Changes at Christopherus

Dear Friends,

For a number of reasons, we are slowly transferring all of our printed publications over to Lulu, to print-on-demand.It will take some time for everything to be moved over to Lulu as some publications will be updated.

Our international customers will especially benefit from us using Lulu as our curriculum materials will be printed in their countries and thus shipping will be charged at a domestic rate. Considering the crazy high prices of shipping from the US to South Africa, Australia and New Zealand, for example, this is indeed good news!

Do note that it will take longer to receive your Lulu order as they have to print your materials and then ship them. Refer to your email from Christopherus (which you receive when you place an order) for details.

It is not possible to sell our Lulu materials via our 3-tier pricing (see below if you are new to Christopherus). The new prices are a bit higher than the old low income prices but less than the break even prices. Running a small business in these days of severe global economic turmoil is a challenge—we will have to monitor our prices closely.

PLEASE CONSULT THE PRODUCT PAGES TO SEE WHETHER 3-TIER PRICING IS AVAILABLE ON YOUR SELECTED MATERIALS—WE CANNOT, OF COURSE, SELL OUR THINGS ANY DIFFERENTLY THAN OUTLINED ON THE PRODUCT PAGES.

Please note that as there is a thriving black market in Christopherus materials, we cannot sell any pdfs.

We continue to sell some of  our materials via a 3-tiered pricing system. We ask people to choose whether to pay the low income, break even or supporting fees for our materials. Thus those struggling can pay less and those who can, will be enabled to help ensure Christopherus remains viable, by paying more. The low income choice also helps those friends abroad facing exorbitant international shipping fees. Please note that the break even option is the option that fits our budget projections–we do hope that those who choose low income only do so because they truly do have financial challenges as this option puts a burden on us. We greatly thank those who can pay the supporting price as this helps ensure that Christopherus survives into the future, continuing to provide the Waldorf homeschool materials which people want and need.

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE LOW INCOME OPTION IS ONLY FOR FAMILIES.

TEACHERS, GROUPS AND SCHOOLS (INCLUDING CHARTER SCHOOLS) MUST CHOOSE BETWEEN BREAK EVEN AND SUPPORTING.

Please note:

  • All sales are final – no refunds, exchanges or returns.
  • There is no customer service, no one to answer questions.
  • Processing and shipping are slower for Lulu materials as they include printing time.
  • We no longer accept purchase orders from charter schools as they are too cumbersome to administer. Too many do not pay their bills and a number have broken their agreement not to sell on our materials. We are happy to sell to charter schools if they place their orders like everyone else, paying at check-out.

Blessings on your homeschool journey,

-Donna
