@KatKomics what does it say when you click into your invoice number? It should say something different than processing.

. Yep from Toronto Comic Con

Update, only 1 of 5 have entered grading. It was an expanded modern book. All the rest are modern.

How long does sig verification add again?

Just sent off a box of drek yesterday. I don't worry to much about the turn around times if I was more proficient getting stuff sent in I would always have books coming back. My day job keeps that from happening on a timely basis. Although without the day job I wouldn't have the money to pay CBCS for grading.

@JWKyle knowing what hides inside the infamous Longbox of JWKyle I'm sure your drek would be gold to us mere mortals.

It doesn't ...seem like...signature verification should add anytime to tiers that are already at 2-3 months. The signature experts cannot possibly be farther behind than the grading / encapsulation. I know previous discussions I've had with customer service have indicated that getting signatures verified would delay the fastest services, like 2 day modern or Quickstream or faster. But I was under the impression it didn't slow down "regular" submissions at all. I have a few in right now that were received May 3 or 4 that have signatures to verify, so I guess I'll know soon.

Unrelated to Darthlego's post, the listed TAT are just for grading. Books sent in for pressing are a completely different service with it's own (currently not actually known) turn around times. The listed TAT doesn't apply/start until the pressing service has turned the books over to CBCS for grading.

Similar comment to books turned in at shows. There is a (fairly long) delay in books turned in at shows getting into the computers and queued up for grading. The clock doesn't start until the books have been recorded into CBCS's work flow management system.

@IronMan - While it can take some time to put all books from a con into their system, they are recorded as being received the Tuesday after the convention.

@IronMan you might be right about VSP, just going off what I have always heard here.

As far as con subs, the official queue clock starts the Tuesday after the con, even if it takes longer than that to get the data into the computer.

So I have some books that were submitted at Megacon that have the wrong publisher and date on them, will that all be sorted before labels get created or easier to fix now?
Post 20 IP   flag post
COLLECTOR DarthLego private msg quote post Address this user
@bennyb86 They should be fixed by the graders, but keep your fingers crossed.

I sent books to get pressed and graded back in Feb, and three of them still haven't entered grading. I don't want to complain, but is that normal? Maybe some of you guys have waited that long? I emailed them a while back, and they said my books were still in the queue to get graded
