Press & Clean Comics

WHAT IS COMIC PRESSING AND CLEANING? Pressing: can remove mirror flaws or defects such as dents, bends, rippling due to moisture, non-color break stress. Spine rolls. Pressing uses heat, pressure, and humidification when it is beneficial to the book to remove these issues.

Before starting any clean and press project, we analyse the collectible and identify all flaws. Those are then categorized under “fixable” and unfixable flaws. Like this we secure the best result to push the grading to the highest possible result. 

All cleaning and pressing are done internally on a professional way. 

Old or young books

We continuously study the art of printing comic books. This means we adapt our techniques on the different types of paper used in the industry. Depending on the paper used, the ink or the binding technique we switch the pressing and cleaning process. Going from cold and dry pressing to hot and humidity chamber regulated moistening of the collectibles. 

Bumb that grade!

Our team can identify the possible flaws of your collectible and correct them to increase your grade in a new submission.
