Same here. I explained here HOW to fix it, but apparently that's a "no no" and my comment was deleted, so I messaged the OP directly

ditto. I don’t see anything a press would have fixed. I am also confused since OP stated submitting “mid grade books” to test grading. You submit a Modern in less desirable condition and gripe about a non pressable defect or cut back not being corrected?

The rental car company Enterprise also has a horrible service and they never have enough people working their counter.

Lots of newbies that have no idea what pressing can and cannot fix. We meet another one today.

The pressing issue the OP is having actually CAN be fixed, but it's prohibited from being explained here.

I sent the OP an email explaining how it can be fixed

Huh, okey dokey. Well that answers that. I kept seeing threads closed and etc. left and right and nobody explaining why. I actually don't really understand the reasoning I guess I thought it was just so people didn't do things themselves and disrupt a CBCS revenue stream, but if it's more a liability thing I guess that makes sense.

Kinda weird, though. But thanks @DrWatson

I know no one does, but it might save someone a lot of tears if they would read some of the stickied threads at the top of the page before posting half cocked or fully loaded.

@MurrayC - It cannot be fixed if it wasn’t a press-able issue to begin with, as I and others have explained. In the example you gave, then yes, it could be fixed. BUT, judging from the OP’s silence, from lack of further full view pics, knowledge of that comic and the paper/card stock used, this looks to be a manufactured issue and not a pressable defect. Nor does it look to be CAUSED by errant pressing.

I don't believe it's a manufacturing issue given that the OP's problem can happen to ANY comic if improper techniques were. As a presser myself, I have actually made the exact same mistake as seen in the OPs example when I was first learning.

However... I've been told by the moderators that I am prohibited from explaining the fix, but I am free to say that it CAN be fixed.

#trimming?

For those that have asked. Pressing and restoration techniques cannot be discussed as clearly stated in the Rules. Since CBCS does not do restoration; I’m sure it is to prevent liability if someone were to ruin their book after being told how to do something Via the CBCS Forum. No one wants to deal with that especially if you were involved only through 3rd party relation at best. CYA.

The book in question is Ghost Rider #15 which was commonly produced with the cover a little smaller than the interior pages. I dont know if that is what the OP is complaining about or not. He never replied to my PM asking for clarification and the invoice number.

That said, I'll lock the thread to prevent it from tempting anyone to tapdance around the rules. If the OP wants his concerns addressed, he is more than welcome to reply to my PM.
