Does CGC always scan books as part of the submission process or is that a special request? How can I obtain a scan of a recently CGC'ed book?

Scans are sent only when they are requested by the submitter and are only sent to that submitter by e-mail. The submitter is welcome to share the scan with a future owner if they like.

Are ALL CGC books scanned during grading (and then they are available for a fee) or is the process only done when requested?

They are scanned when requested or if we choose to add them to our gallery. The only way to request a scan is with your initial submission, we do not sell scans alone.

I was wondering, for vintage age comics - 1960 and prior, does scanning have a detrimental effect? I would be concerned that the harsh light used during the scanner process can have a detrimental effect on fragile and old paper?

Comic Books are an investment, and in regard to your questions, scanning the comic book one time will not hurt the comic or fade the color. The comic is not under the scanner long enough for damage to occur. The protective encasing does provide a minimum amount of UV protection as well, as we do scan the comic while it is safely encased to prevent unnecessary damage to the comic. In addition, just for your general information, we only scan the front cover.

Is it possible to only request for certain slabs to be scanned on the one submission form?

Or when selecting the 'Imaging' option, you're automatically requesting for the whole submission to be scanned.

No, we can only scan the whole submission.

However, you could make two invoices (if it is not the Value Tier and you only have 15 books) with one for imaged books and one for not-imaged books and then request that both of the invoices be shipped back together (by noting that request on all copies of the submission forms).

Hi Gemma, Will CGC ever offer the option for owners to buy the individul scans of slabs after the fact? personally I don't have a scanner that fits the whole slab in a scan (especially not magazine size) but would like to get the full size scans for my registry sets. Some of my slabs were submitted through a 3rd party and I was never offered the option to get a scan, others were submitted by sellers and sold to me at a later date and no scan is available. Thanks
