Price Reduction for SpaceX and Micro Lighting Fixtures

“Our goal is to help in making Creamsource products accessible to a broader audience, and we believe these changes are a positive step towards that.

 

For the SpaceX, we’ve listened to feedback and appreciate that the higher price point has been a barrier for some customers. We’re addressing this by not only reducing the price but also including optics (worth $350) as part of the standard SKU (K-CSX-1200-C).

 

Separately, we’re also lowering the price for our Micro lighting fixtures. This change is a part of our commitment to provide high-quality lighting solutions that fit a variety of budgets.”
