Mixam provide a fast, efficient service and there is good customer support. The pricing is fair and there were some very good things about the finished product. I had a quality issue with one item and it was promptly replaced, although I also had the option of a refund. For the long haul, I would have more samples printed before producing the final file for printing and selecting paper weights and finishes, because my hand-drawn artwork can be difficult to reproduce in print. This is more an issue of trying to get stuff printed up remotely.
Great product at a great price!

It’s been a great experience getting my book published with Mixam. The sample packs made sure we got the paper for the job and when I had a couple of issues with cover they were very speedy in helping me out. The product is excellent quality and very speedy delivery. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone looking for quality printing at a great price and I will definitely use them again for my next printing!

Absolutely first rate service!! Mixam were helpful right from the offset. We developed our own design and uploaded the artwork very easily. You could then check the artwork was correct with the virtual app, to make sure all the pages read how you'd like them to read. So simple. Also, and possibly the most important when dealing with parents of leavers, the cost was so competitive to everyone else and they easily beat any price I could find. Thanks again for a great service.

I initially found the uploading PDFS into software slightly difficult, but once I figured out the knack I got it. (Upload your front cover, then the book contents, then the back cover and spine). I got a call about 15 minutes later saying there were a few errors, did I have time to sit down and deal with it now? I didn't at the time, but Nikki was super helpful and gave them to me to write down and sort in my own time. Once I got the time, I rang Nikki back and she could double check them on her end, which was super kind! I am SO glad that the Mixam team were there to double check these errors before it went off to print!!! Nikki was so kind about my work and advised on the paper choice. The mixam team offered to send two print copies over; one silk paper and the other uncoated so that I could see which would suit the photos the best. When creating a photo book, the emphasis is solely on the quality of the images. I could not be any happier with the customer service that I have received!!! Will come back to Mixam again. Thankyou so much Mixam team. Looking forward to receiving my books.

Absolutely perfect. I was a bit nervous about the layout and other things and they were so incredibly patient and helpful. The book itself turned out exactly how it was online, and is of really great quality. Very much recommend.
Highly recommend

I ordered 2 copies of a book for my university final project submission. I was dubious as I'd not heard of anyone ordering from this company, but I was pleasantly surprised. Communication was clear and fast and they were happy to help me with problems I encountered. Delivery was the day predicted in the calculator. Overall, good value for money and I would definitely use them again. Highly recommend.
Great service

Great service, quality was amazing and arrived on the right day. Site was easy to use and staff were helpful, would recommend to other students as the price wasn’t bad to get high quality books made, especially hardback.
Superb support and good after sales

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.
