I don't want to brag, but cashiers are always checking me out. power_struggle55 private msg quote post Address this user
just got an email saying my 4 comic submission (2 new, 2 modern) hit grading room (do have a rehold but they did that already)

so took 6 days for them to officially receive it (after submitting it at a convention) and 4 days for it to be ready to looked at

they say they had a money back garuntee it would be done in the time said (30 days) but didnt believe it till they did. I figure either get it super fast or for free

Submission with six witness signatures at HeroesCon shows as having completed grading and reached production & processing in the tracker.

Submission with five sketch covers is still in invoicing. Kind of wish the sketch covers had processed first, but I expect they are trying to stay FIFO. It is odd that they haven't even charged the card yet.

Here's how we track CBCS orders. The red column headers are the states at which they send an email, the ones between you have to catch by looking at the "Print Invoice". The only way to tell that pressing is complete is that the state goes from Pressing back to Received before it reaches Grading.

All the ones in this image are magazine orders...

I also appreciate this insight. Knowing all the possible statuses is useful. Unfortunately, I am now back to thinking VSP is going well beyond the estimated two weeks.

Like I said previously, my last VSP order went directly from Imaging to Grading, I've also had one go from Imaging to Received before it went to Grading. Either way, they never (in my experience) go from Imaging to Pressing as they don't seem to update it between the two. Your order should still be on time.

I saw the grades. Big disappointment but Im fine. Not selling them anytime soon anyway. I got them for super cheap at a convention which their grades is probably why. Infinite crisis #3 saw for $20...got it in a 7 pack (with #5 and the other issues for $30....got it for $25...and the grades were 8.0 for #3 and 6.0 for #5)

Regarding VSP and timelines, my 3 comic new/modern VSP and pressing submission was delivered on May 9 and received by CBCS on May 11. Today, June 29, I received an email advising that my comics have moved to pressing. I can also see when I "Print Invoice" that the status is pressing. I believe that is 34 business days.

I'm not an expert, but I assumed the vsp gives them an out on the guarantee. I have 3 books that are in pressing that had vsp, and I assumed I didn't qualify for the guarantee.

I hope I'm wrong. I had 2 magazine vsp that rocketed through. I guess pressing is still kinda behind?

Wow, it looks like they are actually updating between VSP and pressing finally. They will probably be through pressing within a few days.

In regards to my order. I asked if it was under guarantee. Here is their response.

Unfortunately, your order does not qualify for the "Money Back Promise" promo. The promo is for orders with grading and encapsulation only. Any Add-Ons like VSP or Pressing do not qualify. VSP alone can add an additional estimated 2 business weeks. Then Pressing on top of that can add an estimated 12-20 business days, depending on the Pressing tier you choose. Hopefully this helps. If you have any other questions please feel free to reach back out.

I was shocked of how fast it took. a little over a week from when they officially received it (put into their system).

Agreed, the VSP order shown above is now well beyond 30 business days at Imaging SP, while five of the other grade only orders are about to bang up against the 30 business day turn time guarantee.

Our VSP order was in Imaging/SP from May 10 through July 8, and is now back to just Received as it waits to enter Grading.

I had no way of knowing that 9.8 graded copies signed by Adam Hughes weren't what you were looking for. drchaos private msg quote post Address this user
It has been almost exactly three months since I submitted just over 1,500 books to CBCS.

There are six invoices with 569 books that are in billing or processing.

I think they have other submissions jumping ahead of mine due to the guarantee they put out for submissions starting on May 1st.

So I got the emails that my books have been moved into pressing on 6/29 but when I signed in it still says received/processing. Is that the usual? Appreciate the input.

I also received notification on June 29 that my comics had moved to Pressing. I check the status pretty often, but not necessarily daily. It stayed in Pressing for most of the time since June 29, but I noticed today that it once again says Received. I did not receive any notification of the change. Information posted by figment earlier in the thread indicates this is a normal stop between Pressing and Grading.

@Cerebus3000

Yes my books went from pressing to grading and it took a couple of days to get email stating the change.

My order moved to Heat Seal yesterday, and moved to Shipping today (July 20). Other than VSP it was a pretty quick turn around.
