Uncurling roll paper prints

Has anyone got advice on uncurling prints done onto roll-paper through a 
wide-format printer?

I've been using a local service bureau with a Canon printer 
(12-pigment!) to print onto Satin Photo 240gm 42" paper. The colour 
rendition and depth is stunning but it's a hassle to view the prints 
unmounted because of the pronounced curl.  Trying to gently uncurl while 
holding the prints can result in wrinkles so I don't do that.  I can 
weight the print down on a table with a couple of steel rules, but it's 
tricky to even do that.

Pentax content: first sale ever! :-) Sold some (curled) prints taken 
with the K20D and the DA* 50-135.
