CBCS Pressing Update11521

Collector Triplecdad private msg quote post Address this user
I have learned some lessons about sending in books to be graded as I have only done so once before. Sent in 8 books end of March, and realize I should have had them pressed. Called customer service today and was told it was too late, that I could not change the order. First, is that true? It says on the dashboard that my books are still in processing. Jeff at customer service said I was in the "middle" of the process, so no changes. Also, I believe I read somewhere on this forum that if I have CBCS graded books, I can send them in and Mr. Ricketts will review them to see if he believes pressing might improve the grade, and if not they will not crack the slab. Is that true? Is that "press screen?"

know what's funny in a I want to cry sort of way??

Feb will be done which means shortly after they will be done grading too..by then I will have Oct, Nov and then Feb books all in 'ShipToCanada' status since there is a better chance than not that I will have gotten zero of my books back before Feb is graded.

Starting week 11 in ShipToCanada for my October order and week 8/9 for the November one....could have walked it here faster

On the one hand, if that's what the representative said it sure seems like it should be true, no? On the other hand, sometimes customer service people make mistakes. I suppose you could try asking another customer service rep and see if you get a different answer. It has been nearly two months for your order, so even if it's still just in the queue I could understand how CBCS might not want to mess with the order of things.

Yes, that's press screen.

@stevericketts my order says that it has been delivered according to the post office but it still just shows up as submitted online. It's supposed to go to pressing first can you tell me if this order is in-house the physical books are there? 21-1957C9D

@Bobsaget If it says it was delivered, it is here. We are 4 or 5 weeks behind on getting books received, so it may take a while for them to show up in the system.

I recently received a pressing order back. It was my first time using CBCS pressing. The results were amazing. 4 x 9.8 grades and 2 x 9.6 grades on my 6 Silver Surfer books. I had pre-graded the books at 3 x 9.6, 9.4, 9.0, 8.5. With the last 2 books the major flaws (waviness and non-color breaking bends) were completely eliminated. @stevericketts very impressed with your work. Thank you.

@stevericketts wouldn't happen to know the status of March submissions would you? Got an email back in April that my books were in the pressing area and haven't seen an update since. Dashboard also isn't updated nor the PDF invoice when I check it.

@SteveRicketts I have a quick question regarding press screening.

I have a multi-tier order in now that earlier this week ticked past 15 weeks from the date it was delivered. Most of the books in it were flagged for press screening (all but one that, with a moderate spine roll and several creases that didn't break color, was an obvious pressing candidate). Never done press screening before, so just curious if I should expect y'all to contact me regarding which ones need pressing and what the additional cost will be, or if they'll just be sent through and a charge will appear on my card. I'm very curious to know which ones will benefit from pressing.

The order number is 21-0B83D3B, if that helps at all.

@CatCovers my personal experience has been the latter, and frequently I'm not billed until the order is completed.

@CatCovers You will be charged for the books that were pressed just before your order ships. Your books have been pressed and are in the queue for grading.
