There's a lot of people out there who think they know about pressing and cleaning high end comic books, but none have more experience or talent than Josh Avery. I've had books pressed by others in the past, but Josh now does all my books. When I had him crack a few slabs to press and resubmit a few books, he consistently delivered improved grades for me on those books that had been previously pressed by a less talent pressmen. He's also fantastic to do business with, let's you know up front if there will be any issues pressing or cleaning a particular book, and offers sound advice based on years of experience.
I have used Avery Pressing for pressings, cleanings and signatures. I have never had a better experience with anyone else. He's extremely professional, respectful and quick to answer any questions. I'll never use any other pressing service again!
