That's what I've been saying on last 5 or six subs from Dec on. With Claremont signing currently being graded, hoping they will catch up on backlog before the Miller signing. Then after that, reign in the InHouse signings a bit to allow a return to "normal" TATs.

Just out of curiosity because this is my first regular sub to CGC, what are normal TAT's?

Based on my experience, there are no "normal TATs" as over the course of CGC's existence they have gone up, gone down, gone up, gone down, ... and while presently CGC is doing in-house signings before it was primarily comic-cons that lengthened TATs.

Thank you for your response, I'm hoping they go down at some point. I would like to submit more books.

You are very welcome and TATs will always change. Granted, whether they will ever be as low as they have been depends on many variables. Perhaps primary among them is that CGC hires, trains, and deploys (I love the word "deploy") more graders. However, will more graders be deployed (yes!) to grade comic books from in-house signings and at conventions or "regular" submissions?

Fingers crossed for both!! either way they're making money off of us.xD

I really don't want to go to the graders across the street. :sick:

Why does CGC have private signing boxes come to the same PO Box as their "regular" grading? I know its probably the same person taking the stuff from the PO, but if they added a second PO box the packages would already have gone through one filter before arriving at their office. I feel bad for CGC mail room staff.

This is why they require InHouse subs have artist's initials on outside of box (same for Express & Walkthru tiers) so they sort those first from the rest of the "scrubs."   

I would assume that and fact the InHouse are a temporary(?) reaction to closed cons doesnt justify any two way split in operations.

TAT'S went up again.....:x

This is really a joke. So by the time CGC opens the mail, marks received, then grades, MFT is now about 2 months.
