Nice to see Consumer and Expanded taking less time.

Absolute_Zero you asked Steve - but if I understand your question correctly then the answer depends on if you are having all the books shipped back together at the same time to on postage costs. If that answer is yes, then books not being pressed will wait on those being pressed before the clock starts on grading. If you pay separate shipping charges, the books that are only being graded would be done sooner.

CBCS always splits pressing and non-pressing into separate invoices for that reason. They don't want books waiting in the vault for 3 months as other books catch up.

I got another batch waiting there that was accepted 2 weeks later after this batch. Those are not in grading yet so I'm a little curious if they receive them the weekend from Phoenix Comicon, or the date they entered them in the computer.

I believe they are considered received the next Tuesday after the con they were sudmitted at. Regardless if they showed up on your dashboard or not.

Just to give a timeline if you submitted thru a 3rd party, I turned my books into my LCS for yellow label on 5-6 17 and got them back on 8-15-17. So 14.25 weeks to get them back. With being said count couple extra weeks depending on drop off and actual received date. Very happy with what I got back. Will do a mail call thread soon. Waiting on my son to get home so he can do it with me.

I'm in purgatory! Its painful submitting more books and still not having the ones from the last con back ... looking at this chart, any day now they should be in grading though


BTW @SteveRicketts your crew today at Terrificon was AMAZING. We had all four kids with us, so we had to make 6 or 7 trips between the CBCS booth and Artist Alley (in between buying stuff for the kids to keep them appeased ). They were all very accommodating, kept our invoice open all day so we could get the signatures and sketches we wanted when we actually had the chance lol.

At the end of the day we were still missing two signatures but were out of time and the kids were DONE, had to go. One of your AWs offered to keep the invoice open and the get the missing signatures for us on his own time later (for less than a decent tip). A+ service, man. Second to none

@SteveRicketts - I'd like to second what @shrewbeer said. I just got back from Terrificon too. I dropped off 20 books for grading at CBCS, two that needed witnesses for signatures. The people at your booth couldn't have been more accommodating. Outstanding service!

I am in to week 12 since they were received, and I am 14 1/2 weeks since I submitted.
Meaning I'll get them back while I am out of town.

I am normally not worried, but I did do something stupid.

I used Office Depot Metallic Markers for my signatures





and I have no idea if the marker seeped through the pages since I just read they were water based!!!
Hopefully I'm good to roll.. BUT BUT!!! I don't want to submit 80+ books doing the same thing while I am at the con again and then find out they sweeped. I'm kinda scared to test out the results but don't want to buy a pack and waste the $ if they are gonna be no bueno. The waiting game.

yes you read that correctly. Got the books signed on a Saturday 5/6, LCS dropped them off at cbcs the following Wednesday 5/10, and they were picked up by my LCS on Wednesday 8/15. No fastpass as I was not in a hurry

3 1/2 months, that's brutal. Maybe once the con season is over the lag time will decrease.

When I sent in a 6 books batch via 2 DAYS USPS, I sent a money order with it, they were received right away, on the day they were recieved. In times past, it takes a bit to be input in to the system.
