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.

Their customer service was incredible and the product was better than I expected.

We had a small project (printing a few copies of a magazine that was our homeschool writing project). The pricing, communication and ease of printing was all excellent. Because our project was smaller, we did get pushed back in their printing queue but it was no problem for us. They communicated well about it and the magazines arrived before their estimated arrival time. They turned out beautiful and my child is so proud of their work!

One of the easiest print shops. We really enjoyed working with Mixam Inc. mostly because of how simple and streamlined the process is. The end product was better than we expected. Will be ordering again!

The process and the product are great but it took longer than expected to be produced and received. But I would use them again.

I hadn't heard of Mixam before so I was initially a bit skeptical. However, the design, proofing, and purchasing process was a breeze and they produced a top-notch product that I'd highly recommend. Their customer service team was also very helpful and swiftly resolved my issue when I had to change a delivery address mid-production. I'll be a repeat customer without a doubt.

Mixam never fails me! My favorite printing company!!
Info for file setup

Paperback 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
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.
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.
