Katcomics. No I believe he meant in total not adding 8 to 10 weeks. Just for the ones you are pressing. The others will be about 6 weeks

CBCS Pressing SteveRicketts private msg quote post Address this user
I'd say that's a good estimate, but I hope to get it a little more improved as the weeks go on.

8 weeks for pressing has been the default unless you fast press. And then it gets graded.

@KatKomics Oh man that's enough to make me nervous for you!
My order has been in since May 12th. I'm enjoying the TATs. Good luck for getting yours before you leave.

So I had asked on the forum earlier what I could expect for turnaround on 6 comics (all of which are being pressed). I think I forgot to mention that several have authentic sig verification and two are pending verification. Ultimately, between the signature verification and the pressing, how long am I looking at for TAT? If I have them back by Halloween, I'll still be really happy.

Thanks for any insight you regulars may have. I'm a casual submitter who really doesn't know what to expect from the process.

@Paint_Monk Current TAT is 6 weeks (no Press) add press is 8 to 10 weeks? - not sure how long for verification, but I would say around 14 to 16 weeks total maybe 1 or 2 extra for the signatures??

Thanks! I hope you're right. I just don't want to be waiting until Christmas for six books to come back. It just bugs me at the moment that these were submitted at a con on June 1st and they aren't even showing in my dashboard yet as received.

@Paint_Monk wouldn't worry too much - my February submission took almost a full month to show on my dash. My non-press books were in my hands in 8 weeks plus 1 or 2 days (TAT was 8 at the time). My press books are in grading right now - week 18 (so 8 week TAT plus 8 to 10 for press) - with luck this week or next I should have them home again?

Did you pay for Fast Pass? I submitted 5 modern books on February 20 with pressing, VSP on 4 of the books, and Fast Press for all 5.

Just curious to see if I'm in the same time frame or if VSP is really adding that much time to the process.

@lawguy1977 No fast pass/press but also no signatures - maybe VSP adds a few weeks??
Feb 17th they were handed over.

I trust CBCS a lot and when I talked to Steve this weekend he assured me that he has been catching up on things and pressing is going to move much faster now that they have improved things at CBCS! So donโ€™t worry be happy ๐Ÿคช๐Ÿ˜œ and donโ€™t forget to mail call when they arrive ๐Ÿ˜‰!Quote:

Hey guys, new to getting comics graded, and I sent my first order in May 15. Its been on "processing" for three weeks now.Does the dashboard change to grading, labeling , shipping? Or process straight to ship? Just wondering. I check every day and it doesn't change, I'm just super excited and wishing for that 6 week tat.

@Lowmanfett Welcome to the club!
Your dashboard will say Processing the whole time until Shipping.
But if you click on the Order # then you get your secondary screen and that will say where it is at in the process. It will say "Submitted" the majority of the time. But once it moves to "Grading" then your excitement will build. If you click on your invoice, it will say "Labels". It will sit there for a week or less then it will go to QC (Quality Control) but you will probably miss that step as its only there briefly.

But then it will be in "Shipping" status.

Once here you will get a small panic over why you don't have a tracking/shipping info and your grades yet. This step means its on their dock waiting to be packaged. You will get an email at this step.

After a day (sometimes less) it will go to "Completed" status. This is the one you are waiting for. You will be able to view your grades and they will email tracking information. Someone has to be home to sign for the package to be delivered. Heads up on that now. Once you get your package, take some pics and put them on the board and we will all hoot and holler over the grades and the books. All while you are plotting to send in your next batch and where that money is coming from in your budget.

Enjoy!

@Lowmanfett you can also click on the actual PDF invoice and that will have status updates.....They reallllllyyyyyy need to streamline this process to have just one place instead of 3 to find order status updates

June of last year???

Nope, sixteen days ago. Hoping they show up in my dashboard soon, but I'm thinking they'll be in pressing for 6-8 weeks. Will they enter them in at the pressing stage, or will I have to wait until they're received in TX for grading?

Collector KatKomics private msg quote post Address this user
@Paint_Monk it will say pressing (at least on the actual PDF invoice - mine did at least) - took a loooong time for mine to change status but after pressing they zipped along pretty fast.

Heck, I'm just waiting for them so show up in my dashboard as "received." As of tomorrow, it'll be 3 weeks to the day they were submitted and CBCS doesn't even have an order # for me in the dashboard.

A rep today essentially told me to "relax" and they'll be in the dashboard soon but it's taking awhile.

My first submission - when they were much busier - was in my dashboard within 7 days of my submission at the con. Just nervous, I suppose, since this batch included literally ALL my key issues.

CBCS's pressing service is in Florida. The books are graded in Texas. I've not used the pressing service. But I believe it would be a reasonable guess that tracking information on the web portal might be a bit lacking UNTIL the books have been pressed and transferred to the grading facility.

This is really little different than CGC - and their pressing service is in-house and onsite. You don't see much information on the books while in pressing. It's when they are on the grading side information is on the web portal.

Steve Ricketts is on the message boards here (scroll up and you'll see a post from him). Just message him to confirm he has your books. And then as the rep said, relax. After they are pressed they will transfer to Dallas TX for grading. Then they will be in the Dashboard.

Addition: If CBCS has already confirmed they have your books, don't obsess over the dashboard. They are the pressing location. They will show up when they are at the grading location
