COVID19 force majeure
As you know, the Great Bible Tarot companion book was announced by us and launched on March 10, 2020. The shipment of a print run of 5,000 copies was supposed to start on June 10, 2020.
But, unfortunately, we couldn't have predicted the COVID19 coronavirus pandemic, which completely paralyzed entire life and business in Europe from March until today (more than three months totally).
Our printing house, where I've thought to print my companion book, was closed by the government circular about COVID19 quarantine from March 12; this circular is still valid (!) and printing facility is closed until June 22, 2020. All our employees are on paid leave.
I think it’s quite clear that the printing facility cannot work remotely — we require the physical presence of workers near printing and binding machines.
Of course, we all ready to continue our work as soon as quarantine limitations will be removed by our government.
Nevertheless, we have already lost 3 months of time and cannot fulfill our obligations to ship out the book in full volume.
A few days before quarantine began, only a small part (less than 200 copies) was printed, but even these copies are still without covers.
Due to these objective circumstances, we have to postpone the shipment of the print run to the beginning of September 2020. If we are allowed to start the printing facility within 10 days, approximately, the updated shipment date will be September 21.
We apologize to all our customers and resellers, all our obligations remain valid and, of course, will be fulfilled. The pre-sale retail price of the companion book remains the same with a 10% discount.
All buyers who have already paid pre-orders for the book and were expecting shipment on June 10, if, for any reason, you aren't satisfied with the new shipment date and you aren't ready to wait, all funds paid by you can be returned at your first request.
As compensation for the additional delay caused by pandemic, for those buyers who are under the influence of this force majeure, but are ready to wait, we will include a gift in each pre-order placed before June 12, 2020.
God bless you,
Thank you for your understanding!
