So what are PDF brochures? PDFs (Portable Document Format) are digital files, like a Word document. PDFs are designed to present and exchange documents reliably — independent of software, hardware or operating system. A PDF brochure is a brochure in the PDF format.
PDFs are the most common digital brochure format and have many advantages. They’re easy to send and share, and they also utilise the built-in features of PDF readers. Below we take a closer look at the advantages of PDF brochures.
What are the main benefits of PDF brochures?
Easy to send – You can send PDFs to people as an email attachment or provide a link to the file by using apps like WeTransfer or Dropbox.
Upload – You can upload PDFs to your website to provide a downloadable brochure or as a resource file on your server or intranet.
Add links – You can create links to other content within the PDF file or to external websites.
Navigation – You can build internal navigation to important information by using linked graphics and buttons.
Security – You can add different security levels and password protection to prevent access without authorisation or to prevent others from copying and editing.
Accessibility – You can create PDFs to meet a range of accessibility standards and make content more usable by people with disabilities.
Forms – You can create PDF forms that are easy to complete.
Digital – Digital brochures give you the ability to have as many pages as you like. They also give you the flexibility to update and edit as needed, avoiding any expensive reprint costs. Take a look at this article about digital brochures here.
