    Default paper

    If I want to describe a paper has been squeezed with other books that it has a lot of lines and is not flat anymore.


    1. Shall I say The paper is wrinkled?


    2. Are there other common sayings to describe it has a lot of lines and is not flat anymore?


    3. Are there other commom sayings to describe not flat ?

    If there is one line, it's called a crease; e.g., my paper is creased; there's a crease in my paper; there are several creases in my paper; my paper has a lot of creases; colloquial: the paper is (all) creased-up.
