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.
