Our May Book covers are made from a flexible coated canvas paper. They are durable, but you can bend them. A week of use and it's broken in like a pair of jeans. That's the best part! The binding is hand-sewn because it keeps the pages from coming unattached and it makes the entire book completely recyclable! Yay for hand-sewn, eco-friendly May Books!

Each May Book has a set number of inside pages. Minis have 64 pages, Classics have 80 pages, and Larges have 96 pages. For this reason, we do not add/combine inside page options at this time.

Notebook pricing depends on the size and level of personalization :)

Mini May Books have a base price of $12 and can total up to $18*

Classic May Books have a base price of $15 and can total up to $23*

Large May Books have a base price of $20 and can total up to $28*

*Adding a monogram is an additional $5 and choosing a specialty inside page option will add $3 (all inside page options are specialty except for lines, dot grid, graph, and blank).
