to get CGC SS the signature needs to be witnessed by a CGC rep or authorized dealer. Any unwitnessed signature submitted to CGC will probably get a Green label or a notation that someone wrote on the cover "persons name". There is a whole section and tons of info on the forums and internet about the process. I would suggest reading up on that. 

Best of Luck and Welcome to the boards :tink:

A key but oft forgotten part is that there needs to be a chain of custody for the CGC authorized witness that is kept. 

In some cases, the COA witness is ALSO a CGC authorized witness.  BUT if you took the book home (or technically out of site of the witness) after the signing, you will not get the CGC SS designation, even with a COA from someone who happens to be an authorized CGC witness.  So that same witness (possibly in conference with other witnesses or CGC employees) from the point of the signing would need to see that book safely (and untampered with) into the official custody of CGC.

From the main CGC page under CGC Grading is a link to Signature Series.  It gives you the information you need to answer this question.  Here is a link to it as well.

No.  Loose items are not slabbed with the comic. It's best not to send them to CGC at all, but I believe CGC does their best to return those loose items separately.
