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.

As a complete beginner at this, I very, very pleased with the help that I received and your Brendan was very patient. The quality of the finished books was excellent and their cost very competitive. I found the `virtual` book very good.

Had a trial run of our hardback book printed and we are very happy with the results. Excellent quality, good price and delivered on time. I asked for some technical support and they were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Can’t recommend them enough.

The whole artwork, uploading and delivery process was easy and efficient, with great communications and helpful, friendly staff. The books arrived in great shape as they were very carefully packaged, and the quality of printing and finishing was superb. I would have no hesitation recommending Mixam or using them again for future projects. Great job :-)

Mixam is a very responsive, responsible and reliable printing company where they make sure your printing is at the best quality it could be. Colour accuracy is prone to CMYK, nice binding and excellent paper quality they provide and would definitely recommend this for a quality printing hardcover book!
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.
