Design A Pop-Up Book

PrintNinja recommends keeping the following standards in mind when you design a pop-up book.

Pop-up books are a great tool to get young children interested in reading – with their special features and interactivity, they are almost a mix between a toy and a book. There are may different paper engineering techniques needed to create pop-ups: flaps, pull tabs, glue dots, valley folds, mountain folds and more. Even with the variety of pop-up formations these books share similar specifications in order to make the pop-ups pop: the pages within the book need to be thick enough to support the pop-up structure. This is why we recommend 10pt cover paper for the inside paper of your book.
