With Publitas we focus on large and clean content.

Clean & responsive design

We’ve created a viewer that puts your publication center stage. We don’t want to ruin it with annoying buttons or other distractions and we aim to show your content as large as possible. As a result, we keep your readers engaged with your publication instead of its surroundings.

No related publications

We won't clutter your publication with other related publications. The focus of your readers will be on your content rather than on other publisher’s publications that might steal or offend your readers.

Ad free

We guarantee an ad free experience for your readers when browsing through your publications. We do not want to clutter your carefully crafted content with ads or confuse your readers with misleading popups.

What people have to say about our clutter-free approach

I uploaded a document for clients, and on Issuu it looked terrible, it was super small and hard to read. Very clunky. I was thrilled when I uploaded it to Publitas – it looks fantastic. So thanks!”

In my opinion Publitas had by far the most minimalist and clean design. This was useful in my case, as I work in a design related field and need pdfs to stand out on their own without all the visual pollution around them.”

I needed something to show off my brochure that was like issuu but just about my brochure and not other publications. I also prefer how yours looks! Way more intuitive and prettier!”

What people have to say about our loading speeds

The publication we uploaded loads a lot quicker (when viewed by our client) than a similar version in issuu.”

Real in-publication shopping
