They were great: really helpful, delivered on the correct day, no problems at all - and the product was perfect.
Amazing service from Mixam
[Books]
Amazing service from Mixam! I've never used them before and was a bit hesitant as their prices seemed too good to be true but i'm so happy with the result. Their customer service was wonderful as well, both before printing and during production/printing. The end product is great quality as well and I couldn't be happier.
Great service and fast turnaround

Very helpful company and an excellent finished product. It was my first book which was a 120 page hardback and I was naturally anxious but need not have worried. Will recommend this company unhesitatingly.
Delighted. My new go to book printer.

Kind and patient help from start to finish
[Books]
I presented Mixam with a difficult order mainly because of my poor computer skills, but a member of the team corresponded very patiently and kindly with me and helped to sort things out over a period of several days until everything was how i wanted it to be, I couldn't have done this without their help and time. I was very pleased with the quality of the end product, and with the delivery and packaging, and intend to use mixam again in the future.

Super company to deal with
[Books]
Super company to deal with and really high quality printing. Communication first class.
Fantastic company
[Books]
I have used Mixam for business and commercial printing for several years now. Their standards are very high and the quality is excellent. On those occasions when I have made a mistake, instead of letting it pass, they have always contacted me to query whether this was right...resulting in me changing my work! I can only recommend this company.
Great Experience!
[Books]
Great Experience! Nicky Hart was extremely helpful and patient (as this is my first time printing with Mixam) and I'd recommend them to anyone looking to print multiple copies of their book!
Amazing quality printing
[Books]
This was the first time I used this website and it was so easy to use! My hardback book looks AMAZING and I’m so pleased with the results, I will definitely be using this website to print my work again!
Hardcover Books - Excellent service.
[Books]
I had fifteen hardcover books printed with Mixam. The quality was excellent, even better than I had expected given the amazing prices. Much better value than anyone else I could find on the web. I did have one small problem with a mark on a couple of copies, but Mixam's excellent customer service quickly sorted this out with replacement copies of the affected books.
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 suites 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 bleed 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.
