Am I wrong, I thought everything in pressing BEFORE the promo was to get completed before the promo books, (Here's betting I misread it)

One would hope (especially if they had an order in before the promo) that would be the case. I was just trying to point out that there would be pressure one way or another, and at least some October books should be done well before February.

Probably a dumb question but when I had customer service add Fast Press to my existing invoice, did I get bumped to the back of the line? Or, how is an upgrade like this handled internally?

I know this might have been asked recently- but what is "fast press" running at these days- I just submitted a book for sig verification and fast press and utilized the "crystal Clear" promotion

12 week TAT would be January 23rd not December 23rd. For a moment you had my hopes up because that was when I sent mine in. It is still showing received after 5+ weeks.

I sent a 2nd order in at the same time with the vintage promotion hoping to get them before Christmas and it is also still at received after 5+ weeks.

@Trixster crud, you're right. I must have started counting from the end of September, not October. That said, people who used the promotion right at the beginning of the month should hit 12 weeks soon. If you were marked received on October 5th (probably about the earliest possible, since you had to hear about the promotion and get something to Dallas), 12 weeks will be December 28th. The rest of the submissions would start moving through January (or faster, if the gods smile on us and the pressers).

So do we think that if you had something on the table BEFORE the promo, you are going to be set aside for the people who dialed up for the promo? I hope not...

@Blair1999 I would assume not as well but we'll only really know if people start complaining. Then again, people already complain about being jumped even though I don't think it happens.

guess I'll find out first hand. I have August and October (and November) orders. We'll see if the October one manages to jump the August with the 12 week promo!!

@Bobsaget July and August are pressed. They should pop into grading soon. The holidays over the next few weeks may slow the progress down a little, but it won't be much longer.

Soooo.... just got an email that my order has entered into the Pressing area of CBCS.
I've gotten so lost with TAT's.
What, approximately, am I looking at for shipment of the 4 comics?

@Nuffsaid111 I assume that means you've already waited the 16 weeks or whatever since your order was received? Actual pressing time should be relatively short, and then you have to wait for the grading TAT. I think the last update for moderns was ~10 weeks.

Just for tracking: an order I sent in was marked received and I also immediately got an email that it was in the pressing area. It's a 2-Day and a Rapid, so that's listed at 3-5 weeks right now.

@xkonk The receipt date is Dec 3rd on my Dashboard. This is kinda why I was shocked (to say the least) about getting an email indicating the comics entered Pressing. I did not do fast pass or fast press, or fast anything.

@Nuffsaid111 that does sound fast. Are they higher-tier books?
