Book Printing

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.

Great communication from the artwork review team on ensuring there is no white space or artwork cut through. Wire binding is high quality and print is very crisp.

Easy to use website, great email updates and printing was good quality. I have not always had good luck with printing companies so I appreciate Mixam. I have printed with them a couple times now.

Love this site. We have used them several times for making magazines for my classes and they really make it easy and even check up on you.

I've used other print on demand services but was very happy with the print quality, print time and packaging. My magazines from other printers were just stuck in those cover boxes and I had numerous print problems with covers getting creased. This order was placed in a plastic cover bag and secured with cardboard/foam liner in a well protected cover box.

I’ve been dealing with this company 7 years always have experience great service. Even during the paper shortage service was still good.

Customer service was amazing. They worked with me on shipping changes when I had to leave town for a family emergency. They also helped me with formatting issues. The books look great and arrived quickly. I will use Mixam again.

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.
We ask for a 1/8" bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
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.
