*This is the current estimated value of your comic. This is not the value you estimate after we work on it. If you are unsure of the value, an advanced search on Ebay will allow you to look under sold listings.
*If you are in the Raleigh area, you may drop off and pick up your books at any Ultimate
Comics location. Please make sure all your submission paperwork is included, failure to
do so will put you in the back of the queue.
We only press and clean comics that follow CGC’s grading size restrictions. CGC will not certify collectibles that are too large for its holders. This includes:
*Yes, we do press foil covers. The older books like the 1993 Venom Lethal Protector book or Amazing Spider-Man 365 are foil books we press almost weekly. We also press modern foil books. Due to the cardstock cover that is often on foil books, they do not manipulate as well as a typical comic book but they do improve.
*Yes, while we do not press graphic novels, we do press prestige format books. Examples of a prestige format book are the classic Frank Miller Dark Knight Series. Due to the cardstock cover on these books, they do not manipulate as well as a typical comic book but they do improve.
*No, you will need a unique Submission for each turnaround time.You can however ship multiple submissions to us in one box.
– CGC prices and turnaround times can be found here:
– CBCS prices and turnaround times can be found here:
*Yes, you can write down the CGC Label you want on a specific book in the notes section of your submission. Note that CGC ships custom label books back separately than others, so you will have more than one shipping fee from CGC if all are not custom labels.
*We can only crack out Yellow CGC Signature Labels when we are sending them to get an additional signature. This will keep the old signature valid when we crack it out of the case to press/clean and send to a signing for an additional signature.
*Yes, we write the appropriate Tier or signing initials on all boxes going to grading companies. We are very experienced with this and have it all covered.
*No, we absolutely do not offer CGC or CBCS updates. The last email you will receive from us is when your books ship to the grading company. CGC will ship to you with signature confirmation when the books have completed.
*CGC sends back each Tier in its own box. For example, if you send 3 Unlimited Value comics, 12 Modern comics and 2 Vintage Tier comics, you will receive each group as it is completed and shipped out. In the above example, you would receive 3 different boxes from CGC.
*Yes, if you use our CGC account, you will receive a 15% discount at CGC. The CGC invoice does not say 15% discount but you can see discount is applied to the totals.
*If you are using our CGC account, we require that we work on 80% of the books you send. We do not have a limit if you are using your own CGC account. Shipping and handling fees will be applied.
*When you check out on our website, you have only paid for our services. We use the credit card
form info to fill out your CGC paperwork/billing for you.’
