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.

As Someone with no experience in printing and limited computer skills I was very reticent to start the process of getting a book printed. However, after talking to Simon Gilbert by phone I decided to give it a go. Simon provided all the answers and his help on the phone was invaluable. Then everything happened as planned. I'll be back it the not too distant future with another project. Tom Moore Australia

I am really pleased with the products that mixam supplied. The system of adding up prices as you fill in product specifications is very helpful and upfront. The quality of the final product was just as I had hoped. I did face issues in delays, first that my sample booklet was incorrectly addressed (I checked the order receipt and this mistake was not my end) so was 8 days late, and second that my bulk order was delayed 12 days due to the fact I was unaware of their system of sending notifications on your online account of my own mistake, and alterations that they wanted me to make weren't attended to - though they later did it themselves for me. However, now that I am educated in the system I can avoid future issues. The customer service team were exemplary, upgrading my delivery at no added cost to have my order arrive on time after the complication. The 24/7 care is greatly appreciated in times of worry. Huge thanks to Joanna Samwell for helpful and speedy responses in resolving the issue, and a mention to Brendan Lindsay for useful updates. I would definitely use Mixam again, just be sure to thoroughly read through their information to be safe and avoid unneeded complications.

This was my first time getting anything printed hardbound and while the process with Mixam started out difficult to navigate -- the moment I reached out for help from them it was WONDERFUL!! I got exactly the help I needed, in the most professional way and efficiently too! And when I received my final product I was blown away! PERFECT!! And exactly what I was hoping for. I highly recommend Mixam!

I only needed a small print run and whilst I found the UI quite awkward to use, the end result was very good. I am writing this review especially to thank Aprille who went out of her way to help me. She was very accommodating and is a credit to the company.

I've been working in print for almost ten years and I recently ordered 150 copies of my first three comic book issues. I was blown away by the quality of print and precision binding. The price was the best I could find for self publishing small runs of comics as well. Perfect for a Kickstarter creator or indie comic publisher.

Hardcover books were a new product category for our small business, so we were a little out of our depth with getting our new journal produced, but Mixam's team was responsive to my questions, helped ensure our art files were correctly laid out, and the overall quality of the production run was perfect! Would definitely recommend Mixam to others looking for quality printing/binding services.
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.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an A4 (210 x 297 mm) or A5 (148 x 210 mm) format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
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.
