@Jason_hendon My own personal experiences with CBCS have been positive. Bear with the TATs. They are long but I've always been happy with the results.

Thanks have a few books I want pressed for sure. Definitely okay with waiting for books as I know they’ll be in good hands. Also gives me time to finish display cabinet. Still pretty new to collecting so the experience is exciting.

They are graded better than anyone else out there, and the cases display very nicely. My PC books are all CBCS.

Set your expectations very low for the rest of the business.

Good Luck with your submissions. CBCS has 3 of mine since March 20/18. Hope you don't mind the wait.

The TATs are fine. People got surprised with the move and that caused delays. But waiting is the toughest part. I’ve sent 3 orders in and have been extremely happy with results. Just sent in my 4th order.
Go with CBCS all the way.
CGC has a reputation of having what looks like color bubbles in the sleeves when they are done. And PGX is very shady and doesn’t hold a high regard in community.
CBCS will always have my business.

@billkruser5 have a few CGC books and that’s one of the reasons CBCS was chosen over them. (Friend gave me savage she-hulk 1 9.4. I’ll end up getting it slabbed by CBCS down the road.) Also reading how great the people at CBCS are makes it a no brainer. First submission will be a rather large one. Sending 20 books. Thanks for your feed back

Just be aware, you probably won't see your books again until next year.

Fast pass is a must at the moment if you care about getting your books in a timely manner.

Are we not allowed to mention other pressers now? I thought we just couldn't discuss the process.

@Jason_hendon Do our research on TAT's and other issues before making your submission. This way you are educated and have a reasonable expectation. I made a submission last fall when TAT's were also bad, but I knew it before I made the submission and wasn't in a rush to get the books back as they were from and for my personal collection. Thus, I wasn't concerned or upset with the TAT. I've used CBCS for pressing and have always been happy with the results. But again, be aware that it will add significantly to the TAT as opposed to them not being pressed.

Just go in with a reasonable expectation and I don't think you will be disappointed.

I was wondering that myself. I know that I've seen a few mentioned on other threads. Since it was brought up on this one and I have a few books that need it and TAT's being what they are, I thought I might try a 3rd party.

We're allowed to talk about CGC, I don't understand why we can't discuss 3rd party options for pressing?

I recall that the pancake recipe was forbidden. If we can't mention 3rd party pressing services, I'll tell you which pressing service I don't use. It's the one with the ridiculous TAT.
Love your grading service though!

CBCS Pressing is world class and so is their Grading. Their TAT are an issue right now but if you're willing to wait you'll get back a superior product. If these are spec books that are time sensitive then maybe send them across the street (newton rings? no inner well?). if it's for your personal collection, CBCS is the only place.

Honestly, I prefer CFP Comics for my pressing needs. CBCS pressing has been fine the few times I've used it. The vast majority of books I submit are for the PC.

Are CGC TAT better? I still have yet to decide what company to go with.

As I've stated before....

CBCS = grading accuracy and clarity
CGC = gift grades and rainbows

Cgc comics usually sell for more. At least in the comics I have followed.

Since this is your first submission, please make sure someone is home to sign for your books! When CBCS is done and ships back to you they require a signature. I had to wait an extra day for my first shipment due to not being home, it was an extra ounce of torture. Since my mother is retired, I have the books sent to her house so avoid this.
Just another thing to keep in mind.

This true for now. Parity is an eventuality.

Hi.

I have submitted several lots to CBCS ln the last two years without any problems.

The usual turn around time was quoted as about 16 weeks and to be fair took about 18/20 weeks with which I have no problem with. One just has to be patient. It is what it is and one just has to chill and be aware that your submissions are going to be returned in about 6 months or more

Apparently, they were uprooted by a hurricane from Florida to Texas and are still looking for the Yellow Brick road to satisfaction.
