What is an embedded PDF?

An embedded PDF is the technical term for attaching a PDF to your website. However, unlike a standard embedded PDF, with Issuu, your embedded PDF becomes a flippable and interactive experience. 

Once you’ve added your Embed code to whichever page on your website you would like, your visitors will be able to browse your publication without ever having to leave your site. 

While embedding a PDF used to be a highly technical skill requiring web development expertise, with Issuu, we make it easy for anyone to do with our Embed feature.

How to embed a PDF

Embed anywhere

Issuu’s Embed feature works with every major website builder: WordPress, Squarespace, Wix, etc. We take care of everything code-related. All you need to do is grab the code and go. You can embed a PDF to as many pages as you want. You might upload a PDF to your website’s homepage if you want it to be the first thing visitors see, or you could embed it on a product page if your publication is related to that product. We make it easy to embed anywhere and everywhere.

Embed FAQs

  • When you embed a PDF in a webpage, you make it easier for visitors to find and read. Your content is right there, front and center. In the case of an Issuu publication, features like flippable pages are available in the embedded PDF.

  • Nope! You used to need coding skills to embed things on your website. But those days are over thanks to Issuu. With tools like Issuu’s Embed feature, anyone who knows how to copy and paste can embed a PDF to a website in just a few clicks.

  • You can embed a PDF pretty much anywhere you want on your site. The process is the same for any page. Where you decide to put it depends on the content and what’s already on the page. If you want the PDF to be seen by more visitors, put it on your homepage so people landing on your site can see it. If the PDF’s content relates to a product or blog post, embed it in the product page or in the blog post. It’s entirely up to you.
