Scifinator is right, the TAT starts when they open the box.

@Weaponx606 - And, keep in mind, that although it was 18 days before CBCS updated your dashboard, they actually “opened” your submission right after receipt. So, processing actually started before staff updated the dashboard.

Understood, unfortunately that info doesn’t hit the dashboard so it’s a bit vague. My “personal” TAT clock doesn’t start until I get charged, that way I don’t get overly anxious until the posted TAT hits my charge date.

Woohoo! My "Holiday 2020" submission went from received to grading, I'm assuming it hit pressing somewhere in between. I really want my Star Wars #2 back.

My eyes are escaping me, but did I see someone post that their books have been in "Labels" for several weeks?
My order is now pushing over 2 weeks in "Labels" and that would be a 1st for me.
So just looking for guidance/other's experiences if 2+ weeks is "normal" these days to be sitting in "Labels"?

I’ll be gathering more books for another CBCS submission shortly!


What was the 'status' prior to processing?

Status on my dashboard prior to the PROCESSING status update was SUBMITTED which was there the day I checked out my online submission.

Nothing has updated on my dashboard, but I did receive an email that 2 of my orders have moved to pressing. One of them was the non FastPass order, and one was one of the FastPass orders. The other FastPass order doesn't have pressing on it, so we'll see what happens there.

Well I am seeing people say it's taking 13-14 weeks for their orders

That means only 3-4 weeks to get my reholder back. Currently 10 weeks in and 2 weeks after I was told it would ship out shortly.

Yes, I have an invoice stuck in ShipToCanada and I received it 2 months ago.


if you message one of the moderators they should be able to kick it out of ShipToCanada and get your grades/notes etc. to show


It looks like "ShipToCanada" also involves a month long stop-over at Zenn-La.

Hi, all. First post here - just wanted to add a data point and ask a question.

Order Received Email: 24 FEB 21
Order Changed From Processing to Grading: 17 May 21
Invoice has read "Labels" for about 3/4 weeks now, so: Labels ~26 April 21.

No clue what "Labels" means - any ideas? Thanks!

Order Type: 13 Modern Books, 7 of which requesting signature verification. No Pressing/Cleaning.

Welcome!!

I believe Labels means the labels are being printed and placed in your slab. It's the last step before Shipping.

Very cool, thank you - hopefully soon then!

I imagine I can't read any Grader's notes or see any grades until the labels are affixed and shipped?

Just thought I would add a post about my experience so far of my 8 books with pressing, and one signature verification:

Received: 02/26/21
Pressing tier CN: 03/09/21
Pressing tier MD: 03/18/21

No email updates since then. Checking order status today (05/17/21) shows "Processing".

@moh Click the invoice link, you'll get a better look at your order status. Welcome to the forum!

@MalacorV - Welcome to the forum.

Most typically of recent, labels is the last update to the dashboard before the the submission is shipped.

However, under less busy times, you may also see:

“Encasement”
“Seal”
and
“Shipping”
before the final entry of...

“Completed”.

Once completed, then you should be abel to see the grades and grading notes for each comic.

Cheers.

Timeline Update:
(my order is no rush, no fast, no press, no nothing, just regular collector paying normal fees, cause I want some PC books to look pretty on my walls)
Finally got my order to processing So about 2 and a half weeks after they arrived, the books begin the 'inside cbcs' journey.

0) Shipped 4/26
1) USPS shows delivered to individual on 4/29
2) CBCS updated status to 'Processing' from 'Submitted' on 5/17
3) ???


I feel relieved, now I know they are safe and sound. But prior to that, we're all thinking like, did USPS screw me, did they deliver to the right place, is cbcs looking at them with malcontent during smoke breaks, who do I need to kill to know they got to the right place, etc?

@felnora - Actually, the journey started shortly after they were dropped off. Just took 2 1/2 weeks for your dashboard to be updated.

Cheers to you!
