took in 2 diplomas(BS's) that are fairly thin paper stock(just a little thicker than manila folders) that have the institution's seal heavily embossed, at the top. As a result of the heavy impressions, both pieces actually bulge in this middle/upper part of the of the page ... looks very sloppy! My guess is the paper is actually stretched from the print process. I've had them under a lot of matboard for 3 days...NO change. anyone have good ideas how to make them "presentable" (obvoiusly, the paper will NOT shrink)???

Totally agrere, Jim. Had no thought of drymount--used hunges hoping they might help take out some if the slack/bulges(sort of like a face lift), but didnt seem to mare a difference. Really wanted to pole the populace as to anything slick to help mask this problem. thanks

Bill, they are "presentable" . . . and they were presented that way. If the customer has a problem with how there piece of paper representing $60,000+ of money, time, and labor looks.. their beef isn't with you, it should be with the school.
