I used CCS to press high-ticket books on which I was having resto removed, and they did an excellent job.

For other less expensive books, CCS was a little pricey and slow for me. JMHO.

Not recommended.  Maybe they treat more valuable books better, but I recently submitted a lower value ASM for my PC and it received the following grader notes AFTER being "pressed" by CCS:  "light crease full right of front cover" and "moderate creasing to cover".  How you can professionally press a book and it still have moderate creasing is a mystery.  The whole process of cleaning/pressing and grading took about 5 months.  Glad that during that time I bought my own press and have been doing it myself.  My two cents...

Pressing doesn't remove color breaking creases.
