Covid-19, the Wilderlands and Printed Poster Maps

I just got a notice from Onebookshelf that their card/poster printing facility was shut down as part of their state's efforts to combat the spread of Covid-19. All card and poster options are set to private.

Accordingly any purchase of any Bat in the Attic Wilderlands Map PDFs product made on or after March 21st (this covers a handful of existing purchases) will be matched with a discount coupon to buy the print copy at cost plus $1 (so it shows as a sale).

The only issue is that I won't be issuing the coupons until after Onebookshelf starting printing cards and posters again. This is because these coupons work on private projects. However OBS makes it easy to identify (by customer #) who purchase products and to issue a discount coupon.

The print copies of the guidebooks still can be purchased.

The at-cost prices
Wilderlands of High Fantasy $4.80
Fantastic Wilderlands Beyonde $4.80
Wilderlands of the Magic Realm $3.84
Wilderlands of the Fantastic Reaches $3.84
Bundle: $17.28

Would your contract with Bledsaw allow you to keep these products up for sale if you keep them at cost?

Since it involves a sale of the PDF in order to get the coupon it amount to the same net profit as I don't charge extra for the PDFs on a print sale.

On the 20th of March I ordered the Wilderlands guidebook print bundle and the Wilderlands map print bundle. I recieved the guidebook bundle last week but was informed yesterday(April 2nd) that drivethru had cancelled my map order. Needless to say I am less than impressed. Will I also be able to get the maps at a later date or do I now own four useless books?

You will be able to get the maps after the covid situation is resolved and OBS is allowed to reopen their card/poster printing facilities.

I looked at your sales order and you should have the Map PDFs in your library. Let me know if is otherwise.
