Mixam printed several copies of a picture book I created about the life of my late father. Most of content was vintage pics, little text, without the crispness of new graphics. They did an AWESOME job! The book came out so much better than I expected. Their staff even assisted with editing a few files for me such as the spine dimensions, etc. I very much appreciated that since I had no access to standard publishing software. Mixam made my powerpoint file look professional. My family was impressed. HIGHLY RECOMMEND MIXAM!!!

I've told each representative individually, and I'll say it again here, every single person I've interacted with at Mixam has been friendly and helpful. I recently received an order, and the quality is superb! I'm going to print everything at Mixam from now on!

From customer service to the final product absolutely splendid!

The final product was fantastic! It did take a little bit to get the cover to the specifications they needed - it would be helpful if the template information they give would have pixel dimensions in addition to lengths in inches. However, they were very helpful during the process and I couldn't be happier with the final result!

I have to say that Mixam exceeded my expectations. I had hardback, illustrated, children’s books printed by Mixam. The quality was amazing!

This company is terrific! They are not only great at communication they are excellent at printing. Most companies don't make an effort to make sure the printing is correct and not too dark or blurry but they go the extra mile and a half to please. I'm a picky artists and I loved the quality of the printing!

The good: * Our recipe book turned out exactly as expected--looks completely professional. This was a wedding party favor and all of our guests loved it. Room for improvement: * The online UI has issues detecting which is your back cover if you have an incorrect number of pages (should be a multiple of 4). Even if you upload a PDF per the filenaming guidelines (e.g. backcover.pdf), it will not place it on the back cover--and it won't tell you why. * Word and/or PDF templates would be super useful--I had to reformat my entire book because it was unclear how to do the bleeds/margins (for the binding, in particular). * My order was produced on time, but somehow didn't get shipped on time. I paid for the expedited option (extra $100) and for overnight shipping ($420), but my order arrived a day late. Mixam gave me a $50 refund, which I appreciate, but it doesn't make up for the $100 expedite fee or the difference between overnight and 2-day shipping. * Mixam's 24 hour customer support often sends you to voicemail when you call them and to email when you try to chat with them. When they do pick up they are very responsive and knowledgeable. Oddly, the non-customer chat portal gets faster responses than the customer chat portal. I'm generally pleased with the support, but it's a bit of a stretch to call it 24 hour support. I'm pleased with my experience and will order again, but I really wish that Mixam would take full responsibility for the delay and make it so that I paid for exactly what I got.
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 0.8" on all sides. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Spine
The spine will also need a 0.8" 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 0.25" 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 safety margin of at least 0.25" around the edge.
