Two Mitchell prints I got were in the tubes for 6 days (during shipping time). Previous owner said he kept them in flat file. It’s been almost a week since I got them, laid them flat and put small books on corners but prints are still rolling up. Am I doing something wrong? Humidity is not an issue.

foam core sandwich works wonders on stubborn prints - the paper needs to be able to breath while it flattens out. If you have them smashed tight under paper and books they probably are not getting the air flow they need to relax
also, patience is a virtue, less than a week is not very much time... usually I let my prints breath out of the tube for several days to a week before even attempting to start the flattening process. Some papers will flatten themselves out much easier than others
