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.


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.

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.

So this might be strange?
I submitted one comic from NYCC which was literally 13 days ago.
Express Pressing & Express Grading were selected.

It just got entered into the CBCS system today (nice!); AND it states that the comic is in "Pressing" via email and through the "Print Invoice"???
Express Pressing is 193 days as stated. Why would my book go into pressing after 13 days? Or is it just in queue?

Man am I lost... happy (I think) but lost

@Nuffsaid111 - I would be that it is in queue for pressing. Additionally, I still think that the stated times are on the inflated side as none of my press submissions are taking anywhere near as long as what is estimated. Why would they be inflated? I can only guess that it is to either manage expectations or that the estimates are miscalculated from when they migrated from Week TAT's to Business Day TAT's.

Thanks - yep, I anticipated 193 might be "off", but not THAT far off. I was thinking more along the lines of 192 days; maybe 191

Been waiting on my submission since June 14, 2021. I sure am excited about their new "tracker" that shows that my comics have been in the slabbing stage since mid-summer. It's been really useful to know that I can hurry up and wait. 1 year and 4 months...and counting.

10 of my comics that were received by them on Aug. 17th for sig. verification and slabbing, We got an email last friday that it was complete and we'd get a tracking number. Never got the tracking number, but they did arrive today. So Yea!
Now in a year or so hoping to get #1, and especially #8 back with a high grade. fingers crossed

So somebody is working Saturdays. This marks the 2nd weekend in the past 3, that I had movement after Friday night. Below, one of my 7/14/21 delivered submissions had an update today, when checking the Print Invoice hyperlink. (yes, a hit that link at least once a day)

#-----A44C-MD - 60 comics - In HeatSeal 10/22, In Labels 10/19, In Grading notification 10/18 (press completed 8/1 or likely earlier), In Pressing Room. (per SteveRicketts post that they are working on orders delivered Sept 2021, just haven't received notification or dashboard update)

You guys make my head hurt. I dropped my books off in early April of this year. I don’t stand a chance if you haven’t seen your books in over a year. Man… this sucks I was hoping for about 1 year or less.

@sportshort don’t give up hope 9 of my 11 June 2020 were pressed and graded in 44-52 weeks. 1 of the 2 that was not completed in a year or less had VSP.

Just got the email that one of our vintage only, grade only submissions is ready for pickup. This is the second of these in a row that has been completed in only four months clock time.

Meanwhile, none of the new or modern grade only orders have budged, and many of them were submitted before the vintage ones.

It really makes me think that there are now two grading lines, one for vintage and one for not vintage, and that the bulk of what CBCS has in queue is new or modern.

Either that or we got the lucky side of two flukes in row, I guess it's anybody's guess as to which is correct.

@figment - I believe there are definitely different lanes outside of the express tiers. Potentially up to 5 non-express lanes:

New
Modern
Vintage
Vintage +
Premium

Maybe New & Modern are the same lane or maybe different lanes with the same coincidental speed, i don't know.
But, I suspect that Vintage is in the old Expanded lane, Vintage Plus is in the old Consumer lane, and the Premium being an amalgam of the old 1 Day, 2 Day, Rapid, Quicksteam tiers without the guarantee of the Express tiers. Each of the old tiers had their own lanes and sometimes the Consumer/Expanded/Modern tier had similar TAT's and sometimes very different TAT's.

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.

This morning brings a slew of activity! Received email notifications on the items in Bold below. Additionally, before the emails, a quick check of the Print Invoice hyperlink revealed one submission *****8142 was in "QC". And *****A44C moved from HeatSeal back to Labels. One of those curious oddities.

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

For anyone seeking information regarding TAT for modern comics in the standard tier -- my comics were submitted to CBCS on December 21, 2021. I just received an email today (about 4 hours ago) that my comics have been graded, encapsulated, and are ready to be shipped.

It's been approximately 211 business days since my submission was received. Now, let's hope they are actually shipped out in a timely manner.

Update to my order 2021 order above. It entered heat seal yesterday and went into shipping today. The Tracker is correct now for the order as well. So TAT for the order was about 10 months from when they marked it received.

Last update -- just received confirmation that the books shipped today. Nothing too exciting, just some books I wanted to be able to display. I'll post pics once they arrive.

That is good news, congrats! Were they standard grade without pressing? I have an invoice of books there since December 4, 2021, no pressing either, all modern tier, so those I would assume should be done if they process in the order received.

I have one order - 21-360B1D1 - of 210 modern pre-screens submitted on 9/26/2021 that is now in Billing so should be shipped within a week.

However I have another order - 21-2F2FAA9 - of 270 modern pre-screens submitted on 8/23/2021 that is still in Heatseal and has been for four months.

Kind of strange that a "younger" order of the same quantity magnitude is processed before the "older" one especially since the "older" one was in Grading and Heatseal several months before the "younger" one.

I still have a ton of books on other orders and asked CS to cancel them back at the first of September and other than a rep calling me to confirm that's what I want and the regional rep emailing me, I have heard crickets. Guess I'll have to get back on that horse again...
