I just completed a website project and would like to share my experience.
The goal was to convert a PDF into a flash flip book with page flipping animation with a WordPress website.
Scouring the web I discovered numerous flipping book software packages in the range of $300-$2000. I did some testing with two or three of them before I found the solution I was looking for.
I settled on a PDF flip book software called Flip Builder.
Originally I saw their website design and quickly dismissed them as being a legitimate company. Not that I found anything particularly wrong with them, but the site just looked very generic and has a address listed in Hong Kong.
What brought me back to them was digging into the source code of a flip book I found online and seeing it was made with Flip Builder.
Another criteria that Flip Builder met was working on a Mac computer. Which it does along with Windows.
The license I ended up buying was the Flip Pro Professional for $299 (comes with a 30 day money back guarantee).
There is an entire laundry list of features and capabilities that I encourage you to checkout if you're in the market for an animated flip book.
I followed their instructions on how to make a flip book using WordPress. And came away completely impressed! Within about 2-3 hours I had a working project online.
It was a pretty straight forward process. You create the flipping book in their software. Then, you save and export the file as a plugin.
In the WordPress admin section you add the file you saved as a plugin. Which then shows up in the left menu. Along with giving you a short code. The short code is what you will paste on any page you would like the flip book to display on.

I feel like this software can create an amazing online catalog to share with potential and existing clients.
If you would rather have me create a flip book for your WordPress site. And save yourself the 5 hours or so of time, and $299 in cost please contact me.
I'm currently offering to create animated flip books for WordPress for a cost of $2 per page.
