CCS On-site Pressing at Wizard World Chicago

Posted on 7/9/2013

Bring your collectible comic books to Wizard World Chicago, Aug. 8–11, to have them pressed on-site. Be sure to get your books in early because CCS can only accept a limited number of submissions.

CCS is offering on-site comic book pressing at Wizard World Chicago Comic Con, Aug. 8–11. In conjunction with CGC’s on-site grading at that show, collectors can get their comics pressed and graded in the same weekend. We will bring our full operation to Chicago, 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.

On-site pressing tier pricing:

  • Modern (comics 1975–present, valued US $200 or less) — US $20
  • Economy (comics valued US $500 or less) — US $50
  • Standard (comics valued US $1,000 or less) — US $80
  • Express (comics valued US $3,000 or less) — US $120
  • WalkThru (comics any value) — 2.5% FMV, min. $200


We begin accepting pressing submissions Wednesday afternoon at the CGC / CCS booth. Comics submitted to CCS by end of Friday stand the best chance of getting graded by CGC at the show, but if space and time allows, we will continue to accept submissions Saturday for on-site pressing. We will also accept submissions for regular pressing throughout the weekend. Any comics submitted at the show and pressed on-site but not graded by the end of the show Sunday will be immediately graded at CGC the following week and shipped back to you at our cost. For information on CGC on-site grading, click here.

All pressing invoices must be fully paid before your comics can be picked up at the CGC / CCS booth. All CGC fees will be billed to you separately. Matt Nelson, president of CCS, will be on the show floor at the CGC / CCS booth Friday and Saturday from 12–1 p.m.

Collectors Society members and dealers: Get a head start on your submission and use the CCS online submission form, then mail your books before Wizard World Chicago for show pick-up. Books must be received by Monday, Aug. 5 for on-site pressing. (Tier pricing will be adjusted for show fees.)

Not attending?

If you can't make it to the show, but have comics you'd like to press and grade on-site, you can mail your books to CCS the week before. All submissions must arrive at CCS by Monday, Aug. 5. Your comics will be brought to the show for pressing and grading, then mailed back to you from our office the following week. Please contact us at or by calling 855-227-1711 for shipping details.
