    How to flatten rolled up posters for framing?

    So, I have all these posters that have been rolled up when they were shipped. I never got them framed and hung on the wall, and now it's time. Some have been rolled up as long as 8 years. Is there a method to get them to unroll or flatten quicker than putting a bunch of books on them? That's what I'm doing now. Help me out, Suzy Homemakers!

    Unroll them and put books on them. It might take 8 years.

    not a big deal..... given the way black lights work, you will never notice if the illuminated "Led Zeppelin" isn't perfectly flat

    Just use the puddy stickies. roll out the poster, put some puddy on the back around the edges in a few places, layout on the card-board (frame backing). put in frame.
    It is not the end. It is not the beginning of the end. It is the end of the beginning.

    Have them laminated to a foam backing and then frame it up.

    Lay them flat on the floor of the bathroom. Place a few small weights to hold them flat. Put a fan next to them blowing at the wall. Turn the shower on hot for a few minutes with the door shut. Turn off the shower. Leave them for a day. The moisture will relax the fibres, then dry away.

    A good quality frame will hold them completely flat against the glass.

    The heavier the weight the better
