Bluelines were far more common with books than with magazines, and they are dodgy to send to an author anyway, as they fade rapidly and dramatically in bright light. Nowadays, there are very few printers who send a genuine blueline, and even so, the need for a magazine to send copies to multiple authors would probably put you into Xerox territory anyway.
