The best price and quality

Light. Robust. Unputdownable. Paperback books, bound to last.

Easy to pick up. Hard to put down. Paperback books are made to be read. But they’re also often tossed into suitcases, shoved into pockets, and enjoyed on trains, planes, and sunloungers. It’s important that they maintain their integrity, so that their stories can be told.

Choose from our range of binding options (perfect bound or stapled), paper types and weights, and trim sizes to make sure your epic sci-fi tale or windswept romance novel stays in one piece.

Just created my first book and I’m so pleased I used Mixam! I wasn’t sure what company to use but I saw the great reviews they had so went with them. They were easy to contact via email and phone when I had questions. So pleased with the finished product! Great price too!

High quality and on time. Often early and even getting more than ordered. I love Mixam.

Good enough for getting a paper copy in two weeks. But the quality is not so perfect. For example there are small bubbles on the cover.

We ordered 5 copies of a short book that my wife had created for a final year degree project. The finished result is absolutely superb - much better than we had hoped. Delivery time was spot on, too. Great work!

I've always used Mixam for printing magazines/zines and posters and have been more than happy with the service provided! They are happy to accommodate any requests you may have and respond to questions quickly. They are also helpful with the printing process such as adding slug and bleed where needed and noticing any quality issues with the print files.

This was my first order with mixam and I have to say the service I received was a excellent. They emailed me advising of an issue that needed addressing before print and were very helpful with my telephone query. I received my book afew days later and I’m absolutely delighted with the end result.

Excellent service and end product. My first zine/booklet and I couldn’t be happier. It consisted of photos of my grandson’s u9 grassroots football team which I handed out to all the boys and parents. They were really pleased.

I ordered my first ever comic book to be printed. I had no idea what I was doing, but thankfully the mixam team were incredibly helpful. They advised and suggested formatting changes to make sure I ended up with the best product possible. It’s the best customer service experience I have ever had online. First class!

Info for file setup

Paperback 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
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 3mm bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Binding
The binding options available for paperback books are perfect bound or stapled. For books with fewer than 25 pages, we recommend printing as a booklet.
Please note:
These available binding options are entirely dependent upon the number of pages and paper weight selected for your order. This is because there comes a point where the combined paper thickness is too much to effectively staple or stitch together, and will instead need to be held together by adhesive (otherwise known as ‘perfect binding’).

The opposite is true if there are too few pages for perfect binding to work. Our dynamic ordering system is smart enough to know when a limit has been reached, and will automatically switch to the required binding option.

Spine (for Perfect Binding)
If you choose perfect binding you have the option to upload the spine as a separate print 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 3mm bleed at the top and bottom.
Completing your order
Before you can complete your order, you must make sure all page placeholders have been completed. For example, if you are ordering 32 pages, all 32 boxes must be filled. If you do not have enough content, you must add blank pages.
