BookBildr is designed for desktop computers and is not intended for use on phones, tablets and Chromebooks.
With BookBildr, you can easily create illustrated books in four different formats: medium square, large square, landscape, and portrait. You can download the books you create as PDFs or order hard copies (available upon request).
BookBildr is an online tool that lets you create illustrated books and learning materials from scratch. You don’t need any design experience or software because BookBildr has everything you’ll need. You can choose different backgrounds, add illustrations, upload photos, edit images using our powerful filters and tools, and add text the way you like, in any language. All images on BookBildr are in public domain, which means they are OK for both personal and commercial use.
BookBildr works with all modern browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Edge) but we recommend Google Chrome. If you’re experiencing any problems with any other browser, try switching to Chrome. Apple Safari is not supported.
BookBildr for Education is for schools, teachers, students, and parents. More specifically, it’s for: – homeschooling parents who want to encourage their children’s writing skills – teachers who want to enhance their curriculum and increase student creativity and engagelemt – children who want to write their own books – clubs, language schools and other educational organizations – the list is endless, really!
Using BookBildr for Education
Yes, you can. Use the arrow icons to move your pages around. You can also zoom out to 25% and drag and drop page thumbnails around.
Yes, you can but we don’t recommend it because Word and similar programs add hidden formatting that can “break” your book. For the best result, paste your text from a simple text editor like Notepad and press Ctrl+Shift+V (Cmd+Shift+V on a Mac) when pasting.
Yes, absolutely! BookBildr uses Google Fonts, which means that there’s a font for practically any language. To find the right font for your language, go to https://fonts.google.com and use the “Languages” dropdown menu to find compatible fonts. You can then select the compatible font you like in the BookBildr Editor.
Plans & Billing
We use Stripe and PayPal to process payments, which means that BookBildr doesn’t store or have access to your payment details. For more information, please refer to Stripe’s and PayPal’s policies.
All BookBildr for Education plans are billed monthly on a recurring basis. There isn’t a contract and you can cancel any plan, anytime. Your recurring payments will stop starting from the next month. Please note that if you have a group membership plan, all the child members will lose access to BookBildr once your subscription cancellation takes effect.
Sorry, we don’t offer refunds because we have a short billing cycle (one month) and you can keep using BookBildr for the remaining period of your subscription. You can cancel your subscription anytime from the My Account page and you won’t be billed again.
We accept all major credit and debit cards, as well as PayPal.
Most likely, your username has a space in it. Please refrain from working on your book project, contact us and let us fix your username. Once the space is removed, saving and downloading will work.
Please contact us immediately and refrain from working on your book until you hear from us. We’ll attempt to restore the latest backup of your project.
To make BookBildr fast and efficient for all users, we automatically delete unused uploaded images that are older than 7 days. Don’t worry, we don’t delete any picture you use in a book, plus you can always upload the missing images again if you need them for your project.
All illustrations provided by BookBildr come from free stock websites. The illustrations are public domain and are free for commercial use. If you think that an illustration breaches copyright laws, please contact us via the contact form and report your concern.
Here’s an overview of how you can use BookBildr content.
- Commercial and noncommercial use across print and digital, except in the cases mentioned in “What’s not allowed”.
- Attribution is not required but very much appreciated. Something like “This book was made with BookBildr.com” would mean a lot to us.
What’s NOT allowed:
- Don’t sell unaltered copies of an image (e.g. don’t create a sheet with a single image from us and sell it as your own). This also applies to creating photo albums using the photos we provide and crediting yourself as the photographer. That’s not only dishonest but also illegal.
- Don’t use our content to portray identifiable people or brands in a bad light.
- Don’t use our content to create misleading associations with identifiable brands, products, and/or services.
The copyright is yours and BookBildr doesn’t retain any rights to user-made content. All the illustrations we offer are public domain, so you don’t have to worry about that either.
