Anyone know where I might be able to get a couple of silver gelatin prints uncurled and mounted?

I have a couple of wide format silver gelatin prints that were stored rolled that now maintain that shape without effort. I'd like them to lie flat without any assistance so they might be matted and framed.

Does anyone know any place that might be suitable for the task? I know its awfully specific.

You might want to talk to someone at a dedicated camera store in your area. One that sells camera equipment. Like Bergen County Camera in my neck of the woods. [bergencountycamera.com]

OR a stand alone art gallery that frames stuff as well as sell art. NOT Michaels or Joann's.

you'll have to call around to find a mounting press. a good frame shop probably has one. if it's huge, they may have to do it in sections.

I would just buy a really long tray to hold water and soak it for a bunch of hours. if it's rolled up, a bucket may work. super clean, of course.



Hurts like a bastid...
