So, this is a fun order for me. I sent in 8 books last April, decided to try out the "Grader press screen?" It was so long ago I'm not even sure I remember seeing that but, whatever.

So, in January of this year, they split off 2 of those books for pressing and the other 6 went and got graded and I already got them back. So, 6 with no press, mix of modern and new with 1 sig verification, I got back in ~10 months.

Meanwhile, I emailed just to check in on the other 2. I was told the TAT for pressing is 490 business days, and then it'll go to grading, etc... So, If I'm doing my math right (and I'm estimating not using a calculator)those 2 books, that were accepted at CBCS April 10th 2022, will get back to me sometime around Sep-Nov of 2024.

The 490 business day turn time shown on the website is a total joke. It's actually about half of that (and falling). See above.

I just took a look at the TAT page and pressing says 50 days basically across the board. Quite a change.

@xvipah Steve just posted that they finished orders through May, so you should already be in grading.

Maybe, I'm not gonna argue with you because I don't have any real insight. All I can tell you is I got an email 19 hours ago, from CBCS customer support, that says they just got moved to the pressing room in January. They were invoiced in January. Pressing is in order received in the pressing room, and the TAT is 490 business days.

@figment - yes, Steve got them to update it. But my consistent updates pointing out that the estimated press tat was basically 2-3 times longer than I was experiencing, well, i will just stop there.

I don't think it's a shock that submissions for both CGC & CBCS are significantly down.
Folks aren't making money like they were and it's significantly impacted TATs from both.

My 3/30/2022 order (received 4/6/2022 - 5 books) went into grading yesterday.

I got notified that 2 of my books (lenticular covers) were signed on the inside and given the option to have them verified. I went with the verification. Thank you Customer Service, that was very considerate. 👍 Hopefully, this doesn't add too much more time.

still waiting for my 3 june submssions that were received in august (Amazing spider-man #365, Amazing spider-man #4 and Go Go Power Rangers #8). the one time cbcs did respond to my email about the order that gave me a headache, said they were being graded as well.

so maybe will get notified in next month. or will in october. i know now. best to just wait and be patient. thats why I did 1 comic on first submission. test the waters. now I know first hand what to expect

For those coming to this thread for actual information which may give you an idea of Grade only and Press & Grade TATs, with a couple of VSP thrown in, below is a detail of my 32 Non-Express Tier submissions from June 2021 through August of 2022.

Got email on one submission set and also saw movement on a different submission by doing a quick check of the "Print Invoice" hyperlink button in each submission plus updates on some Completed subs, in "Bold" below.

CR = Comic ReHolder
EX = Expanded (now Vintage)
CN = Consumer (now Vintage Plus)
MD = Modern
NW = New
VN = Vintage
VT = Vintage Plus
PM = Premium

Some quick factoids on mid-2021 submissions:

33 Separate submissions
- 28 Press & Grade Submissions
- 1 VSP, Press & Grade Submission
- 4 Grade only Submissions

The longest TAT of my grade only was <51 wks or 244 Business days.
The longest TAT for combined Press & Grade was only 71 1/2 wks or 343 Business days.
The Shortest TAT for combined Press & Grade was 44 wks or 213 Busisness days.
The funny thing is, that both the longest and shortest TATs came from submissions that were delivered to CBCS on the same day on June 8th. [/b]

Delivered to CBCS on June 8th 2021 in two separate boxes. (All standard, w/out any FAST P's and one with VSP added).

5 of the 11 had press completed within 43wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 44wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 45wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 49wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <50wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <52wks.
1 of the 11 likely had press completed in ~52wks

Question for anyone who has done this recently...

If a book needing verification were sent modern express... does verification overrule express?
Is there a point in paying for the express?
Would hate to if the verification means it'll take a year or more.

Bonus question... is express anywhere near the stated tats?

I did vintage express. I didn't count the days but it was very fast. This also included a delay because they had to ask if I wanted a signature verified.

Edit
The biggest time spent was getting them to accept the package. Once they got it into system it was very fast

Signature verification might add a few days to an Express submission, but you'll still get it back MUCH faster than a normal submission. The TAT on Modern submissions is dropping considerably. One of the orders we picked up today was roughly 120 business days, whereas one of the orders we picked up three months ago was nearly 250 business days.

Let there be no doubt about it... the queues are shrinking and the worst is over!

Seems like they are cranking stuff out over the past week. My submission was received mid-May 2022, went into grading this past weekend, slabbing on Monday, and shipped today.

The biggest time spent was getting them to accept the package. Once they got it into system it was very fast




Thank you.

Bonus question... is express anywhere near the stated tats?


Signature verification might add a few days to an Express submission, but you'll still get it back MUCH faster than a normal submission. The TAT on Modern submissions is dropping considerably. One of the orders we picked up today was roughly 120 business days, whereas one of the orders we picked up three months ago was nearly 250 business days.

Let there be no doubt about it... the queues are shrinking and the worst is over!

Thank you.

All but two of the books I have submitted in the recent past have been express with signature verification, and all have been processed within the promised express TAT.

For those coming to this thread for actual information which may give you an idea of Grade only and Press & Grade TATs, with a couple of VSP thrown in, below is a detail of my 32 Non-Express Tier submissions from June 2021 through August of 2022.

Super Fast plus a big development. Got email on one submission set and also saw movement on a different submission by doing a quick check of the "Print Invoice" hyperlink button in each submission plus updates on some Completed subs, in "Bold" below.

CR = Comic ReHolder
EX = Expanded (now Vintage)
CN = Consumer (now Vintage Plus)
MD = Modern
NW = New
VN = Vintage
VT = Vintage Plus
PM = Premium

Some quick factoids on mid-2021 submissions:

33 Separate submissions
- 28 Press & Grade Submissions
- 1 VSP, Press & Grade Submission
- 4 Grade only Submissions

The longest TAT of my grade only was <51 wks or 244 Business days.
The longest TAT for combined Press & Grade was only 71 1/2 wks or 343 Business days.
The Shortest TAT for combined Press & Grade was 44 wks or 213 Busisness days.
The funny thing is, that both the longest and shortest TATs came from submissions that were delivered to CBCS on the same day on June 8th. [/b]

Delivered to CBCS on June 8th 2021 in two separate boxes. (All standard, w/out any FAST P's and one with VSP added).

5 of the 11 had press completed within 43wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 44wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 45wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in 49wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <50wks,
1 of the 11 had press completed in <52wks.
1 of the 11 likely had press completed in ~52wks

Delivered to CBCS 11/15/2021 (Yes, 2021. This is a submission of 66 Magazines that were sent to Joe at @CFP_Comics for Pressing and he was going to re-forward to cgc for grading. After a conversation with Steve Borock, I decided to have CFP send to CBCS as it I was not in a hurry to have them back and 5 1/2 dozen would be a good batch to run through and get iron out the process of Magazine encasement. "Test Dummies" is how I referred to them. Thank you again Joe for your agreeing to alter the forwarding after you completed your Pressing services. Well, there has been movement at CBCS this past week.)

I turned these in at the Plastic City Comic Con in May of last year to the guys at CBCS. "The Strange Tales #159", I had wanted to be signed by Jim Steranko but the lines was awful. He was the main attraction. I had a sketch cover done by Keith Williams of Icon but that was submitted separately because it was not going to be pressed (it is currently in heat seal). I thought the Avengers were in much better shape than the grades received. They were received at CBCS on June 1, 2022 and I received notification of their shipment today.

The Steranko line always moves slow, mostly because he has a story for everybody and his signature itself is a work of art.
