These FlipBooks would appear just as they would in print -- with real "flipping" pages plus much more.

"We searched for an easy and economical solution to creating an electronic flip catalog for a new product line to post on our website. FlipCity website was easy to use and allowed us to sample a flip catalog before we purchased it," said one of FlipCity's repeat customer, Chris Rosenberg, National Sales & Marketing Manager of Unique Truck Accessories.

Unique Truck Accessories has published 3 online catalogs at FlipCity and is planning to add more, as explained by Chris, "We liked the service so much that we produced all three of our catalogs in the FlipBook format and plan to update them often and add more as well. This is an economical way for us to keep our customers up-to-date with our latest products. Our customers love these catalogs and comment on them often."

Thanks to E-Book Systems FlipCity web service, Unique Truck Accessories' customers can now go to and browse through the FlipBook version of the Product Guides. In a matter of moments, readers can view the Product Guides just as they would appear in print -- with real "flipping" pages plus much more.

FlipCity is a web service created by E-Book Systems to help users to convert PDF documents into FlipBooks. Users just need to sign up for a free account at FlipCity, upload their PDF document and it will be converted instantaneously into a FlipBook which appears as a 3-D page-flipping virtual book on the computer. There is a 7-day free trial period for every converted PDF. If the user is satisfied with the created FlipBook, he can pay anytime within the trial period to keep the FlipBook. With the download feature, users can also choose to download the entire FlipBook from FlipCity upon purchase and host it elsewhere or put it on CDs for offline distribution.

Once the FlipBook is created, it can be easily viewed by E-Book Systems' latest digital publication reader FlipViewer(R) Xpress. This is a Flash-based viewer which can run on multiple operating system platforms including Windows and Mac. As an ideal way for reading a publication online, FlipViewer(R) Xpress features an intuitive page-flipping interface that lets readers "turn" pages, rapidly skim content and go directly to a certain page number -- just like reading or browsing through a printed publication. While users are reading the current page, the next few pages are streaming into the PC, so every page is only a click away. Readers can immediately visit the publishers' or advertisers' websites by clicking on links on pages and advertisements inside the digital publication. To top it all, readers can also search for text, add bookmarks, and even notes.

FlipCity enables users to quickly create page-flipping digital publications out of their PDFs and with digital publications, users can reach out to more readers via the Internet globally in addition to saving printing cost.
