    5 star review  I cannot say enough great things about Josh and the work he does cleaning and pressing. But he goes above and beyond that with amazing communications and honesty. He takes great care with your books as if they were his own. Very knowledgable and honest. One book I sent needed a lot of help, Josh honestly said that it has binding issues and may separate (old DC 100 page book). I told him to proceed anyway, not only was he so meticulous and gentle on the book when I got it back I was blown away simply amazing. Getting ready to send my second batch of books for cleaning and pressing in the next few days. If you haven't used Josh yet you should. Great work, great communication and just a really nice guy on top of it all.

Best Pressers in the Industry #1: Maximize Your Comics’ Potential

If you collect comic books, you have heard about the art (and science) of pressing comic books. This is the act of taking a comic book that has existing wrinkles, folds, creases, waviness, non-color breaking ticks or damaged in a way that makes the comic book no longer flat, and basically making it lay flat again….

Social Media Comic Book Sales Soar During Pandemic

After three hours of listing off issue numbers, condition and collectible significance of more than four dozen comic books, Brighton resident Matt Marlin is exhausted, but there’s no rest (and seemingly no sleep) for the ravenous comic book community

Please stop using packing tape on the books!
I provided a video on this website on how to pack books, and how to make tabs with blue painters tape.
I'm not sure what else I can do to get everyone to use the painters tape on the actual books.
Packing tape is for the packing only, and should never be anywhere near the comic books. (This book was ok after unpacking , no damage, that customer was lucky)
