Overall pretty good printing and good value, but uploading and sorting out the pagination etc can be complicated, fiddly and frustrating (at least for a novice like me). However...their online chat help function was brilliant! Someone not only gave me advice but then helped fix the problems so it was then good to print.

I’ll keep this short and sweet. Easy to navigate website Easy to upload documents Amazing technical help Quick turnaround (books were ready before predicted date) Amazing prices. And the quality is fantastic. I only had a very small project which required 3 prints. I’m a total novice at printing books of any kind so I really appreciated how easy Mixam made the whole process. I struggled with designing a spine and their team did it for me while keeping me up to date in their online chat. The price of the books was a fraction of the anticipated cost and the quality was perfect. I would happily use Mixam again!

Info for file setup

Hardcover Book Print File Setup

How to upload your files
You can upload 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.
The spine should be supplied as a separate file when uploading single pages. 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.
