Hi,
Poster Mountain doesn't flatten or fix Mondo prints any longer. Does anyone know an alternative that is as good?

That's surprising. They fixed some of mine last Fall. Very helpful team.

Email Mario at Lumiere Restoration.

PM is a straight rip off.

I used Mario/Lumiere a few years ago and didn't have the best experience. Price and communication were great. Issue was I was told that using his 'gel' method of restoring screenprints that they could be rolled, only later to find out that wasn't the case. If that's not a concern then Lumiere is a great option.

Thanks. I've used Poster Mountain for some stuff and most of the time it was going to them then straight to Furthur Frames to be framed but this time around just said they weren't doing Mondo stuff. Maybe it's changed. Thanks again for the feedback on the other place. I'll look into it.

Fair enough. I have only used Mario to do vintage stuff, but knew he could do prints as well, always had a great experience with quality for the price, plus he's a nice guy.

Gel resto has to be flat, that's been widely accepted for years now, not sure why he would tell you that, sorry to hear.
Did you send back to him?

Try Chameleon Restoration out of Brooklyn, NYC. They'll flatten anything. Chris Fennel is the owner.

FWIW PM doesn't recommend rolling prints they've repaired/restored either.
