Not that I’ve found.  I’ve used several pressers but joeys always had the best results.

Do we really have to get into this discussion again ?  I think the OP is baiting here. Kudos threads for pressing services are frowned upon by our host. Can't we just respect that . Personally, I think Guido's has the BEST pressing services. Fast turnaround too !

Thank you for the recommendation. I just checked out her website. Seems quite legit! The 20% off CGC grading is a nice bonus.

'Is it wrong for me to want?'  Yes, but who cares.

'I think Bob is going to get in trouble hehe...' You are probably right. Bob seems to be getting into a lot of trouble lately. Boardies are humping away at the Report Post on Bomber-Bob. I'll never be a member of the Insider Club.

Yikes, thats their "after" shot?  Based on the texture of the cover it looks like they used a gerber fullback as the platen buffer directly on the book.  Heat obviously too high.  Looks like they steamed it instead of humidified on a book that doesn't require (shouldn't have) either.  Either didn't have the right press or didn't press it long enough, or both.  Revivable though right?

Here is what the inside of the book looks like. Each page look like this. With the exception of actually burning the book, everything bad you can do to a book by pressing it improperly, was done to this book.

I can only do my best. This book is very similar to one with severe water damage. Very hard to get out completely.
