  1. Resurrecting this old thread as I have recent experience now ordering direct. I emailed first, got a shipping turnaround quote of 4-8 weeks, and told all orders are done via phone. I have some supplies to get me by for now so I'm fine waiting a bit. All the prices from retailers seem to be going up on E. Gerber products, and they can't keep them in stock! No idea if E. Gerber has also adjusted pricing or not, but I figured it was a good time to bite the bullet and buy in bulk. Anyway, I tried calling a few times throughout the day for three business days straight. One day it just we
  2. Just got an email from CGC stating there were so many books that Eastman did not even have time to sign them all... so they are taking books to him in 3-4 weeks to finish it up. : "Kevin Eastman Signing - There was an INCREDIBLE number of books submitted for Mr. Eastman -- so many so, he did not have enough time to sign them all, so we are bringing the books to him so they can be completed in roughly 3-4 weeks. " I'm sure with my luck my books are part of the delayed batch
  3. Thanks for the insight on my 1st in house signing! much appreciated
  4. I have some books in for the Eastman signing (which has been happening the last few days) that are still marked as Received. I'm a little nervous they forgot my books somewhere, but I'm sure I'm just being paranoid. Is this normal and books don't move to Scheduled for grading until after they are signed? Or is there another stop along the way during the signing phase? It's my 1st in-house signing, so I'm a noob at this part and again - probably just being paranoid.
  5. And now this ! https://www.ngccoin.com/news/article/8919/ccg-new-building/ "...In addition to hiring, CCG is expanding its production through multi-million-dollar investments in cutting-edge technology, including AI, robotics, advanced software and more." Will the encapsulation process be changed? Hmmm. Interesting things on the horizon for sure.
  6. I saw CGC posted a big hiring ad/video on facebook. Here's a link to all the positions they are looking to fill: https://recruitingbypaycor.com/career/CareerHome.action?clientId=8a7882525c3d7d8e015c6b03a47c11dc&fbclid=IwAR1k8QSbzpU-V8RgV88gbhyGyMtfuSFPxJ6qFRG6Oxj0NLJmRDbHi_N8CI8 32 positions in FL, 5 of them being specifically CGC and a bunch CCG. It seems like they just keep growing exponentially, and the pandemic has undoubtedly improved many aspects of their business. I'm sure they are making a TON on the in house signings too. It would make sense to hire when TATs get bogged

  12. Yep - this is my first in-house signing. Thinking it might be interesting to post here in case anyone else is curious how the TATs worked through the entire process. I have a 25 book modern sub on the way so once that shows up I'll add it in too.
