My initial trepidation at putting my work into print was calmed with a phone call. Tremendously helpful. From that point all seemed obvious and worked perfectly. The finished job arrived as promised and is fantastic. The price was very affordable. From website interface to packaging, a delightful experience. Thank you very much.

Exceptionally helpful with me, as this is the first time I've used a printing service and was quite unsure of the process. Excellent and responsive customer service team, and the final product is absolutely stunning. Would definitely recommend!

Site easy to use and staff very helpful when I called up for help in uploading a file. Only niggle is that delivery arrived with plastic in the packing - eco-friendly padding would be better!

I printed a hardback book with Mixam. The colours are great, and overall quality very good. I was kept in contact with throughout the process, so overall a good experience.

I cant recommend Mixam enough, this was first time I had a book printed and they couldnt have made things easier for me. The online ordering process was great, having ability to see your product online in both a proof copy and also a flick through; The ordering process was great and the team in Mixam also highlighted a number of bleed issues in my document and worked with me to resolve them. Delivery was really quick, and my book turned out even better than I thought it would - The main reason I picked Mixam was for price, but after using the service I wouldnt look anywhere else - amazing all round service

Can’t thank Mixam enough. Especially Lucian who enabled us to get the correct format, print and delivery on time. You made a very special person very happy when she opened her first ever novel.

I ordered some hardback books, and Mixam were great in all areas: communications, helpful staff, technicals, 'Click+Collect' delivery, and the final product was fabulous. Honestly speaking, they're brilliant. :-)

Their service is great, they are there to support on any technical (and non technical) questions and the product is very good quality and reasonable in price. I have used them several times and will continue!!
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.
