Some variance is normal but this begs the question, has the print been to the bastard Bignell for deformation?
not taking anything to Bignall after he flattend a print for me a ruined the blind stamp completely!
Common danger with inexperienced restorers. Beware! No one will look out for your piece better than yourself. Ask as many questions as possible and definitely get solid recommendations before taking to someone. Sorry to hear about your incident ... Have seen it happen many times.
The paper used, in the this case Arches Velin will have probably been delivered as a large ream so will have four straight cut sides until it is either clean cut or hand torn by the publishers production people, so, the likelihood would be quite a few of the prints produced possibly having at least one straight cut edge.
