What Is It?

Issuu is a free service that allows users to upload PDF, Word, Excel, and Powerpoint files to create "paperless" online magazines. Page turning and zoom options are all built into the technology of Issuu and are automatically activated when the document is published. The online magazines you create can be embedded in blogs, wikis or websites. Printing sharing, embeding or downloading pages from your magazine is quick and easy.
