Andymation’s Starter Flipbook Kit is compact and includes everything you need to start making your own flipbooks. These are the essentials!
What is the first thing you need in a Starter Flipbook Kit? Paper of course! So, you’ll get two single packs of Andymation’s Premium Flipbook Paper, which is absolutely perfect for “onion skinning” and has excellent thickness for smooth flipping with minimal blur. My paper is pre-drilled and fits precisely on the Light Pad’s registration pegs.
Second, you need my Light Pad. What’s a Light Pad? I’m glad you asked! It’s one of the most helpful tools--it’s like a very small “light table” for tracing over your previous drawings. It allows you to see through to your previous drawings, make gradual changes, and keep your animation consistent from page to page. My Light Pad features two precise registration pegs, which make it super easy to keep your pages lined up while you draw. The pegs are optimally placed for easy page swapping. The Light Pad has two brightness settings, is powered by standard USB, and features warm white light, which is easier on your eyes. This is exactly what I use in all of my YouTube videos, and it’s the best light pad you can get for flip book making.
And finally, you need binding screws for when your flipbooks are finished and ready to show off. That’s my Starter Flipbook Kit--it’s everything you need to get started!
Instructions? This kit comes with a comprehensive instruction booklet that tells you how to use everything in the kit. It also has some basic animation instructions to help get you started. You can also refer to my YouTube channel or the Tutorial page on my website for more in-depth animation instruction.
