I've read that you really need to get your green screen flat and devoid of wrinkles.
With something large like 10"x24".....what would one use? I can't imagine that using a run of the mill iron would do the job...what do ya'll use?

TIA,

hang it up.  you can use a hand held steamer on any wrinkled areas  Its own weight should help.  Roll it up when you've finished using it so it will not be wrinkled when you need it next.

10 inch by 24 inch is smaller than most pant legs.  :P

Anyway, I would say a steamer would be the best way to flatten it, just make sure it's not a super delicate material that could be damaged by 212°F (100°C).
