Our process

How do you print online with Mixam? Get from start to finish with this simple guide.




Create a Mixam account

Safely store and locate your print projects past and present in one place. It takes less than a minute to set up, and it's free. Plus, if you want to order more of a previous item, all your print specifications, your saved shipping and billing addresses will be ready to use again.




Get a price

No need to wait for an email or phone call - our Instant Price Calculator will give you an accurate quote in seconds. The print specifications you choose determine the price, and the costs and estimated delivery dates adjust automatically every time you make a change. The Calculator will even offer you alternative specifications and turnaround times.

Our Price Calculator is the perfect tool to help you get the best price for your prints every time. Not only is our Price Calculator fast, but it can save you money, too. And you only pay when you are ready to print.

Upload your print file

Upload your files in the most convenient way to you. Select Upload, drag and drop your files onto the Artwork Dashboard or select multiple files at a time. Whether you use Dropbox, paste a URL from WeTransfer or use the Paste Artwork URL option, uploading files is easy.

And the best part? Our system lets you shuffle the pages and insert extra blank pages - no other online print service can do that!

Proof your print file

Our intelligent online proofing system highlights print issues before they happen. Your Artwork Thumbnails will highlight key print issues, while the Preview button will generate a virtual 3D depiction or flipbook so you can see how your work turns and folds. The Downloadable Proof clearly represents how your files will appear in print before the physical copies arrive on your doorstep.

You can share your design with whoever you like for a final seal of approval before your order. Select the Share button and choose from several popular social media platforms, send via email, or generate a URL or embed code.

Review your proofs online




Check, pay, and confirm

When you have inspected your files, and you're ready to pay, all you need to do is click the Confirm button to send your work into production. This step tells us you've checked your proofs, and everything is as it should be.
