    Simple, 3 stack Roma's. My Father-In-Law had a sports premium business and had a contract with Marvel to print Marvel comic book characters on basketballs. This was a folded mailer that had been mailed and he wanted something framed as a reminder. It was beat up and creased. First I tested a corner with a Q-Tip and water, when satisfied I misted the back with distilled H2O, fronted it with treated release Single Step paper and backed it with smooth absorbent, 2-ply ragboard, a couple layers of craft paper and put it into a slightly warm, cooling drymount press. Checked frequently, repeated, left in press overnight.

    Flattened it to perfection, relaxed the crease and minimally touched up with Prisma color pencils.

    Museum Glass, 1/4" black spacers, AFFC and voila, he loves it. It hangs in his room at a dementia care facility.
    He has pictures up of family members, his dog Jack (which I have now, unfortunately as he's a PITA). People have tried to remove it for more "acceptable" photos, etc, but that ain't gonna happen; he wants it there.

    The picture you see in my "Grumbler in Training" of the dog is not Jack. It's my Old English Sheepdog, Ruger Ragnarok.

    Wow, great job flattening it out! Those green frames really go with him too.

    That is an awesome frame but I find it very distressing that "people" would want to replace it with a more "acceptable" photo. Whose life is it, anyway? :(
