I have just received some long awaited prints (on Fuji photographic pearl paper). Unfortunately the postman has made a 15" wide cardboard envelope go through a 14" wide letter box.
As a consequence, the prints are kinked along their top edge.
Aside from claiming against the Post Office, has anyone ever successfully removed kinks by ironing, pressing or any other means.
I wondered about mounting on card with spray mount....
You definitely can't iron RC pearl paper. It sounds like you're out of luck. If the bend isn't enough to cause the little wrinkle in the surface you can sometimes work out the bend by pushing back with a blunt object on the backside. Or if there is not a definite fold or wrinkle mark you might be able to work it out by dry mounting finished prints or mounting on a card with spray mount... and rubbing the bent area down.
You could always get another pack of the same paper and then use the bent pack to cut up for tests. It is of some use that way.

He got prints, not paper. You might try simply placing them between two books if they're not superficially damaged.
