What our customers are saying on :

Mixam is rated as 9.5 out of 10 by based on 1060 reviews.
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.
Excellent

Very professional, helpful and good quality prints.
Simply the best

Amazing service. Superb quality. Just the way you want a business to operate. X
A4 landscape hardback artbook
[Books]
I needed an artbook printed for my end of degree show and I am glad I chose Mixam, the price was good and the quality superb, queries and alterations were dealt with promptly and my books arrived a day before schedule. You can't just drop in pictures and expect to get a decent result, as with some other sites, but as long as you have prepared your work sufficiently, their book builder is easy to use and the FAQs are comprehensive enough for you to solve many problems. All in all I couldn't be happier with my books and would definitely recommend Mixam
Outstanding!
[Books]
I had looked at many others who had similar work produced and by chance I was asked to consider Mixam. Today I received the package of books and the result far exceeds what I expected. The quality of production is highly professional - first class. I am so very happy with the quality and would not consider any other printer.
Excellent Black & white image printing
[Books]
Particularly pleased that the Black & white images were printed very well with excellent tones and no colour cast. Well done and I look forward to do more books with you.
Good quality and very helpful staff

Good quality and very helpful staff
Fantastic customer service from Nicola
[Books]
Fantastic customer service from Nicola. She answered countless emails quickly and politely and was a pleasure to deal with. My books arrived when they were meant to and are of high quality. I have already recommended Mixam to lots of book making friends and will definitely be using their services again.
Very Helpful
[Books]
Such a good book publisher, it was straight forward to upload your book onto, and re arrange the pages. Nicola (on of the employers) was very helpful in making sure I got everything right - including the spine, bleed etc. This is great, as otherwise if this didn't happen my book wouldn't look as great as what it does! The prices are very reasonable, and I would recommend this website to everyone!
Excellent quality
[Books]
They went well beyond the quality I was expecting. Very very recommendable!
Wow! Book printed like off a shop shelf!
[Books]
I have written 15,000 word a story for my daughter, along with colourful illustrations and wanted a proper hardback book printed for her and other family members to keep. I was on a budget and wanting a balance of price v quality. I got the balance wrong.... the quality way out weighs the price! I opened the box and the wife's words were "wow! They look like you've just bought them in Waterstones!" Wonderful quality, amazing tool to proof the book and fast turnaround. They even had a mark on one of the books, tiny, they sent it anyway as an extra! 7 copies not 6. If you want a quality book printed, I put my name to them!
Info for file setup

Hardcover book print
file setup information

How to supply your print files
Like all other products, we ask that the file is supplied as single individual pages, not double pages.
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 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.
The spine will also need a 20mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Quiet area
Within the cover page size we recommend a quiet area or margin of at least 8mm around the edge.
