I spoke with Josh at Avery pressing. He said faster is not always better with pressing. I don’t mind them taking their time to get the best grade possible.

I hear their hourly rate is outrageous! sportshort private msg quote post Address this user
Dropped off 5 books for signature verification, grading, and encapsulation. Almost three months to the day, they are on their way to me. Although I am happy that they are on their way back, 3 months seems a bit much. Or am I wrong, and that's the current average?

Seems to be close to the average lately, definitely much slower than the fall though. I had a submission that was delivered at the end of August and completed VSP/Pressing/Grading (all at the slowest speed tier) and entered Shipping exactly 30 calendar days after being received by CBCS. I knew that couldn't last sadly....

Are the TATs on the website still accurate? I get the feeling from the posts above, that the TATs are taking a bit longer than posted on the website.

I noticed that under the "About" tab on the website, the "People Who Make It Happen" are listed. Steve and West are the only people listed. There are only 2 people who make the whole show happen! That is an amazing workload for 2 people, but could also help explain the cause for the slowdown. They might be entering a rest period.

@Silverado the order I got back recently took longer than listed for pressing but then much faster for grading.

Single magazine dropped off on March 6.
Already completed sig verification.
Moved today from pressing back to received so that seems to be done.
Just seems to be waiting on the grading at this point.
This is moving lightning fast. Super happy.
If you have magazines that need to be graded/pressed, now seems to be a good time.

I picture a tie that looks like a deer wiener. HeinzDad private msg quote post Address this user
Does anyone have a TAT on book drop off at a con until they read received on your dashboard? Another boardie gave me an idea of a few months ago but I’m quite a ways past it. I’m wondering if that has expanded.

Quick turnaround and the new slabs look good.

It was, they just hit this morning, and the reholder is already at Labels (which is probably where they start).

Interesting. Our latest reholder has gone from labels back to grading. Full disclosure I've no visibility into the inner workings of the CBCS process line, but that seems like a step backwards. Especially when it makes sense that a reholder would start at labels.

And now it's at heat seal. Very odd.
