Product turned out to be perfect. Price was very affordable. Hard to get someone to print only 8 copies.

Amazing customer service. They helped me with my order to fix the problems of my own doing. My hard bound picture book is beautiful. The pricing reasonable, production and shipping, and received all happened in two weeks. I can’t stop looking at my book. Thank you!

Every thing was great. I held back one star because of delivery delays. I do not feel I was given the truth about the delays.

The best friendly help from the tech folks at Mixam. Patient and clear. Prompt printing. Great product. Have used Mixam several times and always satisfied.

Quality of product was great. Glossy pages and thicker paper than other companies I have tried. Only complaint is the time it took, but it was worth the wait.

The quality of the print is beyond what I was expecting! I printed an academic review in a book-format for my partner as it was her first major review. Everything was just perfect - she loved it, claiming it was one of her favourite gifts ever! The production + shipping time is reasonable for the work that has to go into it. Absolutely would recommend!
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.
