I have to trust them, I don't own a grading or pressing company. I understand I am very small in a company's eyes, I am one person, not a big spending customer, just a guy who wants to do his best, but I am not Heritage or a big seller. I really thought this would be a better outcome, though the story has not ended, at least I hope not. It is not under my control at all.

@SteveRicketts Can I have a link to the pressing option? I have one book that has just a slight crease in the back. I want to get that pressed as I am certain the book will go up .2 and an express expedited slab.

Thank you. I email CBCS. If there was a reply, it went to my junk mail.

I think not having 'pressing' on the invoices is REALLY causing confusion for the staff as well.

I have two orders that were subbed together at a con, everything was handled at the booth. Both of the orders have sigs and both were going for press. One of the orders that was supposed to be pressed got marked as 'grading' yesterday. Normally I wouldn't worry but that would put me like 2 months ahead of TAT... so i knew something was up. After I talked to customer service, I guess that order just got skipped over when it came to sending it through pressing? I'm charged for it, and it shows up on the website in my dashboard, BUT there is zero mention on the actual invoices. Only the additional charges for pressing.

Thanks to customer service for hopefully getting it straightened out and back on the right track, but I would have really hated to see that order come back to me without pressing. It was already on its way into grading and is still marked as such. I STRONGLY feel that if I had not called, I would have been charged for the pressing service and not received it. A handful of yellow sigs not reaching their full potential!

I'm totally ok with the TAT's! I also understand things happen, BUT this kind of oversight is SCARY to me as a consumer!

Crossing my fingers that it all works out in the end..

That is really scary. Is there a way to even prove when a comic is actually pressed.

@SteveRicketts I was fortunate enough to come across this beauty the other day, Batman #62! The pages are beautiful and may grade at White but my question is would this book benefit from a clean and press? The book is not brittle, attached at the staples and complete. Should I just send it in to be graded as is or would a press help the presentation, if possible? The book is for my PC...

I sent books through an LCS, which some of the books on the order needed to be pressed (not mine) and they have yet to be pressed. They are holding up the whole order and was told it will take another 6-8 weeks.
