UV-Resistant Acrylic Cases
CDA offers a high-quality UV-Resistant acrylic case to protect your items from
light damage. This material is the highest quality material on the market and is
used by museums to protect very important articles. The material is UF-5 material
and it blocks over 99% of harmful spectrums of light.
There are 2 ways to get your submission encased in UV-Resistant Acrylic:
- Submit your item under any tier and pay an additional UV Upgrade fee.
The fee differs depending on the item you submit. The UV Upgrade fees can be found
on the Pricing and Tier Codes page.
- Submit your item under the Archival Tier - UV-Resistant Acrylic is included
in the Archival Tier submission cost. In addition to a UV-resistant case,
the Archival Tier offers the fastest turnaround time possible for an CDA submission.
When we receive your item(s) they are automatically put in the grading room for
immediate inspection. The turnaround time for Archival submissions is 1-6 business
days (depending on the type of item) - faster than any service previously offered
The price for the Archival Tier depends on the Fair Market Value of your figure.
The price is 2.5% of the Fair Market Value or the listed price, whichever is greater.
Fair Market Value can be determined by looking at a price guide or on eBay for
similar items. There are minimum costs associated with each Archival Tier submission
depending on the size of the item. The maximum price for any Archival Tier submission
is $250. The detailed price guidelines can be found on our
Pricing and Tier Codes page. The Archival Tier is
required for any standard-size item that is worth $1000 or more.
