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...

We are currently pressing early October orders. We are about two weeks behind our projections because the October pressing promotion was a huge success. We'll start catching up again after we get past the October orders.

So the orders BEFORE the October promotion were set aside for the October Submissions? that is counter to what customer support told me via email. But evidence shows my 9/5 submission isn't in pressing.

All regular tier orders received before the October promotion have been pressed. Your order is currently in the grading room.

yeah..so the notifications aren't up to date - anyone who is waiting don't sweat it.

My books completed the grading process in 1 day...now going into the CBCS case and I'm sure will ship shortly after.

This order I sent through CBCS US not CBCS Canada as the Canadian location was close in August...it has since re-opened, moved locations and with the latest emergency stay at home order I'm not 100% sure it is currently open!!! at least this way this order will make it back home fairly quick....although more $$ and I'll likely have to fight with FedEx over brokerage fees

can't wait for grades!!
Mister Miracle #1 x3 all should be between 6.5 and 7.5
Forever People #1 x2 - both 8ish??
Brave and the Bold #61 - 9ish??
Tomb of Dracula #12 (2nd Blade) again in 9ish

We'll see what the pressing was able to help!

Wow..Aug 29th order now ready to be shipped.

Like I said...the updates are obviously not in time with the real activities.
Otherwise I went from Grading, to Case, to Ship in less than 48 hours

IIIIII don't knowwwww....have to check the fine print but I'm pretty sure the Promo was 12 weeks for pressing. Maybe terms and conditions in small print it said in a reallly fast voice that actual times may very, and side affects of pressing may include but are not limited to: bleeding sores, hemorrhoids, ulcers, loss of hair, growth of hair, temporary blindness, vampirism etc. etc.........

@KatKomics one I sent basically at the same time (received three days earlier) went into pressing 10 days ago. Probably dumb luck. I used my membership coupons on fast pass for that one so I'm hoping it magically flies through grading and straight to shipped at some point

@xkonk did you mean entered into grading pal or pressing? I used the October promo which would have arrived late Oct/early Nov and got the pressing notification 24th Nov. Im still awaiting any further movement for grading but thats a big difference in time for the same promotion.

I have to keep reminding myself that the updates are likely not in line with the actual physical state of the book.
My August order was stuck in pressing forever and then in less than 48hrs flew through grading and encapsulation and now sits in shipping - really want that puppy to ship so I can see my grades!!

@rtdcomics the email I got said 'moved into the pressing area'. Although I agree with the post @KatKomics has above. I sent a more recent order and simultaneously got the 'received' and 'entered pressing' emails for it. I don't think it's actually in pressing. I think my October order is probably being pressed now.

Were your comics actually pressed in November? What tier were they?

Collector rtdcomics private msg quote post Address this user
@xkonk I agree the notifications are all over the place. Have been for a while.

I had the pressed notification 24th November and, I may be wrong, but Im sure when clicking through the invoice it backed this up. It then reverted back to the initial status of received and I haven't had an update since. The way I understood this promo was it was 12 weeks and books would be back. I'm hoping its not 12 week for pressing and then back into the system for grading.

There were 2 for verification so expected a week to be added but all were modern standard tier.

@rtdcomics it's 100% 12 weeks for pressing only. Expect another 8-10 or wherever they're at now for grading.

My order received on Dec 29th just went to grading. It's a 2-Day and a Rapid with pressing, so the faster-tier pressing seems on time.

my press broke!! while I wait to get another I'm going to submit a small order for pressing to see how the pros do. Is fast pass pressing worth doing at this point? TAT?

If time is money then fast press. If you can wait, I think it is in line with competition norms now.
