Why do I have to give my email address to use Lulu?

Your email address is unique and is easy for you to remember. It is also your Lulu sign in ID and will only be used to keep your publishing projects secure and to send you order confirmation when you make purchases. Used with a Lulu password, your email also speeds check out.

What should my password be?

When you create a password, pick something that is easy for you to remember, but difficult for others to guess. A mix of upper- and lower-case letters and numbers is considered a good password.

  • Your password must be at least 6 characters and cannot contain any spaces. We suggest you use a combination of letters and numbers.
  • You can use some special characters (such as & # or _ ). You may not use < or >.
  • Passwords are case sensitive; for example, "SIGNINID," "SigninID," and "signinid" are not the same.

I replied to a Lulu Support email.
Why haven't I received a response?

If you submitted a support email to Lulu and didn't receive an auto-response acknowledging receipt of your request, your email provider is probably blocking emails from Lulu.

There are several reasons your email provider may block Lulu emails: Lulu emails may be marked as spam, your internet service provider (ISP) may be blocking them, or your network firewall may have blacklisted. Please check your email settings or contact your ISP representative to find out why you are not receiving our emails.

To prevent emails from the Lulu support team from being sent to your spam folder, add "Lulu Support" to your spam filter whitelist.
