I would have gladly paid more for shipping to get it rolled rather than folded - the creases just don't want to come out.

Wouldn't it help to put it in the dryer? Wash it then put it in the dryer? o_O

I use a steamer and that seems to be the easiest way.

When I say the creases don't want to come out I didn't mean I asked them politely and they refused o_O. I meant I've tried all manner of flattening without success.

Not to mention you aren't wearing this; it shouldn't need to be washed. Washing can hurt the color, which IS its purpose.

easiest way is to spray the fabric with distilled water - wrinkles come right after it dries

Kristian Lee is TOTALLY RIGHT. Patience with *a good*, semi-professional steamer will get rid of even "bad" creases in fabric.
As well, keep in mind it is important to evenly "stretch" the fabric on a sort of frame. You want your green-screen background to be flat and smooth as possible THEN *evenly-light the backdrop* in order to assist your software for its job of extraction!

Better than "washing" would be to soak this sheet in water for awhile. Then, after you get most of the water out (by running it on a 'spin' cycle in the wash machine) lay the damp fabric out on (preferably) a strong wood frame and carefully begin to "stretch" and staple the fabric along the edges. (Anyone experienced in stretching canvas as preparation for making a painting will already be familiar with this process. If you're not... Google!)
Set aside the 'framed' backdrop and let it dry. As it dries the fabric will be pulled taught. As I mention in someone else's comments here on this product page, a good, semi-professional steamer works wonders on removing wrinkles, crinkles, lumps and bumps in almost any fabric. *You want your green-screen to be flat and even as possible for shooting against -- especially for video.
