Our Pre-screening services are designed to help you minimize any risk and uncertainty when it comes time to getting your comic graded. It is often very important to figure out what grade range your comics could obtain before deciding on whether to submit them to be professionally graded & encapsulated.
We offer a wide array of pre-screening services to help you get the most out of you collectible.
Except for restoration check and pre-screen for press, pre-screen service is only available on standard turnaround tier.
All RAW books are automatically screened just prior to press at no charge, and will only be pressed if there is a defect to remove.
Slabs are screened before removal unless client passes on the screen. Slab screen fee is $5, and case removal fee is $5.
A credit is given for all books that are not pressed, less $5 fee admin fee for forms
Pre-Screen for a minimum grade is $4 per book. (Can be screened for any grade, adds 5 weeks to turnaround time)
Comic Book Restoration Check is $10 per book. Many books are automatically flagged for restoration even if not selected.
Evaluating books for potential restoration is another pre-screen service. The best way to evaluate a book for restoration is to have it in hand for a detailed inspection. That way you can be fully informed on all the defects, processes to correct those defects, potential risk of certain processes and the anticipated results. The fee for this is $75, and covers time and shipping cost.
Unfortunately we cannot offer any guarantees that there is not any restoration in any given book as it is not always apparent or definitive
