I left one of my framed pieces in my car for a couple of days and now the print is wavy. I'm assuming it is because it was hot a couple of days as it wasn't wavy when I framed it. It isn't a big print either, 8x12.

Anyone know how to make it unwavy?

Print it again. Don't think you can fix that.

Might be possible to fix the wavy effect, but the question is will the image survive the process? Likely easier to just have it re printed.

Consider this a learning experience.

I agree with the others, it might be difficult to get it perfectly flat and it may be easier to print again

If it's just the photo paper with no backing, you might have it dry-mounted on a backing board. Dry mounting is done in a press with heat applied.

Reverse the process. Leave it in a cold car for equal time as left in hot car. Works every time.

Most regions this will take about 6 months. If you're in the midwest (US), then it might only take a few days. Seriously, I'm in Chicago. Today it was over 90 (F) and last week it was below 45 (F)

I tried laying it on a shelf with a much of books on top of it, then heating the room up, but that didn't help, didn't hurt it any worse either.

I'll be dry mounting it at a later date.

And here I thought that wavy prints were Fricks purview.

Or is that prints of waves?
