There were 3 backdrops that I received with my light tent.  They were folded up and now have lots and lots of fold marks.  I tried ironing it with a cloth but the folds are still there.  The one side is a canvas wind breaker like material and the right side is a very short velvet Im not sure what to do to get the marks out.

Any help would be appreciated.

Jane -
I would steam them. I wouldn't put a hot iron to them.
Martha Stewart had some kind of pin board deal that you can use when steaming/pressing velvet type fabrics.
You could try her web site to find it.
You might just need to hang them up somewhere, steam them, and then leave them hanging afterwards for all of the wrinkles to fall out.
Hope this helps.

Mine are like that too Jane. I just have them hanging up, hoping the creases will drop out. I may try gently handwashing and drip dry. Yes, the video does look easy, which it is once you get the hang of it! bear_wacko
