Excellent product at a good price, even for small runs, and a really quick turn around. The hard back book I had printed up looks great, Will be sending more for printing as soon as my new computer arrives. Found the template easy to use and the instant quote whenever I changed anything was very useful, I would recommend Mixam without qualms.

I was delighted with the quality of printing. My hardback was my grandfather's autobiography and fulfilled a long-held ambition of my Aunt's to see it in print. Even the World War I photos he took on the front look superb. With many thanks to the team.

Very helpful with the formatting, which I found very tricky. The opportunity to proof-read online was essential. The product looks professional, and rather beautiful, and at an affordable price. I shall definitely offer further books to Mixam.

This company is absolutely brilliant - I have never printed a book before and they made it so easy. I was concerned at first that the quality might not be as good because it was so much cheaper than other companies - but there was nothing to be concerned about - I could not have been more impressed with the outcome. They helped me organise the formatting etc for print, and were really quick at responding to all on my enquiries - plus they helped me to incorporate changes I didn't know how to make myself. There was an error on one of the copies - they responded and handled it straight away. The service and quality was 5*, thank you.

I used Mixam to create a book my son himself wrote the book. The book was delivered on time to him and good quality.

I have written an autobiography for family use and had no knowledge of printing companies. Mixam was recommended to me by a friend who had recently used them and I am truly delighted with everything - the book and print quality, the back up service, the speed of production and transport - nothing can be faulted. Everything they promised was delivered...and all for a very sensible price. I have no hesitation in recommending them.

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.
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.
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.
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.
