Could there be a membership incentive?? I know they do that across the street but couldn't hurt.

Nope this shouldn’t be some inclusive club that you have to pay to join to get your comics slabed and graded that one of the reasons that I even went with cbcs over cgc because they didn’t have membership fees

I pay $120 renewal of my membership and with that I get $150 submission credit. CGC is paying me to use them.

If I don't do it within the renewal window then I pay $150 for the $150 credit.

The bonuses that come with that are of no interest to me.

CBCS stopped offering vouchers for some reason. Not sure if it's because customer service didn't seem familiar with them or a disinterest in giving paying members any tangible appreciation.

Hi @Wade_Story - I'd like to emphasize @BrashLimburg's post about imaging. This is not something the submitter should have to pay for. CBCS has been making great strides in many areas, and this is one that you should not let the folks in Sarasota get too far ahead with.

Suck it up, buttercup!! KatKomics private msg quote post Address this user
just something I wished was an option rather than a question.

When I send books to CBCS I pack as well as I can - no movement when I shake, bubble wrap and peanuts etc. etc.

BUT - that doesn't mean something still couldn't happen - wish there was an option for CBCS to contact us if obvious damage was done to the box so we could add pressing to save any crumpled items

Hasn't happened to me...but was just something I was wonder/worrying about......

I'd like to say I still turned out alright, but that would be a lie. flanders private msg quote post Address this user
@KatKomics great question. I've read too many horror stories about obviously damaged books being graded instead of providing evidence of the damages, including the damaged packaging, so that an insurance claim can be filed.

Any progress here???


Wade, you on vacation over there???
@Nearmint67 Not on vacation. It’s just going to take some time for me to put this together in a way I think will work.


So, how much time we talking about here Wade? 2 months? 6 months? 2030'????
You can do eeeeeeeeeeeeet.... If you try...

How did Wade cross the road, he took the first step...and kept on going....
Can we get a first step here @Wade_Story

Every time you ask I add on 2 months , just kidding. In all seriousness, I have some pieces put together for one of the posts. My plan as it stands now would be individual posts about defects (what are they, what causes them- like foxing), pictures of different severities, how the grade is affected in a broad sense, and maybe a bit more general information. Unfortunately, videos just aren’t feasible for the forum at this time.

While this project is on my priority list, it is not exactly as high as some others. This is just going to be an individual thing for me to work on in my spare time to get for you all as a resource. (Unfortunately spare time is something that I don’t have a lot of right now). But I do want to get it done, and do it in a way I feel would be the most beneficial.
