Comic pressing and cleaning can remove minor defects such as small dents and dings, non color-breaking creases, dirt, waviness from moisture and most storage and spine rolls. Removing these defects can often raise the grade of your books and the results have been phenomenal.
Our exclusive in-house pressing service is done here in our facility by the best, most experienced presser in the industry, which means we won’t have to send your books to another location.
Modern Comic Pressing & Cleaning (1978-current) $13.00*
Standard Pressing & Cleaning (pre-1978) $25.00*
*Books with a fair market value of $5000 or more will be charged an additional fee for pressing services to be determined. Please contact us if you have a book valued at $5000 or more and you would like to have it pressed and cleaned. Pressing Service costs do not include grading. If you would like your books pressed but you do not want them graded, we will gladly do that for you.
We can also pre-sceen your books for pressing at no charge. All you have to do is make a note on your submission form. We will only charge you for the books we can improve.
Pressing and cleaning comic books is a very delicate process. Please be aware that our Pressing Service will add more time to your turnaround date when using the Express and Next Day Grading Services.
We will gladly press your signed books but please be aware that different materials with signatures or signatures done in paint pen may be adversely affected by the pressing process.
