Step By Step Instructions

Creating a May Book should be easy and FUN!! The hardest part is choosing a favorite pattern to use :) 

Here are step by step instructions to use once you're on our site (

  1.  Signing In:  Go to our homepage and click Sign In at the top right corner.
  2.  Finding the Notebook Builder: 
    After you've logged in, click Notebooks (; this will take you to the first step of personalization.
  3. Choosing a Size:
    The first personalization step is selecting a size. We offer large, classic, and mini notebooks. Once you click on a size, you'll be redirected to our notebook builder, where you can continue personalizing.
  4. Choosing a cover pattern!
    The second personalization step is selecting which cover pattern you want to use. This pattern will appear on the front and back cover of your May Book. You can scroll through all of our patterns and select the one you like best.  We have LOTS of designs!  Don't forget to load more designs to see them ALL!
  5. Adding a monogram!
    The third step of personalization is adding a monogram. If you do not want to add one, click "NO MONOGRAM" under Custom Text/Monogram. 

    If you do want a monogram on the front of your May Book, choose a background shape, a background shape fill, and select the Style/Font you'd like to use. Our preview generator will show you a preview of each option :)

    Choose a monogram color and enter your text into the text box.

    Take a look at the preview generator. Hopefully you LOVE what you see :)

  6. Choosing your inside pages!
    The fourth and final personalization step is selecting your inside page option. Whichever option you choose will be the only pages inside of your May Book. If you hover over each option, you can click "Preview" to see what the inside will look like. Please note that certain options are not available in all sizes and you can only select one!

  7. Adding to cart:
    When you've finished all 3 personalization steps, click "Add to Cart". Look over your cart to double check that you're ordering exactly what you want! From this page, you can edit the book if you need to make changes, save the book for later if you aren't ready to purchase, or increase the quantity if you want to order more than one of the same May Book. If everything looks great, SCROLL DOWN and click "looks good! ready to checkout". This will take you to our checkout page.
  8. Checking Out:
    If you have any vouchers, gift cards, or discount codes, enter them into the box before clicking "Continue". If you have a credit on your account that you'd like to use, it will appear under the Vouchers, Gift Cards, and Discounts section. Enter your shipping address and click "Validate". Make sure the address is correct before clicking "Save and Continue".

Choose a shipping method, then click "Continue".

Enter in your credit card information, then click "Continue".

Last step, yay! Confirm that your order is absolutely PERFECT! 

You'll be redirected to a page that says "It worked!" and shows you the order you just placed. We'll also send you an order confirmation email!  The confirmation email will be sent to the address associated with your May Designs account.  If you don't see a confirmation email within about 15 minutes, be sure to check your spam and/or promotions files -sometimes they land there!

We hope you LOVE your May Designs goodies! We will begin production right away, so you can get your order as soon as possible. Email us at if you need anything in the meantime!

    Hi there! So sorry about that! Try starting from our home page (, then selecting Notebooks. Once you're there, you should be able to choose a cover pattern and then move on to the personalization page :) If this doesn't fix the issue, send us an email at and we'd love to help some more!
