Update: received my order sent May 28th 2021 today. 10 comics all modern no press 2 VSP. So 33 Weeks total from when CBCS got them. Hopefully that timeline gives others an idea of how long to expect.

Also anyone else waiting on the Bob Layton event back in September? Still just showing received, and don't know how long to expect or if it follows the same TAT as a normal submission. Did a CGC event last summer and the whole process took two months, so I'm just trying to get a bead on how long it'll be.


Just like that, it was shipped out with a tracking number. After months of hearing nothing and seeing no updates, three emails in two days and my books are on their way back to me, all sigs verified, and with better grades than I could've hoped for (9.4 on a book I read to absolute death before I learned how to care for books, and two 9.8s!)

Honestly the last 11 months have been incredibly frustrating at times, and I learned a lot for the next time I submit books, but honestly seeing those scores and knowing how close I am to having my books back makes it all worth it. I'm so excited.

Thanks for posting this, my order must be getting close.

I sent my submission the day after yours (May 29th) and mine have been in labels for 3 months.

I mean seriously, is there any reason for CBCS to actually change anything?

/rant off


CANADIAN SUBMISSION UPDATE

I submitted 6 modern to Canadian office July 8 2020

No screening, pressing, or pay to win fast-pass

(TAT was posted as 8 weeks at the time),

It's week 31 and still in 'processing', so the current 25 week TAT is also in need of major adjustment.

Still waiting on grading, encapsulating, labels, return shipping (am I missing anything else??)

3 unanswered emails, 3 unanswered voice messages, 1 direct message (unanswered) to sborock




Did you try knocking on the door or ringing the door bell?
Maybe they didn't hear you.
Try knocking a little LOUDER!

Or, if you are real nice, ask my buddy Jesse_O.
He has helped a few of us here find out submission status.
Hope you can get an update soon. PS... Stay warm if possible.

I sent directly to Dallas not through the Canadian office and was in labels for sometime as well.

Thanks for that update, I think my first of two orders from the same show which didn't require press did have some books requiring signature verification so it's possible those will be done next week. The other order I opted for pressing and more signature verification so those will be a bit longer. I will post up when/if I get some sort of email when the first order is ready to ship.

@Nearmint67 - You are still in hurry up and wait mode.

I have orders for grading only that CBCS receive the end of June that are still in Labels.

I have orders with press that CBCS received the end of May that are still in CBCS care.

@Scifinator Looks like training the new hires has only added to the length of the TAT.
Hope they can find the next gear sometime this year. I gotta a lotta books to send in.
As you said last year "Full steam ahead!"

When you say 'sent' do you mean when they were mailed or when they were marked received in Texas? I have an order with 17 modern, no press - sent (to Oakville) April 20th, marked received (in Texas) mid-June. Status has been 'ShipToCanada' for about a month but nothing back yet.

My submission was done in August. It was my first time submitting. I did it at Planet Comicon in Kansas City in mid/late August. They told me to expect it around January. Looks like it might be a bit longer as it wasn't apparently entered into their system until October.

Guess I am going to be in a holding pattern for a while yet....

@PDGray your TAT starts when the books get to Dallas (or usually midweek after a con), not when you see them marked. So you might still be waiting a bit, but you're waiting from August.

@Tyler I'm honestly not sure how they count Canada orders. I'm 80% sure that the grading TAT doesn't start until an order actually makes it out of pressing (e.g., if you send it in May but it isn't pressed until August, you get the August TAT).

For those browsing this thread like I am looking for any sliver of hope that their books will be graded soon, here's where I am:

6 comics submitted June 15,2021

32 weeks later, current status = "Grading". I wanna say they've been in "Grading" for at least a month now, if not longer.

With this being my first CBCS submission (I had dealt exclusively with CGC the past five years), I don't have much info on what to expect timing wise from here on out. But from what I've been reading, the "Labels" stage comes next. Anyone know the scoop on timing once your books hit "labels"?

It is what it is at this point, just hoping to avoid these books having a birthday while being graded

@certifiedcomicshop - Greetings and welcome to the forum. As you mentioned that you have reading some posts, you may have already seen the following, but just in case:

A - Your estimated TAT starts not when "Submitted" but either a day or so after CBCS physically receives your comics OR the Wednesday after your drop of at an convention. The date on your dashboard is not your estimated TAT start.

B - If your dashboard reflects "Grading", if you click the Invoice icon, there may be several subsets of "Grading" reflected. As the dashboard is an external system and separated from CBCS's internal tracking system for security reasons, it tends to not be updated frequently or in a timely manner during extreme circumstances as CBCS has found itself in for the past year. As such, the "Labels" stage may or may not be reflected. If it does get reflected, you may see it for hours, days, weeks, or months depending on where your submission actually was when your dashboard was updated. The "Labels", "QC", "Heat Seal", "Encasements" sub-stages seem to be taking about 2-3 months total on the lowest 3 tiers without FastPass. Most will never even see most of those stages reflected right now.

I would think that you and I are both going to be receiving some comics back soon.

Cheers!

Yeah. It’s really strange. The bottle neck doesn’t seem to be at any particular section of the process which is really weird. Usually you can improve one or two parts of the process and improve TAT. Maybe the lack of transparency and updates doesn’t allow us to actually know. Hopefully improving Customer Service will alleviate some of these questions.
