Amazing quality books, really happy with them! The option to change something after you’ve uploaded is great, this really saved me as I uploaded one of my pages with the text missing. Customer service is really helpful and friendly, I will definitely use Mixam in future and recommend it to my friends.

Mixam have produced my order of A4 size, hardbound, 212 page books and the quality is excellent. They helped greatly with set up advice and the people I had contact with during this process were very helpful and polite. Production and delivery were first class and in the time promised. Altogether a very positive experience and will use their services again when the need arises. Alan White

Unbelievable service and quality. I designed yearbooks for my sons school using Mixams downloadable template and the final book was amazing. For the price you will not find any better. All parents were really impressed and looks like the books will last for decades as a nice keepsake. Won’t be going anywhere else to get my books printed from now on.

A splendid and extremely helpful team throughout which has produced an excellent book. This was my first time getting anything printed and they were very patient with such a novice. I would highly recommend them for their quality of work, professional support and very good pricing.

Info for file setup

Hardcover Book Print File Setup

How to upload your 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.
The spine should be supplied as a separate file when uploading single pages. 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.
