Here is a thread from the CU boards where this topic is briefly discussed. See page 3, post 10.

If you don't want to read the thread (although it is entertaining), here is the post...

"beckett offered me the same deal that joe is talking about with psa. for 500 or more cards it $9 to encapsulate and $2 not to. for orders under 500, it was $11 to encapsulate and $2 not to. i would assume that psa is somewhere in that neighborhood, maybe a little cheaper for someone like 4sc."

So, my numbers weren't too far off, but the point is that the minimal cost is in the pre-screen and the larger cost would be the encapsulation.

I would still like to hear Earl or Michael address this type of service as it would definitley be something I (and apparently others too) am interested in.

I'm not sure if any of the three companies would ever make it an open public service. Depends a lot on their backlog at a current time to determine what volumes will be needed to make it worthwhile. If there is a low submission month, maybe the volume number could be lower. If everyone is full throttle, then the volume needs to be higher. So, a call by call basis I am sure.
