We are at booth # Will be posted when we know
Unlike other service providers, our fees include everything with no hidden charges.
Deadline to get books to us: October 10th. We have gone to post signature pressing which adds 6-8 weeks to the return time. This allows us to present the book for grading in the best possible condition after the artist handles it.
If you would like to bring your books to the show for signatures, we cannot guarantee a signature because it depends on when the guests will be there, so please email us in advance so we can estimate what time the books must be dropped off to us.
Please fill out this submission form to send with your books. Payment can be made via Paypal or check.
If paying by Paypal please send funds to email@example.com

The fee covers:
Artist Fees(we cover the fee up to $3.00)
Shipping, packing and Insurance
Prepping and Paperwork
The only extra fees are if the artist charges more than $3.00 you will owe the difference.
If you want additional artists to sign the books, CGC has instituted a $5.00 per additional signature fee for grading so each additional signature will be $5.00 plus whatever the artist charges.
Cost for modern books (1980 to today) is $69.00 plus whatever the artist(s) charges us to sign the books after $3.00 (we will cover the fee up to $3.00). If you would like them fast-tracked cost is $81.00 per book.
Cost for pre-1980 books worth less than $300.00 is $82.00 per book plus whatever the artist(s) charges us after $3.00 (we will cover the fee up to $3.00). Books on this tier will ship Economy Fast-track (we will cover this fee). If you would like them fast-tracked cost is $94.00 per book.
Cost for pre-1980 books worth more than $300.00 but less than $1000.00 is $135.00 per book plus whatever the artist(s) charges us after $3.00 (we will cover the fee up to $3.00). These books will ship Standard Mail.
Cost for books worth more than $1000.00 but less than $3000.00 is $195.00 per book plus whatever the artist charges after $3.00 (we will cover the fee up to $3.00). These books will ship Express Mail.
Cost for books worth more than $3000.00 is 3.5% of fair market value and whatever the artist charges us after $3.00 (we will cover the fee up to $3.00). Minimum charge for this level is $225.00. These books will be on the Express tier.
Fees include prepping the book, CGC fees, shipping and insurance to CGC and back to you.
If you have never seen how we prep the books for signing, you would be impressed. Each book is protected with 3 backing boards and one opening cut exactly where you want the artist to sign. This minimizes the chances of damage to the book during signing. We also request the artist to sign in an appropriate color that will show the best. (They don’t always sign in the color we want but we try).
Fees do not include pressing. Email for details on this service.
We will also get you celebrity signatures at this show. Cost is higher than comic artists due to long lines and limited time these celebrities sign at these shows.
For CGC Signataure Series add $25.00 to your fees plus what the celebrity is charging.
We also will get photo’s signed for you.
If you just want a signed photo, cost is $25.00 plus whatever the celebrity charges.
All books are to be mailed to :Comics To Astonish Inc.
