Thank you. I have one last question. If I have fast pass on the grading, do I have to also pay fast pass on the pressing as well?

So if I have a modern book, and I'm a bronze member, I pay $16 for grading, $9 for fast pass, $12 for pressing, and ANOTHER $6 for fast pass on the pressing? So $41 for a modern book from start to finish?


Actually, no. You can add Fast Pass to the pressing or the grading only. Just make sure you write those instructions on the order clearly.


But then that makes fast pass basically not as valuable as it should be. Have you ever heard the saying, "Hurry up and wait?"

I would be paying extra to get my book moved up in line to get pressed, only to have to wait forever for it to get graded and slabbed, or wait forever for it to get pressed and moved to the front of the line to get graded.


It's just an option for those who want to use it. I agree with you, if you're in enough of a hurry to want fast pass on one, I'd think you'd want it on the other. But that's just me.


I called customer service today to ask questions about a few things and brought this up, and they said you can get fast pass grading and fast pass pressing on the same book. You guys might want to coordinate things, they gave a different answer than you did.

@Lewdog Yes, you can. I never said otherwise. You can also get it on one without getting it on the other, which was what I said as I thought that was the question.

Looking back, I realize the question was about the fee. There is a separate fee for fast pass on pressing and grading.

I'm so confused. This is what you said:

"Actually, no. You can add Fast Pass to the pressing or the grading only. Just make sure you write those instructions on the order clearly."

You said, "to the pressing 'or' the grading only. That's where I got the part where you said fast pass could only be put on one or the other.

Yeah, I wasn't very clear and misunderstood what the actual question was.
You have the correct answer now, though.

Steve when are you guys going to get a Flash pay, cause fast pay seem to be kind double dipping on the price, because if most people are like me they would like to have the option to have a mode that does not charge me twice to get a book through fast, but i would not mind if it was a little more expensive than the fast pass but not double. hummm or is that just ask a living dinosaur for a tooth?

Any update when they will be adding pressing to the checkout?

Have a few books I want to get pressed and slabbed waiting for the checkout to finally get sorted.

I'm waiting for the same thing GDa... seems like a simple thing to add to the Web form, so I'm not sure what's holding it up.

Average wait time when getting books pressed and graded is 5-6 months? Just trying to set expectations.

That sounds about right, I submitted books to be pressed at Baltimore Comic-Con (around Sept 22nd). Received notification that they moved from pressing to grading on 2/16 and were shipped out on 2/21.

I expected them to take longer in grading but definitely not complaining.
