Our Services

What is pressing?
Pressing is the application of pressure and other techniques to improve the overall appearance, collectability, and saleability of a comic or magazine.  Defects that can be reduced or eliminated entirely include: dents caused by a reader's finger and fingernails; bends and creases that do not break the cover's color, spine roll due to storage, reading, or simple aging; warping and waving caused by moisture (this can cause an appearance that looks like a ripple-cut potato chip).

Why do it to comics?
For all the obvious reasons: to improve the overall appearance by eliminating or reducing damage and defects and to increase its saleability.

What NOT to press

  • No comics or magazines with black mold anywhere on the covers or interior pages

  • No comics or magazines with brittle or loose pages
