Important Notes:
Screening fee is charged only one time if the comic is submitted for both Pressing and Restoration Removal.
Turnaround times are approximate and not guaranteed. Estimated turnaround begins on the day books are received by CCS.

In the event that CCS, at its sole discretion, determines that the fair market value is higher than the value stated by the submitter, CCS will move the comic book to the appropriate higher tier and the additional fee will be the responsibility of the submitter.
