Welcome to ComicPressing.Com -- An American Comics and Collectibles service!

 Due to time constraints, we are

NOT accepting any pressing

submissions at this time.

However, pressing tutorials are

still available for scheduling.

 

“Comic Book Pressing” is American Comics and Collectibles LLC's service that allows for varying defects found on comic books to be removed or diminished in severity, and for that comic book to therefore obtain a higher grade and a higher value.

CGC is the grading standard by which the comic book market operates. By using American Comic and Collectibles LLC's professional comic book pressing service, the value of a comic book can often rise exponentially.

A simple example is Incredible Hulk #181, which features the first appearance of Wolverine. A CGC certified copy in 9.2/NM-, has a fair market value of roughly $1,500. In using our "Comic Book Pressing" service, the defects found on that 9.2/NM- copy can be removed or improved upon and allow for a higher grade to be achieved upon resubmission to CGC for grading. Even a minor grade improvement from 9.2/NM- to 9.4/NM is an over 55% gain in value. If a 9.8/NMMT were achieved, that would garner a 900% gain in value!

  • Hulk #181 CGC 9.8/Near Mint/Mint = $15,000
  • Hulk #181 CGC 9.6/Near Mint+ = $4,250
  • Hulk #181 CGC 9.4/Near Mint = $2,350
We respect and strive for your commercial success. As such, we charge the same low, flat rates no matter the value of the comic book.
