Introducing Blurb ProLine
It's a personal thrill to offer this level of creative choice.
Make it extraordinary
At Blurb, we're all about beautiful, high-quality books – and we know you are too. So no matter what kind of book you make, it has to meet the standards of your most demanding client who, let's be honest, is you.
That's why we're so excited to offer our ProLine options – the first of many more ultra-primo book customisation options to come.
ProLine offers you:
- Two new professional-grade papers
- A curated selection of four new end sheets
- New designer hardcover linens
ProLine options are available for books of up to 240 pages made with any of our book-making tools.
More to come
This is just the beginning. We'll be expanding the creative range to include more end sheets and professional-grade paper choices. Watch this space for the latest ProLine news.
Beautiful paper for professional results
Our new ProLine papers are made by Mohawk Fine Papers, one of the most respected makers of paper for use in photography and design books. Our Premium papers come from NewPage, a company devoted to quality and sustainability.

ProLine Pearl Photo
Our ProLine Pearl Photo offers all the goodness of a professional-grade photographic paper: Superb opacity, great tonal range, a rich feel and the substantial weight you’d expect from the highest-end paper. Images print crisply and sharply with excellent colour saturation and deep blacks, making for great contrast and beautiful range.
Our ProLine Uncoated paper has excellent opacity, a luscious feel and a lightly textured finish. It prints with excellent colour fidelity (minimal dot gain, or in other words, no loss of image detail even in the shadows) and offers natural-looking four-colour printing and velvety solids. A photographer’s favourite, this archival-quality paper is well-suited to a range of book projects.
Our Premium Matt paper has a slight sheen to it, which adds richness to its finish and feel.
Our Premium Lustre paper is slightly more lustrous than our Premium Matt paper but not as glossy as our ProLine Pearl Photo paper. It offers great tonal range and contrast, and prints with deeper blacks than our Premium Matt paper.
Custom end sheets
If you make a Hardcover with Dust Jacket or ImageWrap book, your book will have end sheets. End sheets are the pages glued to the inside of your book’s front and back cover and form the first and last unprinted pages of your book. Our ProLine acid-free, 115 gsm (80 lb) end sheets are available in a range of shades to help you create a truly unique, finished look for your book. All of our ProLine End Sheets have a light texture for a great feel.

New hardcover linens
Make a Hardcover book with Dust Jacket and choose from two cover finish options: our Standard Black Linen or one of two new ProLine Linens.
The new ProLine Linens are uncoated, giving them more of a natural fabric feel. Take your ProLine linen cover to get it embossed or foil stamped, or leave it as is for a clean, modern look.
