The best price and quality
paperback

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.

Perfect bound book

I was extremely happy with price and delivery time. Print quality was good but I was not so pleased with the finished product as the trim seemed a bit hit and miss (or maybe it was an issue with the folding).

Very happy with the outcome although what would be of good help is, showing examples of the different types of papers you can print on. I took uncoated because I was unsure but I ordered a second time, gloss, and that was what I was aiming for Initially
Great service and the finished product…

I never write reviews
Ian Kiddley

I never write reviews, but I really feel I need to on this occasion. I needed to print a small batch of US size comics for the promotion of a music video. Mixam have been excellent and have really exceeded my expectations. It is always a difficult decision when you find a company through a web search. You might have a limited budget or timeline & no previous experience with the company, so you have to take a chance based on customer reviews (which you're never sure if they are genuine or not). You really want it to be right first time. I'm pleased I decided to use Mixam. The quality of print and the product is very high. Their website is easy to use, has FAQ's which are useful and their upload page was extremely easy to work with (it doesn't time out on you so you have time to look and make amendments). The packaging was very good and the turnaround was exactly as quoted. I will definitely be using them again without any doubt.
Fantastic service

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.
