LA Good Questions: How remove creases from poster?

Pin it button big

Gregory recently posted about alternative wall treatments. I would love to use wallpaper in my home, but my walls have that weird texture on them. I've also been yearning for this great wallpaper from Palace Papers called "Fossil Fuel." Designed by Casey Gunschel, I just love the subtle colors combined with the unexpected graphic of dinosaur fossils. So, to appease myself, I decided to order a sample and frame it. Unfortunately, the sample came folded and consequently had really hard creases...

How do you get rid of creases on a poster or in this case, wallpaper sample? Obviously, since some of the paint is cracked from the creasing, I won't be able to remove it completely. I read several methods, including possibly ironing it. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

(I ended up spray gluing and mounting it to a piece of poster board before framing it, which did help diminish the appearance... but if anyone has any other tips, please share in the comments!)
