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!

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!

The team were very helpful in advising how to use the site initially and then when I had a slight problem with my order were in contact very quickly. The final product (hard backed book) was excellent. I would definitely recommend.
Amazing, wonderful, special team!

Thank you so much for helping to bring my sisters book to life in such a short time and in such a beautiful way. Losing loved one is terrible, however publishing her book and being able to give to family and friends keeps her with us and keeps her thoughts and dreams alive.
EXCELLENT! AWESOME! PERFECT!

First time user of Mixam and I cannot fault anything! Customer service and professional advice, second to none, particularly for a novice like me! Nothing was too much trouble. The site is easy to use and the preview section makes it easy to amend errors prior to print. The quality of the print and paper used is excellent. The order arrived four days early and perfectly packaged. I would definately recommend and wouldn't hesitate to use again. Overall FANTASTIC!

I took advantage of a trip to the UK to print my book in a small run. My previous printer had made a hash of it. As I had a limited time un the UK, it was important that the book was printed and received in good time and to specifications. Mixam helped me sort out some of the technical requirements and then printed and delivered the order - bettering the expected time frame. The books were received in excellent condition and well packed for a 6,000 plus mile air flight. Everyone was so impressed with the quality of the work. I have only the highest praise for Mixam and I will be using them again this year! Awesome company, great service.

Amazing service from Mixam! I've never used them before and was a bit hesitant as their prices seemed too good to be true but i'm so happy with the result. Their customer service was wonderful as well, both before printing and during production/printing. The end product is great quality as well and I couldn't be happier.
Great service and fast turnaround

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 suites 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.
