Default Slipcover repair techniques?

Anyone have any techniques to share for wrinkled or dented slipcovers? Some form of humidity and pressure? Anything?

Slipcovers are made of cardboard, so if they get damaged in any kind of way, there's nothing a person can do but to replace it.

I've done some ironing before to a slip. It can make it slightly better if you do it right. It will never completely get rid of the creases. If anything, it might look max 25-33% better if you do it right. I would practice on a slip you don't care about first. Make sure you put some paper between the slip and the iron. I've had the iron take out paint from the slip due to direct contact before. Don't get the slip or any paper wet. Water if absorbed can do a lot of damage to paper which is irreversible.

Although, I've found that water carefully applied can reverse those pin-like marks you sometimes fine on thin paper that goes in the plastic blu-ray case. Slips are too thick for that though

Not all slips are created the same. Some have less gloss than others which makes them more prone to water damage.

well, one thing that might help a little is taking the slip off and putting it under a stack of books to flatten it out. The dents and dings might look a little better afterwards... nothing will make them look perfect however.

No, really, a comic book press, it heats up and compression is excellent. Aside from color flaking from completely folded over bends, the flattened surface of a previously accordion shaped comic book looks brand spanking new you can apply some wax paper and get a coated shine if you want.
