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".

@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!

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.


Adding an additional data point.

Received this today, 18 May 21: "Your [Order Number] is graded and now it is time to get the comics into a CBCS case! Your tier has entered the production area of the company and will only be here a short time before it ships out!

Again, you can check the status of your order any time on your dashboard at https://www.cbcscomics.com/account and log into your account. Once you are logged in on your dashboard you can view the status on any order by clicking on its link."

Thought of the day:

Continuing, every day, to look at the invoice once in "Labels" can be hazardous to one's own health by week #3.

I finally figured out the delay behind "ShipToCanada". I was reading it all wrong! "ShipToCanada" must mean that they have put our books on a literal SHIP to Canada. Dear CBCS, in the future, rather than have our books traverse the mighty seas for months on end, it might help to know that those books can travel by ground. As luck would have it, Texas and Canada share a continent.

Order rec'd Nov. 6th: Pressing, Grading Production completed March 10th

ShipToCanada March 11th: Gulf of Mexico, Panama Canal, Pacific Ocean, Stop in Australia to dry off, Indian Ocean, current whereabouts unknown. Possibly closing in on the Atlantic... (2 months, 1 week and counting).

Wow, is this true? I believe I was told my books were received a month after yours. (17 books through pressing and 1 VCS) Still sitting at “processing”. From the last message I got a response on, I was told it is in line to the grading stage.

No updates yet

Well, that should work in MY favor because I live in Halifax, NS, which is a port city (second deepest year-round ice-free harbour second only to Japan)

Did you send it to Oakville?
If Yes then, they sometimes send an email saying it was received there, look for an email from Steve Paulus.

My most recent order it took 10 weeks to get the confirmation email from Dallas. I know it's agony waiting to know if you just sent you books into the abyss or received on the other end.

10 Weeks!!? Crikey! I could get it to China quicker

It went to Oakville via registered mail. Nothing from Steve Paulus, but if they don't open the packages until Dallas that's understandable.

Mostly concerned I did something wrong - packaged things wrong, or missed something I should've put on the box that would lead to the contents being misplaced or damaged. ..or Canada Post handed it to the janitor. If this first submission makes it to received I'll breathe easy.
