If you're planning to sell your book to others, order a large number of copies, or produce a book for an important event, project or client, we recommend ordering and reviewing a single Blurb-printed copy first.
This "proof" copy allows you to see how your book looks in print using Blurb's papers, inks, trimming and binding processes and make changes before you place the final order.
It's also a chance to catch any issues you may have overlooked while you were reviewing your work on screen. (Blurb does not review or edit any of your content or design).
It's no fun to order 100 copies of your book only to find that you spelled your client's name wrong, or that you positioned an image with someone's head too close to the edge of the page.
Note that Blurb doesn't offer free proof copies, partial books, or unbound draft versions.
Be sure you allow yourself enough time in your schedule to account for book production and shipping timess and any final deadlines you may have. Check to see how long it will take to receive a book using our shipping calculator.
