Well you do have to subtract the time the offices were closed because of covid; and also consider they moved pressing which is supposed to have helped TAT. So if you send in comics soon it is likely not going to be that long.

You can also add fast press, although that might be pricey with 50 books.

I sent in books at a con July 2020. How long should it take to be received in the dashboard? And if it's 8 months now for pressing how much can be shaved off since this is a new submission? I realize the second question may not be answerable.

@Bobsaget I've never submitted at a con but my books were delivered by Fedex to CBCS on Tuesday and they were marked in the system as received by the end of the business day Thursday. I don't think there's been an official update to the pressing turnaround times.

@enaz13 Pressing never shut down due to Covid so they only closed briefly during the move.

@agamoto People are waiting closer to 10 months (they are currently on books received October/November of last year). I would not recommend sending books in to CBCS pressing at this time. They are taking steps to improve and hopefully get turnaround times down to a reasonable level in about two months. I suggest waiting until then to see if turnaround times improve.

@Bobsaget Submissions received at a convention could take a week or more to appear on your dashboard depending on how busy they are. Regardless of when they appear however, for purposes of calculating your turnaround time they are backdated to the Wednesday after the end of the convention.

I wouldn’t count on “new submissions” being much quicker in regards to pressing. As I mentioned above, they are currently on books from October/November so there are a lot of people still ahead of you.

@Bobsaget CBCS was at a con in July? Or did you turn them in to a dealer?

@xkonk yes they were in Huntsville Alabama July 18&19 and that's when I gave them my books. Still not in dashboard hopefully next week they'll show up.

It does seem a little long to not be in your dashboard yet but not ridiculously long. Hopefully whoever was manning the booth didn't come down with con crud or something.

I submitted some books to CFP per dielinfinite's recommendation. Looks like they're pressing books received the first week of June. Mine arrived first week of July. Hopefully they get to my order soon, but it certainly seems better than the 9+ month backlog with CBCS. But I'll reserve judgement until my books come back.

Joe @CFP_Comics does not update his TAT that often. I would suspect he is already doing early July now
