Upload your print file

Uploading your print file to Mixam is easy!

Select ‘Upload’ or simply drag and drop your files into the Artwork area. You can even select multiple files at a time.

You can also add a file directly from Dropbox, or paste a URL from WeTransfer or similar services using the ‘Choose from Web’ option.

We recommend supplying files in PDF format; however, we can accept many other formats, including JPG and PNG. We do not recommend JPG and PNG formats for text. All files will be converted to CMYK for printing, which can alter the colour.

If you’re printing a booklet, our system allows you to shuffle the pages and insert additional blank pages. No other online printer lets you do that!

Proof your print file

To proof your file, click on a thumbnail to enlarge any page for closer inspection, and to see any highlighted warning areas. Our advanced online proofing system helps to highlight any issues with your text, bleed, layout, and image resolution.

You can click ‘Proof’ to generate a downloadable flat PDF proof of your print job.

Some of our product proofs are displayed in 3D, so you can see how they will fold, or how the pages will turn. If you’re printing a booklet or other multi page document, you’ll even get an online flipbook to browse!

You can share your design (even before ordering!) with colleagues or clients for that final seal of approval. Select ‘Share’ and choose from a number of popular social media platforms, send via email, or generate a URL or embed code.
