CBCS Pressing Jesse_O 618 2 daysSteveRicketts (7842): @xkonk is correct. Sigs are not generally a problem, though there are exceptions.

  CBCS FAQ Jesse_O 1 2 yearsJesse_O (8649): What does a checkmark (asterisk online) by the grade mean? In rare cases, a comic book will look much better than the given grade. In these rare cases, a Check Mark will be placed on the label by the numerical grade. The best way to understand why a specific comic book received a Check Mark designation is to refer to the graders' notes. Example: a comic is graded 8.0. However, the covers are such that it looks like a 8.5 or a 9.0. CBCS...

Graham Crackers Comics Jesse_O 3 3 hoursStudley_Dudley (4996): I've been using GCC since 2014 for my new comics. Any time I've had a problem, they've always been quick to offer a solution. I really like them. Glad it worked out for you, @Jesse_O!
New Original Art, commissions, sketch covers thread Jesse_O 158 3 hoursJesse_O (8649): @xkonk I'm thinking about doing that with the Frankenstein Monster piece. But the max size for the ART program is 10.25 inches tall by 7.25 inches wide. That would effect the art if I trimmed this piece. @Bronte Yep, I noticed that, but it's a great style!! I wasn't aware that they made a rotating frame like that. And Thanks!!!

Packages have already been mailed to Florida, California, Texas, and New Jersey and they are expected to be delivered this Monday. I will be mailing out another package on Monday, and I am also holding some comics for a few other people too. What do I do with the unsold comics, you ask? Well once I decide to remove a comic from my collection to sell it, it is “awkward” to put it back. So here’s...
Anyone watching the umbrella academy Batman66 8 8 hoursIronMan (2937): I'm in the same place. Two episodes in, not sure if I like it or not. Large doses of family angst and relationship problems, special abilities of several not yet clearly laid out. Basically it's pretty boring up to this point. I'll watch a few more episodes to see if it grows on me or gets more to my liking. But I don't really LIKE having to do that. There is other stuff to watch, I shouldn't have to slog thru hours and hours of "bleh".

So, why CBCS? mediaslave 70 18 hoursCatmanAmerica (11865): The simplest response to the ultimate question posed in this thread is the best: Why not? So, what does CGC have to offer that CBCS doesn't? Well, CGC has random Newton Rings, but devised a fix ...well, sorta... to reduce unpredictable prism effects: ...under-surface scuffing changes splotchy mylar and polycarbonate contact to something altogether different. ;) CGC labels have an oversized bleach-white grade box with jet-black...

"Marvel" Labels Nuffsaid111 26 2 daysjgzachary13 (141): Have any of you framed comics? When you bring contrast and color to the framing, you accent the comic (or painting/picture). Yellow helps a signature series label pop. I have seen some colored stands that match the comic to add flavor when displaying the comic. If you love the artistic work (in addition to the content), why wouldn’t you enjoy adding something to accent the beauty of the comic and artwork?

Looking for the owner of a graded comic we incorrectly received... LostComic 17 2 daysCaptainCanuck (2005): @shrewbeer Sounds as though @LostComic is sending the book back to the comic store that shipped it out. They should be able to re-ship to the correct address.
Weekly Contest voting thread Jesse_O 21 2 daysJesse_O (8649): @shrewbeer If this were an official election or if there was some kind of money at stake, I'd agree with all that oversight. But it's not. It's a comic book cover contest. If Russia wants to manipulate the outcome - let them. This is all in fun, let's not get legalistic about it. If someone only wants to vote three hearts for one cover, so be it. Relax, this contest is for grins and giggles. @OGJackster Don't worry, we're not giving out second...
Store Stamps on Comics Chino24 8 2 daysChino24 (47): @TellEmSteveDave That's awesome. That's the one thing I like about the stamps - they kind of help tell you the history behind that specific book you have. Who would have thought it would begin in Rochester, New York and wind up in Oklahoma after all of these years? I think that's cool.
