@DrWatson If you’re referring to his pressing update thread, that mentioned that they were planning updates to their pressing operation that were put on hold due to the virus but no specifics were given; he certainly didn’t mention anything about moving to Dallas

probably still need to expand the pressing capabilities. Moving closer will cut time out of the TAT though..min a couple of days to a week....max like two weeks???

Steve described it as a “major planned update” so I suspect the move isn’t the only step they are taking. I just hope the move goes smoother than when grading moved to Texas because that was a

It only makes sense that they would move to Dallas. Having everything under one roof will inevitably streamline the process.

@dielinfinite @KatKomics @DrWatson - Move to Dallas was part of what both Steve (El Pancakador) Ricketts & Steve (Chief Almighty Comic Kahuna) Borock were referring to in the Press post and recent interviews respectively. And, yes there will be expansion of the press operation.

Cheers and good health to all CBCS crew and forum contributors!

And streamlining the process will probably increase the demand for pressing.

Not only does it make sense, it's about damn time.

CBCS Pressing SteveRicketts private msg quote post Address this user
My apologies to everyone in the way the info has been made available. We were going to make a formal announcement at the same time our website dropped the info. I assume the info on the website was triggered on a certain date and time. We're uncertain of the timeline right now because of the goings-on in the world. As soon as we can confirm dates, there will be a formal announcement made by the main office.

However, I will share what details I can at this time.

Yes, CBCS Pressing is moving to the Dallas office. Yes, I will be moving to Dallas. Yes, there will be additional equipment and people to operate the equipment. And finally; yes, we are doing this in an effort to cut our turnaround time to be as minimal as possible. Due to the move (and the "goings-on" ) I do anticipate the turnaround will get worse before it gets better, just know we are going to attempt to do this with as little of a disruption to turnaround as possible.

The demand for pressing has simply outgrown the facility we have in Florida, and moving it to Dallas is what we need to do to get it turned around.

Thank you all for your continued support. It is very appreciated.

I mean, it makes sense, as Texas is a much larger state than Florida, and your pressing outgrowing Florida....Congrats and good luck with the move and godspeed.

So glad to have @Stevericketts moving to Texas! He is not just a great presser, but also a fantastic friend!

@Scifinator haha just watched that during a couple weeks ago. I could've sworn it was Taco Bell the first time I watched when it was released but the version I saw recently was Pizza Hut.
