How to embed a PDF in a website

With FlippingBook, it’s easy to convert a PDF into an online flipbook. And then what? You can embed your PDF flipbook into a website! Just follow these four simple steps and you’ll be displaying your PDFs in HTML format in no time—with interactivity and your own branding to boot.

1

Upload your document to FlippingBook to convert PDF into HTML5 and create a digital flipbook. The conversion will take 1–2 minutes. When it’s finished, you can embed the flipbook as it is, but we recommend customizing it first.

2

Move on to customization and create a recognizable, branded look for your interactive flipbook. A custom logo will lead people to your site, while videos and GIFs will keep your audience engaged from the very first page.

3

What’s next? Embedding your PDF in a web page! Simply insert a PDF embed code in your site. You can decide what your embedded PDF will look like on the page—a cover preview or an actual interactive publication.

4

If you want extra security, you can display your PDF in HTML format as a protected embed. It won’t work outside of your website, and no one will be able to take the embed code for your PDF and place it on their own web page.

Easy to use

Flipbook embeds are as simple to use as they are to create. Your readers can easily navigate through an embedded PDF file right on the page of your website with the help of an interactive table of contents, thumbnails, and advanced text search. Readers can also flip through your HTML PDF embed comfortably and enjoy videos, pop-up images, and GIFs you add on the pages of your document.

Easy navigation

Easy to update

Noticed a typo or an item that needs to be replaced in the flipbook you’ve already published and embedded? Don’t worry! You don’t need to change the PDF embed code every time you want to change something in your digital document. Just update the original PDF in your flipbook and the embedded version will be updated automatically as well.

Interactive

By converting and embedding PDFs in your web pages with FlippingBook, you can turn your static digital documents into eye-catching interactive elements of your site. Relevant videos and outbound links will entertain your readers and diversify your content thus working wonders for viewer engagement. GIFs and inline pictures can liven up even the most text-heavy page. And readers of an online catalog or, say, a real estate brochure will be able to see the items they’re interested in in detail via pop-up images.

Matching your brand

If you want to truly make your digital documents a part of your platform, our branding tools will come in handy. Make the color palette and the background of your embedded PDF match your brand colors. Achieve complete brand integrity with a clickable logo, a favicon, and a custom URL. This way, if anyone reads your catalog or ebook on your website, they’ll treat it as an extension of your brand—a PDF embed in HTML format that’s an integral part of your web page.

Embed examples

You can embed your PDF in HTML format by copying and pasting a PDF embed code in your website. And you can choose how to display your PDF in HTML: as a clickable cover or as a seamless flipbook embed right within the web page.

Great for marketing

FlippingBook is so much more than a simple PDF embed viewer. We have a lot of powerful marketing tools to help you promote your publications.

  • Track viewers, views, clicks, geolocation, and more to understand your audience and see how well your content performs.

  • Add a lead capture form to any page of your embedded flipbook to generate new leads and follow up with them.

  • Boost your SEO performance by making your flipbooks searchable on Google and other search engines.

Mobile-friendly Mobile-friendly

Mobile-friendly

Unlike regular cumbersome PDFs, embedded PDF flipbooks are mobile-friendly and can be viewed easily on any device. They always open fast, look awesome, and are easy to navigate both from a cell phone screen and your home PC. And embedding PDFs in web pages means you don’t need to download them first so your mobile data usage limit won’t suffer.

Secure on the web

When you use FlippingBook’s PDF viewer in HTML, you know that your content is well protected from unwanted sharing. For every flipbook you embed with FlippingBook, you can decide whether you want it to be shared via a link, downloaded, or printed. You can also restrict embedding to your domain which means no one can take your flipbook or the PDF embed code and display it anywhere else. So you’re always in control of the security of your PDF flipbook embeds.

Did you know, you can also creatively display flipbooks in…

WordPress

To embed your PDF in a website on WordPress, copy FlippingBook’s short PDF embed code, and follow our guide. Your PDFs posted as flipbook embeds will look so much smarter than plain links!

Squarespace

You can also embed PDFs in HTML flipbook format into your Squarespace website if you use the Squarespace Business plan or higher. Just copy the embed code for your PDF and insert it into the page as a new Code Content Block. Follow our guide for more detailed instructions.

Basically, if you use a CMS that allows you to add custom code blocks, you can easily embed flipbooks with our online software. If you have any questions, ask our support—we are happy to help!

SharePoint

Embedding PDFs in web pages hosted on SharePoint will require asking your website administrator for permission to embed from external domains. When it’s done, though, you can embed a flipbook into a SharePoint web page in just three simple steps: click the Plus icon to add a new web part, select the Embed Code option and then insert the PDF embed code of the flipbook you want to add. That’s all! For a more detailed guide through SharePoint embedding, read our blog article here.

Facebook

Facebook doesn’t support PDF embedding yet, however, sharing a link to an online flipbook already gives your document a more winning look than just a simple link to a PDF document. A link to your flipbook, inserted into a Facebook post, will automatically turn into a nice eye-catching preview of your digital publication—it’s almost as good as an actual PDF embed in HTML format. You can learn more about Facebook embedding from our article.

FlippingBook opens up a realm of possibilities with embedded videos to make robust and interactive materials. It has been a game-changer.
