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.

Really pleased with my experience of Mixam. I edit a yearly publication for a local society. Last year's print job with another provider was a bit of a disaster and ended up going out a month late. Mixam were about a third of their cost, the website was really easy to upload the artwork for, the lead time was just two weeks (and that included resubmitting one page of the artwork a couple of times because my proportions weren't right) and they delivered bang-on when they said they would and with excellent quality. I'm most certainly using Mixam again for next year's publication. (As an aside, the Mixam webpage even showed the Google Street View image of my house when I submitted the order. Either they have some ninja web development skills or I'm just really easily impressed!)

I am so happy with this company. The Customer Service Department is TOPS! They resolved a shipping problem I was having (not their fault) and kept me informed EVERY step of the process. They responded immediately to any and all my questions...PLUS... the quality of the finished product EXCEEDED any of my expectations. I would encourage people to give them a try because you will only get 100% satisfaction by using them. THANK YOU Mixam!!!!

Info for file setup

Paperback 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
Your cover is made up of four pages - a front cover, an inside front cover, a back cover, and an inside back cover.
Bleed
We ask for a 1/8" bleed on all paperback books. Please do not include any important content within this area.
Format and orientation
You can choose either an Letter (8.5" x 11") or Digest (5.5"x8.5") format, and a landscape or portrait orientation.
Binding
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.
