What is the Flat-Plan software used for?

It is the most effective online flatplan tool available. It is designed for publications, especially magazines, but is also useful for smaller books and papers less than 1,000 pages. By using it, you can create a sheet which immediately displays your plan (articles, ads, titles, page numbers). If you want to instantly renumber pages or are fed up with clumsy file formats, forget about it! Flat-Plan will create your flatplan instead of you having to do all the work!

Why is creating a flatplan with the Flat-Plan easier?

At first glance you’ll see that Flat-plan is easier to use. Even on your first try you’ll be able to create a flatplan within a minute. It will eliminate hours of work and clumsy file formats.

Country flags

For Cuisine magazine, Flat-Plan has been a godsend. I have been using it for a few years now, but it is lately while our country has been in a massive lockdown (we are New Zealand-based) that it's been even more valuable. We are a small team working remotely, so being able to share updates on production, advert placement, pagination etc across the team all in one place is really easy and very helpful.

Flat Plan allows our team to plan each issue of VIPY magazine in advance, and change pages, ads and stories around as needed until we have a final page layout. Our team members are located all around the world, so Flat Plan works collaboratively and allows us to see issues planned from any geographic location.  Flat Plan is a key part of our print production.
