What is Comic Book Pressing?
Comic book pressing is a process that removes slight non-color-breaking defects in a comic book to improve the appearance of comic books to potentially increase the look and grade of a comic book.
What type of comic books would benefit from Comic Book Pressing?
Comic books that have bends, dents, folds, light creases, impressions or waviness that does NOT break color of the book.  Pressing can improve the appearance of water damage on a comic book where the fluid has NOT stained the book.
