Those rivets. That font. SMH. Will be curious to see if the new labels get *any* positive feedback.

You guys at CBCS do great and I thank all of you for the R&D that went into what I can imagine to be a huge undertaking.
Thanks

Maybe they should have built a polling feature into the forums so they could get some actual user feedback before just implementing arbitrary changes.
You know, market research.

Who's responsible for these labels and the new logo? Is the designer out of touch, or is it a case of the client bastardizing the design?

Actually, on the label it does look okay (though I still like the other one more).
However, I do NOT like the font style for the grades. Reminds me of the Chicago Bears jersey numbers

Pluses:

Not as poorly redesigned as the controversial, almost universally disliked "new" CGC label (low hanging fruit).

Foil shield gives the design more gravitas without being overpowering.

The redesign avoids making the grade into a blinding neon beacon (more low hanging fruit).

Minuses:

Design is not as functionally attractive as one would hope to warrant such a change.

Various colors & design provide more confusion, not less.

Top and edge color strip is aesthetically unappealing; width makes modern books look smaller in holder and draws too much attention to the label.

Loss of simplicity and consistency.

What should've been done:

A thorough vetting process should've been conducted with suggestions being taken for at least six months before moving forward.

Barring changes in the holder design that would prevent the use of the older existing label, options should be afforded to customers who prefer the previous label.

These are just my opinions and only intended as constructive observations. Obviously, these views won't be shared by everyone. I'm not trying to start an argument or be unfairly judgmental of efforts made to improve products.

My biggest concerns about the new label are how holdered books look in my own collection next to other holdered books. That is a vanity that's important to me but may not be shared by others, much less those displaying books for sale.

I'll say the same thing here that I said about changing label designs on the other boards: it isn't about the label, it's about the book. A label should compliment the book in the holder without distracting from it and never create confusion. (2 cents)

All those poor OCD folks out there are going to have to send in all their books for reholder now so all the labels match.

I prefer CBCS for all my verifiable signed books...but now I prefer CGC's label. Sigh.

First world problems.

Collectors are all obsessive-compulsive to some degree, it kinda comes with the territory. No denial here.

They don't have OCD, they're just anal retentive.

You're never seen me fold back a comic to read it while eating Cheetos and smoking a cigarette.

I totally did this exact thing when I first started collecting, before I even knew there was such a thing as a comic shop.

Actually, yes it is as poorly redesigned. Perhaps worse.

New label smh. There are plenty of other things that we (your customers) would prefer you use your energies to improve. Also I hate the font for the grade.

I just watched the video for the new design and I think it looks pretty clean. I am not sure if I like the hologram as much though. Reminds me of Upper Deck cards from the 90's. I was not a fan of the original logo either. It had an uptight feel to it. Still 50/50 at this point.

Ribbits! ...Really? Books should be riveting, ...not labels.
