Flattening roll paper prints

Ok, so I got my r1800 to print from its roll feed no problems, but now I have to figure out away to flatten some of the prints, or rather make the paper uncurl. Currently I have some heavy phone books sitting on top of the paper to flatten it out, but I don't know if that works or not. Any suggestions, It just want to flatten them out to make them easier to work with and mount.

Hi Patrick

Your method should work just fine although you may have to leave the print under the phone book for about a week.

If you have a lot to do you could consider buying one of these

However I am sure you could make your own for a little less money

Based on the tutorial, it looks like it's just a tube with a large sheet of something attached, plastic or canvas? Lay the picture on the sheet, roll the sheet and the picture around the tube the opposite direction of the curl, and then unroll it. No miracle solution, by any means.
