The work was very well done, the pricing was reasonable. I docked it one star primarily due to poor communication. The job was quite delayed, but given current supply chain circumstances, it doesn't seem fair to dock another star for that.

This was my first time using Mixam. I gave them all of the illustrations for my first children's book. They were very helpful in making sure that the upload was correct. I had to make a few changes, but they were there with me every step of the way. I am so proud of the end product. Like any other bestseller, me, a newbie, can throw my shoulders back and present my book to any interested party with pride. Mixam, I will be back.

Very easy to deal with and communicate with. They had a resource issue and had to outsource my project to the UK. It went smoothly. I asked for more info. They gladly obliged and gave tracking info access. Book product (Hardback 6 x 9) was crisp and sharp! Only issue was slight bowing of covers. Maybe spine board needed to be smaller? All in all, it was a good experience, and I will order again from MIXAM.

I am writing to express how happy I was the the printing of my hardcover and paperback books. They were beautifully done and the color quality I was worried about was superior, I am very satisfied with the work. I will use them again for my next book printing. Thank you Mixam.

I had to do 86 pages because you have no choice for 84 pages. This caused me to have two extra blank pages added to my text block. The book opens with the two black end pages, which looks good. The next page should have been the title page, but instead the reader has to go through a blank page before the title page is revealed. I guess it turned out okay, but in terms of the books presentation, I would rather the reader see the title page after the black end paper. Other than this issue, I'm satisfied with the end product.

Though the project shipping date was later and shipping cost was higher than initially indicated on the website upon order, the product is perfect in every way. Well printed and well bound. Accurate colours. If you need more exact information for a shipping date and cost, I recommend you contact a human before you place the order. Customer service is excellent and replies prompt. Would use Mixam again.

Great experience! I was looking for a place to print my comic book. It was my first experience dealing with printing. I had several conversations with Mixam's support and they guided me through the process. I am very pleased with the result and would recommend their services

Absolutely excellent service and product. I was making a small order of 2 books and while the online system was mostly intuitive, I ran into some problems. I called Mixam for help with each one and they were incredibly helpful each time, providing services and expertise not normally available with their online tool and that other, similar companies would charge a huge premium for. The product itself was outstanding and was shipped to me incredibly quickly (I had it within 2 days of shipping). The cover was beautiful, the binding high-quality and the layout just as I had intended. The pictures within the book all printed perfectly in color. The only small flaw was that, just as they had warned me during my earlier phone call, the cover was slightly pixelated upon close inspection. This was due to a fault in the art assets I had to use and Mixam did their best to minimize the effect. Overall, a beautiful product I’m very proud to have in my bookshelf,

Excellent product that I am really happy with and excellent support getting the product into the production que. Poor communication on production status and timing of the shipping once the order was made and paid for. Products were late. I am glad I started in early Nov for these Christmas presents!

This company does very well printing, but the process is kind of wonky. It would be easier to send the print ready pdf to them, but instead you have to upload it, which was not the most user friendly. It did show my cover being correct, but the actual print has it backwards. It works so it is ok! Lastly, they prolonged the print to make it one day past deadline, so that was kind of a bummer. Wirh all that being said, would use again, just make sure there’s more than enough time for printing and you will be good!

Print quality is good. I found the website a bit awkward without tel help. I notice the order was delayed after I had paid and believed the order would come in a timely manner. I then placed another order as the first print run books sold out, and that order shipment was delayed too. I understand that supplies and the challenges of the pandemic can impact production, but I think the shipment date should be more accurate before the order is paid for online.

I ordered a single book — although expensive — to be sure of the quality before ordering 34 of a family cookbook. Not only was the quality great, but on line assistance was extraordinary. When you’re ordering a lot of books, as I ultimately did, the per copy price is quite reasonable. Really no need for the advance copy given the great ways to view the book on line prior to ordering. I will use Mixam again, and recommend them to others.
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.
