@SteveRicketts was curious if 21-1BEAA23 had made it to pressing yet? Had it with Fast Press so hoping it is/has.

@SteveRicketts I only have the pink copies of the invoices that were given to me when I submitted the books. There are no numbers or identifiers on these invoices.

@TScomics1 Receiving is still working on books submitted in mid July. Once they get your order checked in, they'll give them directly to us and they'll get moved into the proper place in our queue based on when you submitted them.

@Blair1999 We are just now starting July Fast Pass orders. You're almost there.

@Bobashek We just started May orders. Your order is from June 20th. We have it, but it will be a while.

@SteveRicketts I'm a little concerned as I haven't received any updates since my order was received in early June (21-1DEE524). If I am understanding the TAT correctly, they should be shipping back to me soon.

Could you possibly look into the status of my order? I opted for both Fast Pass and Fast Press.

Does anything on the dashboard or otherwise change once an order has been pressed? Like any update changes? I'd rather not wait another 17 weeks (until grading is done, hopefully, less time) to never see any kind of change.

@PhantomStranger271 - Usually yes, but right now, not necessarily.

Will a clean and press screen take a pass if they don't think it's safe for the book?

I have a couple golden age books I would like graded and don't think a clean/press would damage them...but what do I know!!!

If you send a book for press without a screen, we will reject the book from pressing if we feel the book may be damaged by pressing it.

I have a Silver Surfer #1 with tape all up the spine. I was considering sending it in with a press just to make it look better in a slab (the grade is stuck as is). But will the press likely to loosen the tape or anything like that?

@Silverado That book will probably be rejected. It has nothing to gain and everything to lose.

Thanks Steve. I was suspecting it was beyond a press but just wanted it to have a nice look in the slab (I value my crappy copy of this book quite a lot ).

I also really appreciate the before and after pictures you were posting in the other forum. Seeing those creases and bends disappear is super satisfying.

Take care.

@Bobashek - As Steve pointed out to you 15 days ago that they just started pressing comics from the beginning of May, it is highly doubtful that our orders from late June are being pressed yet.

Copied from the turnaround thread since it involves pressing

Received Feb 3 (should have actually been received a bit before that).

Entered grading July 23. From checking my invoice, I know it said 'labels' pretty quickly afterward.

Finished grading and into production October 7.

Shipped today, October 14.

@SteveRicketts My order has been stuck on "Pressing" despite Fast Press/Fast Pass, and my emails are not being answered by CBCS customer support.

Could you give please give me an update on order 21-1DEE524 ?

@mscampbe Pressed and waiting to be graded.

@nightsnotover I don't see it cleared out from pressing yet but it should be moving to the line in the grading room any day.

How long does "waiting to be graded" typically last once an order has been pressed?

Hey @SteveRicketts, can you stop pressing books altogether and go find where everyone who has books waiting to be pressed are in the queue and report back here?
