Why Comic Book Pressing is so Valuable

You're About to Learn the ONE Closely Guarded Secret That Can Double, Triple or Quintuple the Value of (Almost) ANY Comic Book in MINUTES!

We're changing things, and the "industry heavyweights" don't like it at all. And what we are about to reveal is such a closely guarded industry "secret" it's almost like a "license to print money".

It's called "comic book pressing".

Don't worry if you've never heard of it - most people outside the "comic book elite" haven't. Here's the Thing...

People who press comic books for a living naturally don’t want YOU to learn how to do it.

That would put them out of business!

Never mind ALL THAT.
We are happy to teach you the A-Z of pressing comic books!

There is a crapload of demand for pressing comic books. So much so that all the pro shops have a HUGE waiting list.

The reason for this demand is, you can literally double or triple your money with a competent press of a key issue. 

Some people make a living cracking out unpressed books from CGC holders, sending them in to be pressed, and getting an ‘upgrade’.

One Grade Improvement Can be Thousands of Dollars in Profit!
