CBCS Pressing Update11521

Collector Nuffsaid111 private msg quote post Address this user
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?

Nope... 4 books from late 80s. Regular, $5 books each (nightcrawler limited series)

Thanks! I'll believe it though when I see it. At the moment I'm convinced this is a glitch of some sort.

An order of mine that was just marked received today was also marked as going into pressing. Maybe they've just changed the email system to say they've gone to pressing when books get pressed?

@GAC did you use the October promotion?

The rest of the submissions would start moving through January (or faster, if the gods smile on us and the pressers).

Patiently but anxiously waiting for status to change from Processing to Pressing.

You won't see a Pressing status...it'll go right Grading.

@GAC Wow didn't know that. So instead of status change to pressing do you get an email indicating the comics entered Pressing?

I don't believe so. The first indication of Progress to your submission after Received is Grading.

I got an email a couple days ago that my December sub was received and is moving to pressing. Status is showing “processing”. This is my fast press and fast pass sub. My September sub is still showing received.

Fast press/Pass? If not, I will be upset my September order hasn't made it there yet.

@Blair1999 can't remember but I think the October promo guaranteed 12 week turn around for pressing.

Yeah, I actually emailed them about just that back when that promo was released, and they told me mine would be processed before the promos (I assume they mean, they would ramp up the process to make sure the promos made their guarantee date)...

Buttttt... starting to wonder about that.

What he said. Also, it's "entered the processing area". I don't know when it will actually be pressed and then sent on to grading. And if you look a little earlier in the thread, I got the same email for an order that was received that same day (I got the received and 'in pressing' emails back to back), so it's possible the emails are a little flaky.

My first time through the system, I am sure it will be "easier" once I get comfortable with it... but my babies been gone for too long. LOL

I think my first submission (maybe it was my second) was during the big hurricane slowdown. It helped to adjust expectations going forward. It also helps that I'm not flipping anything and in a rush.

Just received an email that my order was received and sent to pressing. It was a 2-day modern with fast press/pass. Mailed out Jan 8, delivered yesterday. It is a pretty high value book.

They received mine on Sept 5, 2020 hopefully the status will change this month, if not it has to change in February. Starting to check if status changed once a week now. Starting to feel the pain.

Still weary about the October promo stated 12 week pressing TAT...if mine were received Oct 15th...then they should be done pressing by now...no?? was it 12 weeks and done pressing...or 12 weeks and into pressing?? either way they should either be done or at least starting the pressing process...no updates though...
