Very good quality binding, and paper. Moreover, staff quite helpful in tying up the last part of editing to make sure book is correctly printed. Only downside I found the pricing slightly on the expensive side, but can't quibble given the service and the final product. Thank you.

This is excellent service. I put together a hardback book of a family memoir and found the ordering/quoting very open and flexible. Being able to have an instant price for different options really helped with the development of what I was making. Once I was into the upload and production process the support was responsive and helpful and explained any queries I had. This was during the final run up to Christmas, which must be particularly busy. The books were delivered promptly and I am very pleased with the quality of the product and the excellent value I’ve got from this.

Mixam provide a consistently excellent service. I have used them for print for a number of years and the quality is always fantastic. Have just received my first hardcover book and it is superb. Can't wait to do another one.

Really pleased with the end result. Excellent quality. The ordered was however possibly slightly delayed by the fact that staff only work overnight therefore no one answers the telephone contact number during UK daylight hours. I had to ring at 5 a.m. UK time to speak to someone. However when I did they were fantastic! Really helpful and they rushed my order through so that it arrived by Christmas. Thank you so much!!!

I wanted to get 10 copies of a book (my father's life story) produced. It was very easy to obtain a quote from Mixam and their prices were good. It was easy to use their website to upload content (I work in software, and I was impressed with the end-to-end experience of using their site -- well done to the IT team). The staff were very proactive and responsive in helping to get the final layout details correct. The finished product is of excellent quality and was delivered exactly on time. Thanks Mixam!

Excellent service - quote tool on their website is extremely easy to use and has many options to choose from. I called them for some guidance and they called me back promptly. Any issues with files you upload are flagged with instructions on what you need to do to put it right. Printing and delivery was speedy and I'm delighted with the finished product - looks very professional. I couldn't have asked for anything more from them.

I ordered two 210x210 hardcover book prints through Mixam. Both were made and shipped quickly and professionally. I would definitely recommend this service to others.

My 1st time experience of writing my autobiography so was very much in the dark when it came to the printing. The team talked me through as I uploaded my files. They were so helpful on the phone and put my mind at rest, and the final product when it arrived was more than I could have hoped for. Will certainly recommend this company to my friends. Thank you for making the whole process an enjoyable one.

Info for file setup

Hardcover 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
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 8/10 of an inch on all sides. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Spine
The spine should be supplied as a separate 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 8/10 of an inch bleed at the top and bottom.
Quiet area
Within the cover page size we recommend a quiet area or margin of at least 1/3 of an inch around the edge.
