ADD YOUR LOGO
Adding your logo should be the first thing for you to consider when it comes to branding your publication. A logo is a key element that represent your company in the best possible way, so it is a good idea to make it the first thing your readers see when opening your flipbook.
Thus, how to add a logo to your flipbook?
Start with logging in to your Publuu account and finding the flipbook you want to add a logo to.
Then pass into the customization menu by clicking the CUSTOMIZE button.
Now focus on the left-hand panel, find the ADD LOGO tab, and click it.
After opening the tab, you’ll probably see the “powered by Publuu” logo which is added by default.
Click the minus icon to remove it and replace it with your own logo.
Then click the ADD LOGO button to run the dialog and upload the logotype from your hard drive. Remember that our system accepts only logos in .jpg or .png format.
To make your logo an active button that once clicked will transfer your readers straight into your website, just paste the link to your website in the input below. That’s it!
As soon as you finish the process of adding your logotype, click the SAVE button in the left-hand corner.
Now your logo will be shown in the center of your flipbook each time somebody opens it, as well as in the top right corner of the viewer.
CHANGE THE BACKGROUND
As a Publuu user, you have the chance to customize the background of your flipbook anytime.
In the control panel, go to your flipbook and click the CUSTOMIZE button to move to the customization menu.
Head over to the BACKGROUND tab available in the left panel. Press it to open.
Now you’ll see three options: color, theme, and image. Let’s discuss them one by one.
As soon as you click the COLOR icon, you’ll see the color palette. Now just pick the background color compatible with your brand.
You can choose from multiple ready-to-use themes prepared for any kind of content. Once you click the theme, it will be adjusted to your flipbook. You can try different themes before you choose the one that matches your company’s style.
Publuu makes it possible to add your own image as a background. Notice that the maximum file size is 5MB. To add your photo, click the ADD IMAGE button and upload an image from your computer.
TIP: Choose the background color, theme, or image that won’t distract the attention of the visitor, otherwise, it will be difficult for him to focus on your content. The best idea is to set a clear, simple background that highlights the assets of your flipbook, while not making it hard to read.
As soon as you are satisfied with the background you set, click the SAVE button in the top left corner.
Once you change the background of your flipbook in the customization menu, it will change simultaneously on every flipbook you shared or embedded.
A custom domain is a function that allows you to create a unique URL address to your flipbook containing your own subdomain instead of having Publuu domain in it.
GOOD TO KNOW: This function is available only for Optimum, Professional, and Premium subscribers. Basic Publuu users need to upgrade their plan to use it.
