How to unroll PET material poster?How to unroll PET material poster?Ask MFC

I received this Hua Cheng poster a few weeks ago but I can't put it up on my wall because I can't figure out how to unroll it properly ToT I tried rolling it in the opposite direction like I do for normal posters (the ones printed on glossy paper) and also weighing it down with something heavy for a few days, but it still didn't work.

For reference, here's the poster I'm talking about: www.amiami.com/...

Here are some pics (pardon the shit quality):

It's basically made out of the same plastic-y material as clear files and such.

Does anybody know how to unroll this without it curling back up? I'd appreciate any tips ToT

Thank you in advance!

Dr_Oru20 days ago#103694004Repeating what others have said, mostly fixed the issue by simply posting it with something like TESA double sided eco tape, powerbond or carpet tape ( depending on where you are from, might not be the same type of product but the TESA one is basically a lil tape that glues very well but it also very easy to peel off even from paper without damaging).
This helps them keep flat for the whole time. However, come tie to remove it, at least mine went back to rolling themselves a good bit.

You could also try putting it between 2 towels and iron it on a low setting that only penetrates the towel, but won't melt the plastic. ***This is fine if you do it right. I iron art all of the time. You just need to be careful.
crosswithyou20 days ago#103688793I think if you use like those 3M picture/poster hanging tape, it should be strong enough to lay flat on your wall.tomura20 days ago#103687702have you thought about purchasing a picture frame? they usually use backing plates that lock to hold photos and it could possibly be strong enough to stop it from curling.

Thank you everyone for your help! I'll try ironing it out first, and if it doesn't work then I'll put it up with double-sided tape. :D
