One year and 11 days later, my first and likely only CBCS unsigned book submission is on its way back to me. Money well spent!

@Bronte
The email says it was shipped via CanPar, with a tracking #.
Contacting them now, and then CBCS customer service in an effort to reroute.
Will send an update as this develops.

Excellent.... Welcome to the forum.
When you get you stash back and open the box to find that CBCS sweetness, hopefully you will reconsider and send some more in.

I am waiting for a CGC & CBCS submission and will be for a good while to come.
But the thing is, you can't get them to come back if you don't send them in.....

Just look at how long @Scifinator has been waiting for hundreds of books...
The dictionary has some photos under the definition of patience. And there he is.
Smiling with great anticipation for the gems headed his way....

Order dropped at a DEC 2021 convention, arrival date posted January 17, 2022 and I just got an email it is in GRADING! (although my invoice and account still says Processing) fingers crossed!

My Baltimore Comic Con 2021 all modern, witnessed signature, grade only submission has shipped. Grades as expected.

Now the only question remains, will they be delivered before my Baltimore Comic Con 2022 submissions are dropped off with CGC next Sunday? Odds say no

I am sad everything has gone so far off the rails at CBCS, I've been a member 8 years - but this is my final order and when my membership expires in a few months, it will not be renewed.

May all your books be 9.8s and all your pages white

Peace out

I have 10 that I sent in for sig auth. and slab. they went (finally) to heat seal 2 days ago now on the invoice it says grading where it had said heat seal, on left it has always said slab only. is this normal, and what does it mean? and what does OA/OS mean on the right?

Just told by CGC customer support that the clock starts when they enter the order, not when the package arrives at their facility. So that six weeks the package sat around before they opened and entered it apparently doesn't count. 391 calendar days and counting... BLARG!!!

I've gotten all five of my equivalent CBCS orders back from that same time period, the first came back several months ago.

When I check two outstanding invoices of books the "old" way one says "received", the other says "ImagingSP" which it has said for several months. When I go through the "tracker", one shows a check mark in the first box "invoicing" even though I was told recently they have been pressed and in the grading room. The other invoice via the tracker shows the second box as having the check mark implying they have been graded, but was told recently they were still in the queue to get graded. These were books that CBCS has had since early December 2021 when the TAT several months, not years. I don't have much faith in the old way or the new tracker, only way I know they are finished is when FedEx alerts me a package is on it's way to me.

This is quite the accurate statement.
I look and make sure my books were received - that's it.
Next up is shipping.

Those are the only 2 updates that matter to me. The others .... I don't even want to say. It's not nice

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.

Some more movement today. Got the official email notification this morning (in Bold below) of movement to "Grading" status, though this likely had pressing completed back in July or Aug. Then, with my afternoon Invoice check, I see two have moved from Grading to Labels sub-status. Also in Bold below.

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

Fortunately the books are on their way to the correct address.
It took two days to find out. I emailed customer service and called them and still didn't hear back.
Grateful to one of the moderators who was able to confirm that the package is headed to the right destination.

Clearly CBCS still needs to work on its automated process and customer service acumen.
Having a person who can answer the phone means a lot in this day and age.

So everything I have seen shows pressing takes close to a year. out of curiosity, after that how long is grading? and as a side question you have to wonder how this pressing is done, if everyone's takes that long, how big of a facility is it to be pressing thousands of comics at the same time? do the just have a bunch of boards, with bricks stacked on them? lol. seriously, I'd love to see how its done.

@Lobofan - My submissions that were delivered between Jun 8th and Sept 20th of 2021 have been taking from 44 weeks to what looks to be 71 weeks so far for total Press and Grade TAT. The Press alone has been taking 43 - 60 weeks for those submissions, so Grading to shipped is taking 1 - 12 weeks based on my samples. No Fast Press or Fast Pass. Now to further color, it is entirely possible that my submissions from February and August of this year may indeed take several weeks to months longer due to this years adding of the Express Tiers. CBCS has not reduced (or corrected what I believe to be miscalculated Business Day TAT's), so that may be a foreshadow that this years submissions are going to take longer. We'll see.

Jesus...no wonder my lowly order of 50 books with no pressing is so back logged. That list made me go cross eyed. LOL.

Honestly just scared that my order from Baltimore is either lost or in hell. I get excited that folks are getting their Baltimore orders back now, however my order tracking never seems to twitch. Just want my 3 orders done so I can cut ties with future submissions. I do like talking with forum members and indulge in the various topics. This topic is a tombstone killer for me, though, chalk full of regret and disbelief. Blah.

Just got an update on my late November 2021 order. 5 modern books, no pressing. It entered grading today. Was logged in as received on December 22, 2021. As for the tracker, it says my order is in the "Invoicing" stage. So I'm guessing there's still some kinks to be worked out on that end, especially as my Feb 2022 order says it's in the "Production and Processing" stage but I've had no emails about it.

Yeah, the emails at state changes seem to have gotten less frequent. The last order we picked up was a bit of a surprise as we got the "Production" and "Ready for Pickup" emails about two hours apart with nothing beforehand. We know they have a process, now it's just a matter of getting all the digital touch-points built in.

Let me understand this:
We, as the customer, can go check our status via the "Print Invoice" method OR
we can use the new tracker tool to check our status

And neither is accurate?

I can't even say anything more.
It's like entering Bizarro world.

I have two invoices of books from December 4, 2021. One is Fast Press/Standard Grade, the other is Standard Grade without Pressing. Despite what the tracker states, the Press/Grade invoice have been pressed already and both invoices are in the grading queue so hopefully not much longer. I am actually more concerned with my 60 books being re-holdered, as I am at the four month mark on those.

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
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.

Some more movement today, as was the case for 3 submissions yesterday, I received an official "Grading" notification via email on a submission that likely had press completed back in July. In Bold below.

Afternoon EDIT - 2 More official notifications of In Grading + 2 updates from clicking the Print Invoice hyperlink

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.
