How about a searchable Facilitator database with geography, services and reviews? Since many of us will now need to exclusively utilize their services, I'd like a convenient way to access them.

@JLS_Comics i think that is a great idea. To me that’s the hardiest part with me is finding someone that’s going to a particular show that I want a signature from. VS me sending it to someone and they hold it forever because I’m not sure when that person is rolling through.

If anyone need a falicatator I attend 12-15 shows per year. There are people on forum as well as FB that have used me and know how professional I am. I do signings with both celebrities and artist. I have a big signing coming up in April that I will be announcing next week. So if I can help just reach out

@comicsforme What makes you the judge of who is or who isn't a real collector?

There is a Facebook group I joined recently where people post asking for a facilitator or notifying the group that one is available for certain shows.

I only joined the group recently so U can't speak to quality yet but it does exist.

There is something similar on the CGC forums in regards to witnessing requests. Maybe CBCS should start a designated one here. I think JLS’s suggestion is a good one too.

So stupid question here, but just to confirm, we can still get a yellow label slab cracked, add a signature, and submit for a yellow label again so long as its cracked by an AW and the label/paperwork are submitted to CBCS, right?

IN-HOUSE PRESSING: Invoice submissions that need pressing services are to be done separately from submissions that do NOT require pressing.

Any ASP book submitted with 10 or more signatures will be charged an additional $5 processing fee. ASP books with 20 or more signatures will have an additional $5 fee added on again. The reason for this increase in processing fees is the length of time required to check each signature and date associated with the books.
.
The minimum submission of books from CBCS approved witnesses (Personal-Use AW & Facilitators) is still 5 per show (previously changed from 10, as the minimum).
.
Personal Use AWs are not allowed to have their books travel to other events to add signatures, unless the additional signatures are handled by a Facilitator, with proper documentation (multi-event forms).
.
· Facilitators & Personal-use AWs must submit all books within 10 business days of the last signing event, submissions after 10 days risk not qualifying for an ASP (yellow label) designation.
.
· Facilitators submitting books with incomplete submission paperwork or turning in books inside of window-cut bags, will have a $1/book surcharge added to that submission. Effective March 1st, 2018.
.
**Personal Use AWs must apply for AW status a least two weeks prior to the signing event.
.
Thank you

How does AW work if CBCS is at the convention?
Only asking as I have a diner with Steranko where 3 items can be signed -guessing CBCS won't be there so I have started the paper work to get AW status.
Would I still be able to then witness my own books the remainder of the convention and just hand books and paperwork to the CBCS table for return to the shop for grading?

Or would I maybe have AW status for the diner and then have to use CBCS for other books (wouldn't like that option as would probably be treated as 2 orders?? and then extra shipping??)

Thanks - already have AW paper work sent back with a few questions - just thought I would check here too!

Never done AW nor photo ops or diner etc. Usually just sketches or signatures or a few submissions here or there... a bit nervous..I kind of live thinking if the sky isn't falling that doesn't mean the ground isn't falling away under my feet

They can't if you all aren't at the con. I've never seen CBCS at Knoxville Comic Con here in Tennessee. With all due respect, this rule is punishing the honest collectors who attend many of these smaller cons while fattening the wallets of the facilitators. Thats not right.


Fanboy Expo?

Question:

I had met David Finch last weekend and was approved as an AW for the event. I've already sent my books in for grading however I had missed the portion that says David Finch has to have managers initials on the form to get a yellow label. I was not charged as I'm active military stationed here overseas.

So because of this am I now screwed on getting a yellow label for my books?

Speedforce, I had a similar situation last year. Reach out to Mark or Steve. What you may want to do is also send David Finch's people a note and let them know. Send a pic for memory as well. Hopefully they'll remember and give you the thumbs up

I've been looking but can't find the list of what people require what i.e. initials etc. - anyone have a link??

Oh wait...if maybe I opened my eyes!!! Found it! Looks like that is a few months old - any updates?

What's the appropriate method to submit for a yellow labeled art/commissioned piece that was done in Nov/Dec but only just picked up from the artist this weekend? Do you put the date information from when the piece was actually done, or when it was actually received from the artist?

Never submitted an art piece before so not sure the best way to go about it. Is it just treated the same as an witnessed signature?

Appreciate the clarification

@fivestar Contact Mark Roman of CBCS. His e-mail is in the OP of this thread. There is a form that the Artist should fill out. He can provide the form and instructions on how to submit the art.

Clarification on mechanics/steps
I have my approved AW form from Mr. Roman (check!) - when getting my books signed I inform the artists that I am AW for CBCS (check!) - do I have to have my on-line order form pre-filed/payed so if they want to initial the paper work they can? Or do I just get books signed then fill out order forms to send in with my books later?

Only asking as the # of books I get signed may change depending on how much I've spent on original artwork

Right now have between 4 and 8 for Steranko and 1 to 4 for Adams but if I buy a piece of art from Steranko then I may just have 4 or 5 for Steranko and 1 or 2 for Adams...

So perhaps a new section broken down by state of reliable and approved witnesses and their approval list of conventions they'll be attending or broken down by conventions. This could definitely be doable if broken down properly.

International Facilitators will now have 60 days. We hope this helps. Personal-Use AWs, still have 10 business days, to turn books in after obtaining signatures.
