Hey book makers, we wanted to let you know that, starting in October, our North American printers will be using a slight reformulation of our Standard Paper stock. It’s a small, barely noticeable change – but we know Blurb customers care about the details (you, with the loupe, we’re talking to you). It’s still an 80# paper, great for photos and for text, but there are some subtle changes you might notice:
- Slightly glossier sheen
- Four points brighter
- Slightly bluer
We’ve calibrated the printers with our current ICC profiles, so there’s no need for you to do anything on your end. Also, even though the paper is technically four points brighter, it’s still not at the level of our glossier Premium Lustre and ProLine Pearl papers.
So, that’s all. Still everything you’ve come to expect from Blurb. Just a slightly different formulation for our paper. But hey, we thought you should know.
