Why did Domtar decide to create Blueline by Domtar?

For years, we’ve received pieces created on Cougar paper from graphic designers, printers and paper merchants all over the United States and Canada. Instead of saving your inspiring work created all or partially on Cougar for ourselves, we’d like to encourage you to share it with the world and inspire others.

As an added bonus, submitters to Blueline by Domtar will receive exclusive promotions and offers available only to those who participate.

What future projects do you have for Cougar Paper?

We’re in the process of creating a four part Cougar series with our printed Cougar promotions: Dream, Journey, Live and Share. The first book of the series, Dream, is now available. The 2nd book of the series, Journey, will be released in the summer of 2013 and Live during early 2014 concluding with Share, a promotion that will weave a narrative through some of the featured work from Blueline by Domtar.


I’ve seen the Domtar logo on every page of this site. Who is Domtar?

Domtar is the leading North American producer of uncoated graphic papers, offering a wide range of products including the Cougar® brand. We have a broad geographic footprint, with a strong manufacturing presence in eastern North America complemented by service locations throughout the U.S. and Canada. Domtar is also proud to be an early adopter of environmentally responsible paper sourcing and production practices and supporter of the graphic design community.

So Domtar makes Cougar paper? I thought Cougar was the name of the company.

Nope, Domtar makes Cougar paper. Still, we love how our brand is so loved by graphic designers and printers that it has taken on a life of its own.

What other brands does Domtar make besides Cougar? Do you offer an alternative if Cougar isn’t in the budget?

Different projects have different budgets, we get that. While nothing can top the superior brightness and unique feel of Cougar, Lynx® Opaque Ultra is a great option that doesn’t break the bank. Featuring a brilliant 96 brightness and true white shade, Lynx Opaque Ultra is a perfect match for rendering true-to-life skin tones, attractive natural shades and noticeably brighter colors. And just like Cougar, Lynx Opaque Ultra is Forest Stewardship CouncilTM (FSC®) certified.

Is there any way I could see how Domtar paper performs before making a purchase?

Of course, seeing is believing and requesting a sample from Domtar is a great way to see how our papers perform first-hand. Best of all, the well designed inspiring pieces are delivered to you free of charge. Request a sample here.

How has Domtar made a serious environmental commitment?

We recognize the importance of responsibly managing and protecting the forests, ensuring environmental sustainability for generations to come. That’s why as Domtar’s leading sustainability platform, EarthChoice®, promotes responsibility throughout the entire lifecycle of our products – beginning in the forest and continuing through production, usage and recycling. As part of the EarthChoice commitment to sustainable business, we’re engaged in efforts that help benefit wildlife, local economies, and the long-term health of the world’s forests.
