Personally, I am fine with them posting an obvious and proven overstatement of TAT's and just leaving it. But incessant and inane complainers...I'll just stop there.


It's been many....

Soooooo, it's award time...

Does anyone know how long pre-screening adds to an invoice or do the regular TATs apply? I have a pre-screen modern order that was delivered to CBCS on 8/25/2021 and so subtracting the 8 holidays between then and now, it has been 247 business days. The status is "Heatseal" but it has been that way for two months or better. The 35 day turnaround currently at the other guys is pretty impressive although their magazine grading is at 184 days which isn't so hot.

Prescreening is the regular TAT. It just means that when your books come up in the queue they check them for whatever you're prescreening (pressing or grading).

@WalkinWillie @xkonk - I was recently doing some online submissions, and when I added Screen ( I don't remember if it was for grade or press but I think it was for press screen), it added 1 week to estimated TAT

@Caffeine_Kid you're lucky my books have been in grading for almost 2 months now lol. It didn't take as much time to get to grading as I expected, I guess they are making up for that "error".

Heatseal has been taking 2-3months. You should probably have yours back by now. I would consider these overdue.

I just unearthed some forgotten treasure in what little raw we have left, and the clock on the Modern VSP Express submission begins today for the following three books...

Concrete Celebrates Earth Day (1990) Autographed by Paul Chadwick
Concrete Celebrates Earth Day (1990) Autographed by Moebius (Jean Giraud)
Alpha Flight 1 (1983) Autographed by John Byrne

None will be super high grade but I really don't care, rediscovering them was the thrill of this past weekend! WOOT!

My submitted books arrived June 10, 2021. All had Press Screening and Imaging. All were apparently pressed, but I was never notified they were in pressing.

May 24, 2022 checked invoice. In pressing.

July 14, Notified they were in grading.

July 20, invoice says HotSeal.

August 2, Notified they entered production area for casing.

August 9, invoice says grading.

August 14, invoice says Imaging

August 16, invoice says shipping.

So close [wringing hands in anticipation]

So with being said the average TAT with pressing is a little over a year?? That doesn't seem as bad as I had originally thought

@Caffeine_Kid @ComicNinja0215 - so looking at my 6/8/21 and @Caffeine_Kid 6/10/21 stats, 11 of our 12 press subs were at 43 - 61 weeks with 1 remaining for me.

That is from then. While that gives us all hope in that it is less than 1/2 the current posted TAT estimate’s, I would also caution that these were already in place before Express tiers came and i might imagine that non-express submissions that were sent in this year, may be longer that what is being seen with June 2021 subs. But, then again, new facility with potentially more press machines and new hires, maybe still not as bad as the current estimated TATS.
