Classics Inc. On-site Pressing at Wizard World Chicago

Posted on 8/7/2012

Classics Inc. will be offering on-site pressing at the Wizard World Chicago show, August 8–12.

With CGC’s on-site grading being offered at that show, collectors can get their comics pressed and graded in the same weekend. We first offered this service at last year's Wizard Chicago show with great success. This is the last show of the year we will be offering on-site pressing, so make sure to take advantage of this rare opportunity.

We will bring our full operation to the show, allowing us to press any comic you submit, regardless of age or condition. Space is limited, so make sure to submit your books to us as soon as possible.

SUBMITTING: We begin accepting pressing submissions Wednesday afternoon at approximately 12 p.m. at booth #521, next to CGC's booth. Most pressings will be finished and submitted to CGC by the end of the day following your submission. For example, the books you submit to us on Wednesday will finish and be submitted to CGC end of Thursday. Comics submitted to us by Saturday at 11 a.m. stand the best chance of getting graded by CGC at the show. We will also be accepting submissions for regular pressing throughout the weekend. Any submissions CGC is unable to grade by Sunday will be graded the following week at their office. All pressing invoices must be fully paid before we submit your books to CGC. Any grading fees will be billed to you separately by CGC, and they will require payment when you pick up your books from their booth.

SCREENING: Matt Nelson will be screening comics for on-site pressing at booth #521 on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, between the hours of 12 p.m. and 2 p.m. Books submitted at the booth any other time will be screened in the pressing room, and the results will be emailed to you. Pre-screens will enter the queue immediately after they are evaluated. Proscreens must be approved by you before we start pressing, so it’s important you give us your approval as soon as you receive it. Any rejects can be picked up at the Classics Incorporated booth.

Fees (based on estimated value after pressing): Modern = $20 '65-'74 = $40 Vintage (pre-1965) = $60 High-value $500-$1,000 = $80 High-value $1,000-$4,000 = $120 High-value $4,000-$10,000 = $200 High-value $10,000-$20,000 = $400 Value over $20,000 = 2.0% of estimated value, based on results Magazines = $40
