CBCS Pressing SteveRicketts private msg quote post Address this user
We appreciate the feedback and concern that has been raised about the security of the CBCS slab. While we cannot prevent nefarious individuals from attempting to defraud people, we can certainly make it as hard as possible for them to do so.

Over the last few weeks we have been testing different ideas to arrive at the best solution. Our goal was to prevent the CBCS label from being removed without showing obvious signs of damage. This would eliminate the ability for labels to be switched. We have determined that the answer lies in the holofoil CBCS logo.

Effective immediately, CBCS will be placing a seal through the holofoil CBCS logo. The reason for this is that when the label is removed, it will peel off a portion of the CBCS logo making the tampering extremely obvious.

As always, we thank you all for your support of CBCS.

An image of the new seal is below...

Steve simple, effective and more confidence inspiring for those who questioned the smaller "seal overlap" you were doing already. This will be unquestionably more tamper evident now.

That is great that shield is more then just a shiny decal, now it actually is a security feature. That is a A+ on your part CBCS.

One more thing are you guys looking at anything for the outer shell also?

@SteveRicketts - can you guys do a discount for reholders like you did when you changed the labels last year? Obviously this change is a good one and preferable to cases that came before. Thanks.
