Well, I will do it right then. While my last submission did take that long the way things were handled with other people and the fact that CBCS didn't even bother to contact folks that had subbed via the former Canadian Shipping outlet I decided that CBCS burned it's bridges with me. Community attitudes also didn't help matters. I may submit in the future but for me grading isn't important as I am bringing my collecting of single issues to a close over the next year and just going the collected edition route. As well there are options outside of the big two that I have decided are just fine for my needs should I want to get anything graded. The community in my area is just not what it used to be and I don't like the direction it has taken so I am just doing what I want and dealing with the people I want to not those who appear to be in it for the money and/or recognition.

Happy collecting everyone!

Thanks for this thread and to you @figment. It gives us an idea of how long we have to wait especially for Press Screen that will yield to Press.

Uh oh, I have four books for signature verification. I hope we're not going backward as far as turnaround time is concerned.

When a CBCS order is on 'Shipping' status (created only last Dec. 4, 2023), and I had Press Screen on, does that mean pressing was already done?
I could have sworn that some of those books would benefit from pressing before slabbing, at least a couple. But turnaround time was really fast, so do you think they did not press screen, or press screened but found no bump in grade?

@JazzyJeffie usually I would get an email when they move from pressing to grading. If they went too quickly and you didn't get an email, I would guess they didn't pass the screen.

I was told by my cousin that his books are still on 'Shipping' status from the CBCS tracker page since 18-Dec-2023. Is that normal?

I was told by my cousin that his books are still on 'Shipping' status from the CBCS tracker pages (total of 2 orders) since 18-Dec-2023. Is that normal?

Also, he sent in an order that was received by CBCS last 26-Dec-2023, but it shows as 'Cancelled' on his account.
He has contacted CBCS customer support, but no response yet.

He did not open a forum account, so he's asking me to post this in his behalf.
Any guidance will be appreciated. Thank you everyone.

Con dropoff Nov.25
Received Dec.1

Comic Reholder *grading*
x3 books, x2 VSP

Slab Only *received*
x5 VSP

Magazine Slab only *received*
x1 VSP

I'm hoping the signatures pass for VSP books. They're foreign signatures so I'm guessing it'll take sometime to pass.

Two weeks ago, my magazine didn't meet the size requirement and switched to raw grading.

Combination of different types of orders, I didn't think I'll get the quick turnaround as everyone else.
