Our process

How do you print online with Mixam? Get from start to finish with this simple guide.

 

Create a Mixam account

Click the 'Sign In' button at the top of our website. We'll direct you to a web page asking you to enter your email address and password so you can access your account.

If you haven't signed up for a free account, enter your email address and select the option that reads 'No, I'm a new customer'. Click 'Create An Account' and enter your name, email address and a memorable password.

When you've filled in your details, click 'Register', and you will receive an email soon after asking you to 'Activate Your Account' (but check your Spam box if the email appears there). Click the 'Activate Your Account' button in your email, and you can safely store and locate your print projects past and present in one place. A Mixam account will save your print specifications, your saved shipping and billing addresses should you wish to reorder items.

 

Get a quote

No need to wait for an email or phone call - our Instant Price Calculator will give you an accurate quote in seconds. Go to the All Products tab at the top of our website, and click the item you want to print. Once you've clicked the product, scroll down to the Instant Price Calculator and select your print specifications from the available options. We will highlight your chosen specifications in blue. The quote and estimated delivery dates adjust automatically every time you make a change. The Calculator will even offer you alternative specifications and turnaround times.

Our Price Calculator is the perfect tool to help you get the best price for your prints every time. Not only is our Price Calculator fast, but it can save you money, too. And you only pay when you are ready to print.

Upload your print file

Upload your files in the most convenient way to you. Select Upload, drag and drop your files onto the Artwork Dashboard or select multiple files at a time. Whether you use Dropbox, paste a URL from WeTransfer or use the Paste Artwork URL option, uploading files is easy.

And the best part? Our system lets you shuffle the pages and insert extra blank pages - no other online print service can do that!

Proof your print file

Our intelligent online proofing system highlights print issues before they happen. Your Artwork Thumbnails will highlight key print issues, while the Preview button will generate a virtual 3D depiction or flipbook so you can see how your work turns and folds. The Downloadable Proof clearly represents how your files will appear in print before the physical copies arrive on your doorstep.

You can share your design with whoever you like for a final seal of approval before ordering. Select the Share button and choose from several popular social media platforms, send via email, or generate a URL or embed code.

Please go to the Details tab and fill in your Billing and Delivery address once you have reviewed your files. You can then click on the Payments tab and pay for your prints using the most convenient method. Finally, you only need to click the Confirm button. This step tells us you've checked your proofs, and everything is as it should be.
