs. We wanted to do it on our own and without having to spend that much money.
But how do you go about creating an error free pdf flipbook? And what flipbook animation software/tool can do this without charging anything. I searched the web and found a lot of apps that looked average at best, and really weren’t what I was looking for. I realized that it was equally necessary to try new things and get creative with my work. Almost every type of tool I tried, such as Issuu or Joomag, from the web were only focused on how to make money selling packages. These companies were willing to offer a wide variety of services but came with a huge price. Then one day I stumbled upon a video that explained what Yumpu.com was all about.
Here’s the video that I’m referring to:
It essentially explained to me what Yumpu was, that I could upload a static PDF file and convert it to an e-paper for free. Now I have seen free apps, and naturally, I am a bit skeptical of them. But Yumpu was different. The look of it was chic and very approachable. Things could be color coordinated and styled according to how I personally wanted them.
I decided to sign up for free and have not regretted it. Yumpu.com has stupendous flipbook animation software that truly makes my menu look clear as day. I wanted something that could naturally be flipped, as if turning a page. PDF files really are no fun for that. And I wanted my menu to be approachable and welcoming, personally representing my dad’s fine restaurant. With Yumpu, the restaurant menu of mine went from a boring PDF file of my computer, to a sleek looking flipbook, (and I know how to make one!) with personal touches and an elegant look that was astonishing. And the best part other than the fact that it is free and and chic, is the amount of people it become available to.
How to create your first flip book step by step:
- Let’s start off by creating a PDF file. Should you already have one, skipt this step.
If you only have a Word Document or an Excel Sheet you can either save them as PDF, using the “Save as” function (https://support.office.com/en-gb/article/Save-as-PDF-443b9ec2-3b9a-431f-b6f7-672550a296b7) , or use an online PDF converter like this one: http://www.freepdfconvert.com/
- Now that you have your PDF file, go to Yumpu.com
- Drag your PDF in the upload box or choose it from your PC
- If you already have a Yumpu account log in, otherwise you can create a new one (don’t worry, its free!)
- Your PDF will get converted. You may have to wait a few minutes
- When the flipbook animation software has finished converting your free PDF flipbook, you can find it in the menu point “My Magazines”
- That’s it! You can find more help here!
