Sending items for Signatures...
I’ve mostly avoided it. Free time at home is very limited and while a signature may not take a lot of time,.. emails, unpacking, unbagging, re-bagging, re-packing, trips to the post office, etc… do take time.
Since I've recently been taking orders through the SHOP page on this site, I'm willing to try the "SHOP model" for signatures as well. The SHOP model if you're not already aware is... requesting a minimum product order of $50 plus postage so that I'm not working to send out just one or two prints/items at a time.
My signature at shows continues to be $5 per, and I'll honor that from home as well. So a minimum signature order would be 10 signatures plus additional Priority Mail postage costs.
If you only have a couple of books and want to add a few prints or other items to your order, a combination of signatures and SHOP items is possible. Link over to my SHOP page to view the available prints or items. Then let me know in your email (use the Contact link in the main menu) how you would like to combine comics and SHOP items.
Things to note...
Remove the tape! If you’re still taping your bags, remove the tape so I don’t have to deal with it. The resealable comic bags with the adhesive strip are fine.
Send as you like, but I prefer to return your items using Priority Mail.
You’ll be sending books so be aware of your package weight. Shipping starts at a minimum $15 charge. If your books are over a few pounds, check the online postage calculator, and include appropriate postage with your payment if higher than $15. I would be return shipping from zip 30339 and remember to estimate for Priority Mail. **Important: Calculate at the “Use your own packaging” option. USPS Flat Rate boxes may be cheaper but those things are paper thin and while I can throw your books in one of those, figure they’ll arrive at some level of mangled.
If you're sending a large number of comics and want to add prints to your order, note that I send prints in a flat envelope and while I may be able to add up to six or so regular comics to the envelope, more comics than that or oversized books may require a separate package — resulting in two packages and two shipping charges.
If you're a graded books collector, and want me to ship your signed books to CGC or CBCS, graded books are $15 per signature. I can connect you with a CGC or CBCS facilitator who will who will let you know the current grading fees and you can decide from there. You would pay all grading costs directly to the facilitator. Signature costs will still be payable directly to me.
Remarks?... Ask, but time is very limited here so I may not always be able to say yes. Remarks would add $60 per book, same as convention pricing.
If you have questions, email. I'll try to update this page from time to time as needed.
