Don't look anywhere else for printing!!

I can not recommend this company highly enough! I looked on various sites and they all seemed a bit complicated. I contacted Mixam explaining what I was after and spoke to 'Jo'. She immediately put me at ease, she answered all of my queries, and guided me on the type of paper available etc. As I was struggling to upload the book, she offered to do it all for me, I simply emailed a PDF Version of the book over to her and having chosen my paper/book size/design etc. she did the rest for me! I received my book bang on the date they advised (within 5 days) and the quality is absolutely superb. It really is very economical, I chose high quality paper, colour throughout, 40 pages on hardback and ordered 4 copies for £60 including delivery. I had quotes for the same thing for double this price and the websites were very complicated.

I would definitely recommend Mixam if you want to craft a book. The platform is so easy to use. Even for the difficult parts, they advised me during the whole process of creation. The actual outcome was more than amazing. Thank you.

I’m so impressed with the quality of my wedding books. I got 6 A4 hardback books printed full of my wedding photos. They were perfect! Such good value for money too. Production was also super quick. Thank you so much!
Printing of my family history books

My finished books turned up earlier this week on the promised day and I am really pleased with the result. This was my first experience of writing a book and getting the results published and I was sure something was going to go wrong along the way, but it didn't. I can't fault Mixam. They answered my daft questions up front very patiently. Their website was good and worked well when I submitted my work and the whole experience was very professional. The end result looks really great as well. i know this probably sounds like another of those paid for reviews, but I just felt the need to say a genuine thank you and am happy to recommend them. Sadly though, I find I'm rarely able to say that for many other companies today!

Great products. Booklets are great, hardback books just perfect. To my relief, staff at mixam were quick to compensate me for a delivery mistake by the courier. Great service.
Info for file setup

Hardcover book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
You can supply your files in a way that suits you - as single pages or spreads, individual files for each page, or as a single combined file.
Important - your cover
When it comes to cover artwork setup, hardcover books are slightly different to our other products.
Most covers are made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover. The cover for a hardcover book is only two pages - a front cover and a back cover.
Endpapers
The inside front and back cover pages cannot be printed on. These are called Endpapers.
On the order, these places will be locked. This is important as it may throw the page sequence out, putting left and right facing pages in the wrong order.
There is a choice of Endpapers - either solid white or black.
Bleed
The cover on hardback books overhangs the inner pages. To make the cover, we need a very large bleed area on the front, back and spine. We ask for 20mm on all sides. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Spine
The spine will also need a 20mm bleed at the top and bottom.
If you are uploading a cover spread, you do not need to supply a separate spine file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. However, we ask for an extra 5mm to be added to the front and back covers, placed either side of the spine depth in your design.
If you are uploading single pages. The spine should be supplied as a separate file. The spine depth is calculated and displayed in the shopping cart. If you do not upload a print file for your spine it will be left blank.
Quiet area
Within the cover page size we recommend a quiet area or margin of at least 8mm around the edge.
