Pressing Signed Comics12474

Hi, just wondering if pressing comics that have already been signed is an option and if so, are there any risks of the signatures/book being damaged in the process. Any input would be greatly appreciated. I'm potentially looking to have several signed books pressed and signature verification.

The answer is “Yes”. As to the signature/book being damaged that’s always a possibility based on the skill and experience of the presser and the specific condition of the book(chipping, loose staple, etc.).

It's 100% doable, and isn't a risk at all as long as the presser knows what they're doing. I've had CBCS press signed comics and I know other folks here have had other pressers do it as well.

I've had all my signature books pressed (both witnessed and verified) through CBCS and have never had an issue

I had two books CBCS declined pressing due to the type of pen used during signing.
It was a metallic silver ink more popular in the 90s.

No paint markers

I think the reason for no paint markers or metallic markers is not only because of the pressing process but also when encapsulated the ink pressed against the plastic sleeve could be problematic.

They passed VSP and were encapsulated, just no pressing. I've seen new signatures with metallic markers smear though. My sigs had been sitting for 23 years!
