I have two books in for pressing, my hulk 180 and iron fist #1. Sorry if this question has been answered already. Will my dashboard say that they are in pressing or will it just go from received status to grading?

@Kaleljll they have not added pressing into the dashboard software yet, so they won't change until they leave pressing.

I just posted a before and after video on the CBCS Pressing Facebook page. They really down-sampled the quality. I may upload it to YouTube and link it to the Facebook page next time.

Anyway, here's the link...

Thanks @SteveRicketts! Awesome video and the quality wasn't as bad as I expected from reading your post but I agree that Youtube would probably be the better option in the future. Appreciate the inside look at your pancakes!

@SteveRicketts Any estimate on how many weeks it is currently taking for submissions to get pressed and passed over to grading? I have a submission that includes pressing that was received on April 17 and still shows as "Receiving". That's 12 weeks. Thanks in advance.

Hey guys. I'm currently pressing books from April 4-5th.

@Mr_adam_R you order has already been pressed.
@Lonestar I hope to have yours done in the next week or so.

I'll be adding the turnaround for pressing on the weekly updates starting next week.

@SteveRicketts Thanks for the work on my Seven to Eternity Variant! I wasn't sure if it needed pressing but when I talked to my LCS he said... "I dunno... they might be able to get it out...but you're probably looking at a 9.4 or 9.6..." Shows him! Thanks!

That's wasn't the easiest book I've worked on, but I got it.
Glad it got the 9.8.
I wish I had time to follow up on every order I press, but sometimes it's like a blur.

Thanks for the response and the news. Excited to see how they all come back. Great news that you will be adding the turnaround times to the updates.

No, none of this will appear. The graders will not know that the books have been pressed prior to being graded

@Pacoma7623 when pressing is done properly it's undetectable by graders, and they are not told any information about what books are pressed.

I guess it's better to inquire here, I asked on the fb site & everyone thinks you're ticked off. If I was mad, I would use the other guys, but I like cbcs. I've never used a professional pressing service and I don't sell, everything I submit I keep or if I don't like it, will give away. I've heard pressing adds a month or so to the current 12 week waiting period. I'd rather have it done correctly and well, I hate submitting high end books and wondering "what if I got it pressed?".

Also, are the pressing notes ever available? It would be fantastic to see what was and what was not able to be improved. Some of my current submission is older books, so that would be a plus, although Mr. Ricketts might never get anything done if he added that service. Moreso a question from a newer submitter to the pressing game. Thanks!
