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.

The paper quality, print quality and customer service and delivery are excellent. One of the copies has a small spot of glue on the cover, the rest are impeccable. What I didn't like very much is how the spine looks, that's why I put 4 stars and not 5. But I recommend Mixam and I will repeat in the future

Great quality product. Having said we need the product before a certain date, they worked towards getting our product to us ahead of schedule which we were impressed with.

I have used Mixam many times over the years, and have found them easy to work with, and always helpful when needed. Simply put, if you want anything printed it is the best place to go.

The new book The Best of Chiltern Wildlife is a great success and I'm very happy with the printing. I have now placed 22 jobs with Mixam, ranging from marketing flyers, to theatre programmes to soft back books. It's a simple system, and when things do get complicated with uploading files, the team at Mixam always help with technicalities over the phone. Turnaround is very prompt and prices are fairly unbeatable. I've just printed a substantial book called the Best of Chiltern Wildlife - firstly 20 preview copies digitally and now 1,000 copies on the litho press with a matt laminated cover. The finish, colour and paper on both was very good. I shall continue using Mixam for my publishing work, having been in the business 30 years in 2020, and having seen great changes in technology and print processes. Thank you.
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 1/8" bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an Letter (8.5" x 11") or Digest (5.5"x8.5") 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 1/8" 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.
