After two weeks, I am getting anxious:

I don’t know how CBCS is saying 8-week TATs on new submissions when my last order has been in grading (Invoice does now say Labels) for 4 weeks (received first grading notification on 2/28).

13 days in labels. My birthday is this Friday but doesn't look like I will get any books by then. Order received October 30th.

15 days in labels for me. My 1st order from June was in and out of labels in a week I think. They must have a huge logjam there.

For the record my whole last order never updated on my dashboard, went from processing for 14 weeks to shipped.... you guys books probably farther along than your dashboard shows

Yeah that happened to me too. Had an order almost a year ago say quality control forever then I got the fedex email saying the order was on its way. The dashboard never updated until about two weeks ago. I got a “shipped” email and I thought it was this current order. Nope. The dashboard had finally updated months after I had the books in hand.

@HeinzDad - I mailed in a small order today (only 5 books), but I used fast pass on all of them to see how quickly they move.

I did my first fast pass last order and it is already entered and processed in a quarter of the time as my others. The old adage stands on this one as far as I’m concerned, “time is money”. I mean I’m not selling them but that’s what a customer pays extra for you know?

Well, my books moved to billing from labels and I have a balance due for some reason. I had my books screened for pressing, which they needed, and have already paid the pressing fee. I guess I'll try calling after work. Hopefully I'll have them in hand by the end of next week.

That could be a great sign @Karlhungus. Could mean your books graded much better than you think and therefor, it/they got bumped up to another pricing tier due to their value. It wouldn't be the first time that has happened.

The same way that you can be a millionaire and never pay taxes.

Ha I wish! I didn't send in anything too valuable for this order. My first order had Amazing Spiderman 101 graded at 7.5 and thought that might get bumped up, since it's so hot now because of the movie, but I wasn't charged anything extra.

I want to help clear some confusion. I know I explained a few pages back in this thread that just because an order was received the same day as a different order that they wouldn't move at the same time due to the volume of books being worked on. Not every order received from a convention would be worked on in one day. If we bring in 5000 Modern books from a show, the orders would be graded over the course of days, or even a couple of weeks. And that would be just for one show.

In relation to that, there seems to be a common misconception that books "should move into [insert department here] by now". That isn't how the queue of books is processed due to that same volume of books. Right now, the Modern tier is at 8 weeks turnaround, but that does not mean in any way that orders go straight from being received to grading. It could be a couple of weeks, or it could be 6 weeks depending on the flow of other tiers, but maintaining the 8-week turnaround is important to us.

Thanks for clearing that up 👍

Weird. I just got an email that my order is in grading. I got the same email for the same order on March 6. The invoice still says labels. Not sure if that's just an error in the system and the email got sent twice, or my books are being sent back to grading from labels. Anyone else had this happen?

My books are now in labels!


My dashboard now says billing (the pressing wasn't charged at the time I submitted my order) but the invoice still says labels, after 15 days.

Hoping it will move to shipping soon...


Just got the email to say my books are ready to be shipped!

So I called and the charge in question was not updated from the press. Now my books have moved to shipping! The person I talked to was very polite and helpful as always.

Handed over last Saturday at C2E2 and now in "submitting" [6 days]. That's significantly quicker than when I submitted at Wizard World Chicago 2018. Keep up the good work.
