The NEW CBCS Label is LIVE!1774

CBCS Pressing SteveRicketts private msg quote post Address this user
We would like to share the newly redesigned CBCS label.

We've been busy gathering information from our customers and working with a graphic designer, and we are proud to announce the launch of the new CBCS label!

Each label is branded with a complimentary colored CBCS logo in bold holofoil. The color scheme remains the same with yellow for ASP (witnessed signatures), red for VSP (verified signatures), and blue for unsigned books.

We have redesigned the label text to have an easier to read font, and increased the size of key text fields. The grade font has also been changed to allow the proper amount of impact.

The new CBCS label goes into production on January 4th. Any order that enters slab production on, or after, that date will get the new CBCS label. Orders in-house that were already slabbed prior to January 4th have the prior CBCS label.

We appreciate all the fantastic input from our customers. This label belongs to all of you, and we are honored to have it on the CBCS product!

Looks like I just missed out. Oh well, I just just shipped out some new books today that will get them. I do like how the label isn't stark white like some of the prelims we saw.

I liked the white ones. But can't have it all - a true upgrade from the rivets! Thanks, guys.

A good upgrade from the current label, but still not as good as the ones before the change. I do like these better but still need work for that "crisp" "sharp" look.

Really fantastic - I think it's pretty impressive in terms of soliciting, listening and responding to community feedback. You can't make everyone happy, but you've done a great job of trying and it shows.

This new label is very nice although we all know that not everyone will be pleased. I just want my current submissions slabbed and labeled with this new label!

@SpiderTim I remember when they switched from the original label to the current ones that they did it with no notice to the coustomers, i did ask Steve when they are rolling the new labels out. I hope he will chime in here shortly and say when, I have books that are arriving tomarow and i hope they have the new labels on them. They did sit in QC for a long while. So i am praying that they are the new labels.

It's not as riveting as the old, new label, but I like it. Nice work.

Ive been lazy about putting together a new stack of books to send in for grading. A new label to check out is the motivation I needed. Will start going through books tonight.

"Riveting." I see what you did there.

According to the email they say book currently going into slabbing will receive the new label and I am crossing my fingers that my books that were just graded will receive the new label!

The detailed comic book info is WAY too close to the number grade. Especially weird considering you have a ton of room on the label you could have used to let the various elements breathe. But nevertheless... far in a way better than that riveted monstrosity of typefaces you released with no outside input last year.

Just saw the video on YouTube and have to say i love it. It clean, crisp, and love the holo logo. Makes the case pop and very eye catching. Great job CBCs and Steve for going the extra mile and listening to you fans.👍

Probably by the end of the week.
Anything that goes into slab starting tomorrow morning will have the new label. We flipped the switch to turn them on when we walked out at the end of the day today.

Incidentally, guys. I just want to say that the labels look nice in the pictures and video, but just wait until you get them in your hands. They're incredible.

When the labels were delivered to us from the printer, the collective comment through the office was "WOW!"

I can't wait for these to start getting into your mailbox. They'll blow you away.

Along with the integrity and transparency of your company, it's your communication and listening to your client base that sets you guys apart from your competitors. Well done!!!
