Top Tip: Flatten Curly Prints in a Flash

Using high-end photo or fine-art papers like LexJet’s Sunset Photo eSatin Paper 300g or Sunset Hot Press Rag 310g delivers the premium, darkroom-style results that photographers and fine art reproduction printers demand. However, the thicker papers have one side effect: They curl as they come off the printer.

As we demonstrate in the video above, getting the curl out of your finished photo prints can be simple with a few items you already have in your facility. You’ll just need:

  • A printed photo
  • An empty media roll
  • Some scrap canvas
  • Tape
  • Velcro media wrap (optional)

Watch the video above, which will walk you through the quick steps. The whole process only takes a few minutes. Once your print is de-curled, you’ll be able to make a much nicer final presentation to your customer.
