PGX’s grading is based on the PGX Grading Standards developed by PGX and the opinions of the PGX Grading Team and does not guarantee complete acceptance in the marketplace. The assigned grade represents our opinion, as grading is subjective. A restoration check is made on every book that comes through PGX. Every effort is made to detect restoration, but we do not guarantee the result. The PGX Holder can be safely opened if the owner wishes to remove the book. Please note that opening the holder does void the certification. PGX cannot be held responsible for any damage to any book that is not in PGX’s possession. If you would like instructions on opening the holder, please contact us.
The PGX Holder was engineered so any tampering will be readily noticeable. For certification to be valid, the PGX Holder needs to be fully intact with unbroken seals and holographic security stickers.
To ensure the maximum in protection for your comic books, proper storage is advised. Keeping your books in a non-active, dark, humidity and temperature controlled area is optimal. Keeping them away from extremes of light, temperature, moisture, and any other possible hazards will help guarantee the long life of comic books in the PGX Holder.
Once a book has entered the grading process the full cost of the service is realized. The encapsulation of each book in an inner and outer holder is an additional service provided at no charge for each book.
International orders are insured for what is on the submission form while the books are at the PGX facility but cannot always be insured for the same amount when being returned.
Orders that have not been paid for and have been held for one month past the expected ship date of the order will begin to incur storage fees. Storage fees will be $100 per month or 3% of the total value of the books per month retroactive to the date the books were due to ship. If three months pass without full payment books will become property of PGX and will be liquidated to recoup grading and other fees.
