Got an email yesterday that the book I sent for the Rosario Dawson event was in pressing. Tracker didn't yet show anything. Let's see if I get any more emails or if the tracker updates on this submission; it didn't on the last one.

I also sent a couple books to take advantage of the ASP discount. USPS shows that they arrived four days ago, but my card has not been charged yet. Also no dashboard update or email.

It took a week after delivery to get our last order entered into the system. A little uncharacteristic but at least it's moving.

Our current VSP order has been sitting at Received (between Pressing and Grading) for four weeks now. Very uncharacteristic, I'm not far from inquiring about it.

Have I told you about the time I dropped off 3,000 comics at SDCC? Scifinator private msg quote post Address this user
@figment - I suspect that there were some extra submissions because of the CBCS 10th Anniversary Celebration Auction, and I would not be surprised if there may be some CBCS employees enjoying vacation time as spring/summer is upon us and perhaps the tracking data entry is a little delayed. Just guessing, as I had my most recent submission move from encapsulation to shipping in 1 minute this week.

Strange. My VSP order, 3 New, 1 Slab-Only, no pressing was received May 7th, and have been in grading for a week or two now (got the email for the Slab-Only book on 5/15. Didn’t receive an email for the New books but the order page shows them in grading)

One of the books I sent because of the ASP discount was in pressing on the 7th (Modern) and the other was moved to pressing today (New). So it sounds like there's a considerable backlog of new books to be pressed.

Email today said the book from the Rosario Dawson signing has made it to grading. That's 16 business days to get through pressing, so a bit better than the 20 shown on the website. As long as actual TAT stays at or under the 50 business days for pressing and grading shown on the website, I will keep sending books. I submit for my PC, so it's not like I need to turn books quickly for flipping.

Of course, since I decorate with my graded books, I need to make my mind up about Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas submissions pretty quickly.

Two emails this morning, both received at 8:29 Eastern (somebody was up early or late in Dallas). One said my book from the Rosario Dawson signing was in production, and the other said it was in shipping. So if the book ships today or Monday, that's a 19-20 day TAT for pressing and grading. Hard to complain with the website promising 50.

My books have shipped this morning, so about one month from receipt to shipped

CBCS got my books on April 30th and shipped them back today. All 4 books had at least 1 signature to be verified and they all got pressed. 3 out of 4 got graded a 9.8. The 4th book (Batman #500 die-cut cover) with 5 signatures on it came back at 8.5.

I submitted 2 vintage and one modern for gerry conway sig
And a second submission that just made it there by the deadline. It was a copy of amazing spider man 121 I bought on ebay already graded by cgc. When it arrived the slab had been damaged in shipping. I was about to submit it to cgc for a new holder when realizing I still had time to get it to cbcs for the gerry conway signing
All books in all submissions got signed on June 22nd
I got an email on the 26th that they had been recieved in Plano and were now in the grading department. I didn't request pressing. So far so good

I have two books going out at the end of this month for just grading.
Would be nice to have them back faster than the six week TAT.
