Get Your Books Graded in Half the Time
CGC Launches Fast Track Service July 16, 2007
On Monday, July 16, CGC is launching Fast Track, a rush service available in conjunction with Modern, Economy and Value Tiers. For a service charge of $8 per book added to regular tier fees, CGC will cut the turnaround time in half. Modern Tier Fast Track submissions will be graded and shipped within 10 business days, and Economy and Value Tier submissions will be completed within 20 business days.
A few important notes. This service is being implemented on a trial basis and will be available for submissions submitted between July 16, 2007 through September 1, 2007. It is not available for Standard, Express or Walkthrough submissions. Invoice tracking methods have been upgraded to allow CGC to offer Fast Track without having an impact on turnaround times for other services. In the rare event that a Fast Track submission does not meet its stated turnaround time (above), the $8 per book fee will be rebated to the submitter. Fast Track is also available for Economy and Modern Tier Pre-Screen submissions.
"We’ve always received requests to rush submissions. Now we have a systematic way to meet this demand. Fast Track adds new dimensions to the way collectors and professionals can use our services," comments CGC President and Primary Grader Steve Borock.
To request this service using regular paper CGC submission forms, simply write FAST TRACK prominently on the submission from and add the $8 per book charge to your invoice total. Note that new printed submission forms have a Fast Track box, which should be checked when this service is requested. When using the online submission from, select the appropriate FAST TRACK tier from the pull-down menu. Fast Track service requests apply to all submission on a particular invoice, and therefore must be submitted separately from books being processed at normal turnaround times.
Following this trial offering, CGC will conduct a review of the fast track service. At that time, we will elect to extend the trial, discontinue its use, or add it permanently to our service roster. For questions about submissions and services, please contact CGC at 1-877-NM-COMIC or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
