Mixam is rated Excellent on

Mixam staff was very helpful. The uploading of files was easy. The template for the pages allowed for the added bleed making the page greater than the finished product, however the book cover template would not allow for the required bleed which made it difficult to submit without help from staff. Also most photo books that I have purchased and all of the ones I have published included end papers in the front and the back of the submitted pages. This was not the case at Mixam which made the end product look and feel unfinished. These end papers should be automatic in my opinion like my other printing companies supplied.

I needed a small print run for a limited edition print and found Mixam at random. The sample pack drew me in for the quality of their printing. The process for set up involved a lot of back and forth, but the rep was super communicative and offered suggestions for other things to try to get the layout to fit perfectly. Production and shipping time were far within my expectations, the books arrived quicker than expected. The quality is amazing. I was floored. I had hardcover books done with full color interior and dust jackets. Definitely will use again for print runs like this!

I absolutely love working with this company. I truly lucked out when I decided to give them a try. As a self-published author, I needed a way to print my first book, but I wanted to get a mockup before I placed a bulk order. This was one of the few printers that did not require a minimum order. I was so happy with the result that I chose them as my print vendor. Since then I have printed hundreds of books with Mixam and recommend them to everyone I can. I recently changed my book and was having trouble getting my pages to stay in order online. I called them and they walked me through the process. When that didn't work they were able to rearrange my book on their end. There was another incident where I received a bulk order and wanted to blind ship my books directly to the customer. They put me in contact with their international brand and they worked with me as well. Now, having just published my second book I look forward to working with Mixam again. They are great.

This was my first time printing anything, let alone a REAL book, and I had SOOOO many issues and questions- all of which were 100% explained over and over and over to me and because of their excellent customer service, assistance, and professional printing, our little book looked amazing and everyone LOVED it!!! Thank you!

Excellent quality & customer service.

The staff was very helpful in the final cover of the book since the directions on the website were not clear that three different files had to be uploaded and the dimensions on the help PDF were incorrect. They were able to work with our single cover file. The project arrived faster than promised. Would recommend Mixam to everyone.

Good quality, and it's nice that an actual person reviews submitted artwork before it goes to print to check for any big red flags :)

These folks answer the phone and since they have operations in the United States and England you can almost call them 24/7 and get help. I had to call a few times to get help with my project and every person was helpful and knowledgeable not just a customer message service as you get with others. The product was delivered on time, quality was perfect, and it was overall a great experience.

I had a fantastic first experience working with Mixam! Any questions or concerns I had were easily handled by the representatives I spoke to on the 800 line. Super friendly and reliable help. Even my late concerns were caught and handled wonderfully. 5 out of 5, I will use them again!

I placed an order for 5 hardcover books. Each book is 350 pages with the designs filling the paper edge to edge. They turned out amazing. The print quality is exceptional. Joanna in customer support went above and beyond to ensure my order was completed and delivered by my deadline. Thank you Mixam for a job well done!

I received my books yesterday and am absolutely thrilled with the quality of printing and binding. After all my work writing this story the finished product is worth a gold star!

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!
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.
