Mixam is rated Excellent on

4.6 out of 5, based on 957 reviews .

Overall, I am extremely happy with the final products I received and they are well deserving of a 5 star review. I did have some criticism based on my experience. First, it should be made extremely clear (before uploading) that file names should be short and specific such as "page 1" "page 2" etc. I was told to rename my files or else it could cause issues with the printing order. I'm glad I was told to rename the files, but it should be made very clear before uploading (it is not) as it was tedious to rename all of my pages. I was also messaged and told my books were being shipped on a specific day, and then I reached out a day after and was then told there were additional delays. That was a bit frustrating. Overall, the customer service was extremely helpful every step of the way and I was thrilled with the final products that were delivered. Besides a few frustrating steps that can easily be fixed with a few changes, I had a great experience and will be using Mixam again in the future when I have printing needs!

Mary was amazing and was so very helpful in helping me adjust and create the documents for my son's comic book! She deserves an extra bonus or reward for delivering such great customer service and kindness!!!

We are complete novices. Self-published a 375 page hard cover book my mother wrote about her life story. Web site is super intuitive, lots of helpful tips and uploading the content was very easy. Support line was amazing; never waited more than 30 seconds to connect and the staff are very knowledgeable, patient and very helpful. Helped us work through very tight lead times and supply chain problems. Could not recommend more highly!

I had a family history with text and pictures printed into book form. The entire process was easy, from emailing the pdf files, selecting the format and having the books shipped to me, on time as scheduled. Excellent quality for the price and I'm very happy with the product.

Great! Just great! I can't say enough about my positive experience with Mixam. Their website user-interface is the most thorough and user friendly I've ever seen. I received my books on time and I'm extremely happy with the finished product. Now, in hand, I can say the web interface was an accurate representation of what is in my hand. When I had to make some corrections and had one concern their team responded promptly. Professional and respectful service. What more is there? Thank you, Ian S.

Very pleased with the final product. Initially struggled with parts of the process. Once I contacted support via phone I received the tools and knowledge I needed to confidently get my project to the finish line. The price point for small projects is very good. The quality of the work excellent. I confidently recommend Mixam.

We used Mixam for the first time recently and could not be more impressed with their product and great customer service. They were quick to answer any questions we had and were extremely helpful when putting together our project. Our order arrived two days earlier expected and we are very happy with it overall. The quality of the books we ordered looks very professional and something we can display with pride. A couple items were damaged in shipment and Mixam was very helpful and took care of our concern quickly. We highly recommend Mixam!

I wish they have more options on the hardcover. Like you can choose the material for the hardcover and that the spine design and uploading and sizing would be easier. But I applaud their customer service, they are on top of it!!!

Mixam is the best for any printing needs. They are affordable, quick, and reachable. I needed 50 yearbooks printed in a week and they got it done! High quality too! I must’ve called them 30 that week and they answered every call. Will definitely print with them again!!!

Excellent support from your team. Expensive, but end product was well worth the cost. Thank you for a great job.
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.
