A typical Bloom book has prebuilt content slots in the front and back matter. A custom branding pack can fill these slots with text or graphics to create a consistent branding across a collection of books.
Standard branding slots include the following:
- Front cover top
- Front cover bottom
- Credits page top
- Credits page bottom
- Title page bottom
- Outside back cover top
- Outside back cover bottom
In addition, a branding pack can declare:
- Default copyright notice
- Default license notice
- Default license notes
Creating a custom branding pack is a paid service. If you think you need a custom Xmatter pack, contact the Bloom team at [email protected].
You can do a lot with a custom branding pack, there are limits: see What Bloom branding cannot do below.

What Bloom branding cannot do
Making a branding pack in Bloom is like decorating a house: it’s easy, but there are limits. In contrast, making a custom Front/Back Matter pack is like moving walls or adding on new rooms. With a custom front/back matter pack (called an Xmatter pack), you can add new front and back matter pages and new branding slots. Custom Xmatter packs must be created by a Bloom developer.
Creating custom Xmatter packs is a paid service. If you think you need a custom Xmatter pack, contact the Bloom team at [email protected].
