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.

Fast service, good support and excellent value for money. I have just had my first Mixam book, but it certainly won't be my last.

Excellent customer service with a thorough design check system that caught potential design problems before they went to print. Final product was of the highest quality. I'd definitely recommend!

Honestly, way better than I expected of any printing online. I never write reviews, but I just keep opening my book in awe that it's so nicely bound. Took a while for shipping, but could be because of the pandemic. Really great customer service. I'm buying more.

Excellent quality, good service and a very reasonable price. I've worked in publishing for over 20 years, and would definitely use Mixam again and recommend the company.

I have been using MIXAM for several years for some seasonal printing. The product is of high quality and the staff with whom I have had contact have always been cheerful, friendly, and attentive to detail They have also been happy to make changes to my files to correct my errors. This year a battle with PowerPoint left me cross and exhausted and I was all set to move to printing without removing the PowerPoint errors. However, my MIXAM contact did not see this as an acceptable result and efficiently and rapidly proceeded to make the necessary changes. Thankyou MIXAM!

Wow!!! This was my first time ordering from Mixam and I am highly content with my order. I purchased two magazines and received four IN TOTAL! On top of that, the magazine quality was amazing! Many of the photos I used weren’t the best quality but the magazine looked really good. I will definitely be purchasing more in the future! Btw, shipping time was quick! It took about two weeks to deliver.

Was very happy with the service - the quality of the delivered A0 poster I designed was fantastic and I found the telephone support to be second to none when I was initially uploading my design to the website. I’ll definitely be using them again and would definitely recommend too.

Quality provided was excellent and up to professional standard. Their customer service was helpful, though occasionally takes some time to get back to you. Prices are some of the best I've seen. I'd highly recommend Mixam for any printing needs.

Very satisfied with the service, although initially I was frustrated at not being able to talk to an employee on the phone. However , when I did get through, the people were very helpful and guided me through the process I am very pleased with the brochures, and how quickly they produced them.

Info for file setup

Paperback 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
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.
