Anyone have any tips on removing mailing labels from Magazines before sending in? I have done a fair amount of googling, but nothing seems definitive. Any advice? Thanks!

I think I'd let sleeping dogs lie.

Agree, I don’t think there is a good way to remove the mailing labels

Submitting mags to CGC? Don't :censored: do it, TAT's just went up again to 221 days, what a absolute take, it was nowhere near that when I sent mine off in February, talk about moving the goal posts. :mad:

You sure about that? hm Magazine TATs have been over 200 working days for quite a while now.

Not since February though, if it was 200+ back then I wouldn't have bothered.

I was hoping to have them back in time  for Christmas, but at this rate my hopes are diminishing. :violin:

Christmas is a real possibility. In 2023. 

Up another 9 days, so you are most likely correct, what a shower of :censored:,s, I actually emailed them to send my books back and refund me because I was so pissed, but got the generic tripe usual response.

Why are the TATs so long for magazines? 247 days right now on the Services page for modern and economy with no guarantees.

Is the backlog really that bad?  Does it take that long to hire and train people to reduce delivery times?

My guess is that since tiers like Standard, Express and Walkthrough are a higher priority, most mags get pushed onto the back burner. Also, training new people to grade magazines can be a difficult process, because most graders are only familiar with grading regular comics. And since the magazine graders are often quite versatile, they usually have to grade a wide variety of other books as well...all of which leads to longer turnaround times for magazines.

It still baffles me how I can send in 10 moderns that are entered into the system on the 30th of November and they are on their way back now, yet the 12 mags I sent in February are still SFG.  :wavingwhiteflag:

They seem to add 5 days on a week.
