Why should you press your comic book?
Comic book pressing often reduces or removes defects such as dents, bends, non-color break creases, spine rolls, warping, rippling caused from moisture damage, bent overhangs, amateur pressing damage, and similar defects. Removing these defects will usually increase the grade of the book, which translates into increased value. It is not uncommon for a book to increase 3 grades from pressing (i.e. 9.2-9.8). For example, if a Hulk 181 in 9.2 is pressed into a 9.8, the value has increase by thousands of dollars. Even if it only goes up to a 9.4, the value has increased over a thousand dollars. This isn’t exclusive to high grade books—we had an Avengers #1 go from a 2.0 to a 3.5 which increased its value substantially.
We have extensive experience pressing comics of all era’s, especially the often fragile and very valuable Golden Age books – don’t put your valuable items in the wrong hands and insist on using only professional expert comic book pressers like us!
