My complete experience with Mixam was very good indeed. They answered my questions, sorted out my uploading of files and the project was completed before originally stated. Also very pleased with the quality of the product. Would not hesitate to use Mixam again and recommend to others.

With the experience of two other self-publishing books I wanted to have just 20 copies of a small family book. Mixam are amazing; they give clear instructions as to what is needed and when you upload your file(s) each page, sorry SIDE, is displayed — including the cover. The cover they explained could be deigned in Word with the spine as a single page. Best of all at the start, you can see the price by selecting Type of Book, Hard or Softback, Number of books, pages, paperweight etc, until you are happy with a price. If you have a book I urge you to try Mixam. I am very satisfied.

Decent Hardbacks Delivered exactly on time, well packed with minimal damage just a few scuffs. One more copy than I ordered too! Not much communication from staff. I followed their exact specs for the cover and it ended up off-centre :/ Hardbacks are not stitched, seem to be perfect bound, with a hard cover added. The spine of the perfect bound bit isn't glued to the cover either, leading to a slightly weird weighting. Will probably use again, but will ask for extra clarification on covers

Price and quality excellent. Service good as well, but because of the Corona Virus, had small problem contacting them. Once Claire was on the case it was soon sorted.

Mixam provides a first class service. The system was really easy to use and I was finally able to complete my project which was to have some beautiful hardback copies produced of my Grandmother’s Autobiography. The books are stunning! There was an issue where my original delivery was damaged in transit and they were quick to arrange replacements for me. Fabulous customer service and workmanship. I highly recommend Mixam.

Excellent service! The final product is amazing! It's sturdy, and super high quality! Outstanding customer service as well. A gentleman stayed on the phone with me for over half an hour helping me to finalise my design. I would definitely recommend them! Quick and easy to use.

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.
