Return shipping via USPS Mail

For completed submissions being delivered to a US PO Box, CGC generally ships via USPS Mail with insurance coverage of up to $100,000 per package procured by CGC. USPS Mail will generally be slower than FedEx, however. CGC is not responsible for the speed of shipping services. The rates for shipping via USPS Mail are the same as shipping via FedEx.

If an international submitter requests that USPS Mail be used, package(s) will NOT be insured and the risk of loss or damage during shipment is assumed by the submitter.

Shipping on one’s own account

Submitters wishing to use their own FedEx, UPS or USPS Express Mail account may still do so, as long as a completed Certified Collectibles Group® (CCG®) Shipping Information Form is on file. Please note that shipments on the submitter’s own account are not insured by CGC. To access the Shipping Information Form, click here.

For questions about CGC’s return shipping fees, please contact CGC Customer Service at [email protected] or 877-NM-COMIC.

Note: Additional charges may apply for extended or remote service areas, heavier packages, added items, etc. Please contact Customer Service if you are shipping collectibles valued over $100,000 per package to a US address or over $50,000 per package to an international address.
