Question Anybody know if there is a way to Remove a crease from a Signed Picture?

I got a picture signed today by elton brand and when I got home, I noticed there is a small crease in the photo. Not sure how it got there but it is there. I tried to look online but they all say to reprint the photo, but i can't do that because it is signed. Right now i have the photo under a ton of heavy books to see if they will flatten out. Anyone have any ideas as to if there is a way to remove creases without having to reprint the photo?

I know if you iron it with a dry iron it sometimes can work. However, I wouldn't risk it on a valuable print. Just sell it as is if you are selling it. No need to worry, things can be very valuable even with a crease. I still remember the Mickey Mantle card I sold for $20.00 and it had creases everywhere and writing on the card. So there is hope for your mangled print. Could still be worth something. Maye you could even put it in a frame to hide the crease if you are keeping it.

Use a large smooth spoon and press it along the crease. It is impossible to remove a crease completely, but that should help you minimize you loss of eye appeal.
