Roll Bend Help

Bought one of my big ISOs recently. After picking it up from the framer the other day, noticed there is a pretty decent roll bend. Guess the glass just brings it out more. Regardless, any help would be appreciated...I find it super distracting...What's the best way to get out or will it just fade gradually with time?? :help:

It needs professional flattening. It may lessen over time in the frame, but it'll still be noticeable.

Can any reputable framer do that? What's the typical cost?

I'd contact poster mountain. Everyone around here seems to use them with good results. I'd expect to pay around $100 for a flattening.

Yep, emailed John and its $100 so I guess it's off to PM. I'd rather just have them do it than risk messing it up further by myself. Thanks for the help.

Once they fix it you won't be able to roll the print anymore correct?

They definitely advise against ever rolling them from what I am reading. I certainly have no plans to let it be rolled again after I ship it to them. It's going straight from their flat shipper back into the frame.

Might not fit in that frame anymore after the "procedure" is done.

Don't think it should affect it that much. You heard of similar situations?

Dimensions can increase slightly after it's flattened. Maybe it will fare better than Mondo posters and their shitty stock though.

Search this sub-forum for PM and there are a few posts on it.

Thanks! I've been reading up on it and John has said the dimensions might slightly change. Hoping it'll still fit in frame or I guess I'll have to figure something out with my framer...Really don't want to drop another $150 on a re-frame...
