Any clue on an East Coast /North East shop that can help with flattening? I have ~20+ posters from '09-'13 that I've let rest for months without much give. (I know.. I'm a terrible person but I had no clue this would be such an ordeal). Trying to avoid wavyness and bends from flattening so I can get them into my portfolio until I can frame them up.

Any suggestions / help is appreciated.

Been a while since I posted here, but I've got a few McCarthy's that I bought specifically to go in a couple bedrooms at my lake house. I dont particularly care about maintaining any real monetary value out of the posters, just love them in the setting and will have no desire to ever move them. Problem is that when they were shipped, way too many prints got jammed into a 2" tube and despite months of flattening, they wont flatten out, or be held down by matting.

I know its a cardinal sin in the collecting circle, but is dry mounting an effective and economical solution for a handful of $20-40 posters? Seems like my only move outside of professional flattening.
