Also, i think the clock starts ticking from when the actually check them in, not when they are delivered. I am thinking you are still within their 6 week TAT estimate at this point.

That's correct. So if the comics were delivered on July 30th, they may not have been marked as "Received/Processing" until August 3rd, which would be the official start time for the TAT. And at the current 6wk lead time, we're still on schedule.

Current submission, 16 modern books:

Invoice Date: 7/8
Delivered to CBCS: 9/3
Received by CBCS: 9/8

Gap between the invoice date and the delivery was due to third party pressing (thanks @CFP_Comics!). It looks like a long time between delivery and receiving but that was the holiday weekend, in actuality it was 2 business days which is fairly standard I think.

Clock has started on grading, and I do have 2 verified signatures in the mix, so I'm expecting them to ship back around 10/20 at this point.

September 1st: Still in labels as of today, but I can see what comics were rejected and which ones passed the grade screen. There is still the excitement of seeing if I got any 9.9s or 10s
Six week turnaround is September 10th so hopefully I'll get the books around then.


September 9th: Still in labels after two weeks

Mine literally shipped on the 6th week right to the day. So they like to cut it close....

So I sent 8 books for vsp, does it take a week per sig or per book? Or per order to affect TAT?

IIRC, it adds an additional two weeks to the TAT total. That's how my order with 4 books for VSP was treated; it's not per book or per sig.

For anyone that has gotten books back, how are the new cases? I hear it a big improvement.

Love the new cases and the label/top label changes. Easier to read. Cleaner sides allow for better view of spine and page opening. No more "Clip Cracks". Sturdier feel. Cleaner look.

To paraphrase a popular 70's icon, They're GRRRRRRRREAT!

The 8 books I sent in that were received on July 30th have been in the โ€œgradingโ€ phase for a week now. Is that normal? Itโ€™s been over six weeks now๐Ÿ˜‘

@JosephSMASH That is not out of the ordinary. The estimated turnaround time is not meant to be exact. Books can take more or less time depending on a few things but the fact that they are in grading means itโ€™s nearing the end

My invoice was just marked off as fast press so I'm hoping things are moving faster.

I have a reholder submission in that is taking a lot longer than I would have thought (received on 8/28). Makes me nervous that a book went back for grading. ๐Ÿ˜•

I don't see anywhere that lists reholders as quicker than the standard TAT, which is currently 5-6wks. I think you're fine.

Their main site says 2-3 weeks for reholders.

So it does! Thanks for that. I still think you're fine; they could be backed up a bit more than normal. Would be helpful for more updates from CBCS though.

@kon_jelly - There are a lot of re-holders going in for the new style holders and VSP labels, so fear not, the CBCS is with you.

Fear leads to cgc, cgc leads to hate, hate leads to pgx...

Update on my reholder order - went into shipping yesterday. That's 3.5 weeks from the day it was received, so they're running just past their stated turn around times listed on the website.

@kon_jelly From the date that they received the shipment or the date CBCS checked it in and marked as "Received"?

@kon_jelly the official turn around time starts the next business day after CBCS receives it in the mail. If you submit at a con, it is the Wednesday after the con ends.

Dang, they're (15 modern, no pressing) now in grading. That was quicker than I thought.
