I sent 4 books in to get pressed and graded in early February, it’s been 3 months and I expect it to be at least a few more so i’m thinking about adding fast pass but don’t know if it makes a difference to get it on the grading or the pressing as far as time goes.

Get it on pressing

Fast pass will be a wash out on pressing, the books have already been there for about 3 months.

Fast passing, at this point, will likely have a very minimal effect on the pressing TAT.

Fast passing on grading, is what I'd suggest.



Next time, have pressing and grading fast passed.

Get your pressing done at a 3rd party. They can usually get it done in a month or less. I use Josh Avery.
You also get a 20% dealer discount when you submit through them. In-house CBCS pressing is backed-up for months.

Avery is quite good as well. I have used him many times and have never been disappointed. The only down side is the shipping to him and then to CBCS, but the extra cost is comparable to a fast pass on the pressing.

Joey at CFPComics does not charge shipping to CBCS or CGC, for books that he presses for customers.

Joey subs books to both companies in person, weekly.

He also does excellent work and you get his dealer discount on books, as well as his volume discount.

That will change once CBCS moves to Dallas though...

Yeah, but not for books that go to CGC.

Good idea, what’s the easiest way to add it? Email?

Contacted them but was told they can’t add to existing invoices because of the move to Dallas. 😭

Is the order supposed to be pressed?
If so, PM me the invoice number and I'll see what I can do to help.

I’ll be submitting to CGC until the Dallas move & merger are complete, but it’s responses like this that consistently bring me back to CBCS.

It's less than SOP at the office right now. I'm just doing what I can to help customer service. They're on the front lines of this. 😄

But seriously, I can help with stuff like this in pressing. Normally it goes through customer service, but they're stretched thin.

Maybe that is why my items have been in billing for some time as personal cheque when I believe I provided credit card number. Would assume that I would have been reached out to but guess I have to make a call
