What's the best way to fix and care for this t-shirt?

My boyfriend has an awesome new t-shirt with a large, thick, flat image screened(?) on the front that bunched up and creased after the first wash-and-dry. Is there a way to get rid of the creases and folds in the image? And then what's the best way to care for it from here on out?

It looks very similar to this shirt
. The t-shirt is a very soft cotton and the BART ticket image is very thick and kinda shiny. It feels almost like a layer of latex paint (the kind you paint your walls with), and I'm afraid to iron it because I don't want to melt or burn it. We've had it hanging up for nearly a week in hopes that it'll just fall out, but that hasn't happened.
We take our laundry to the neighborhood wash-and-fold, but are willing to include this with the small number of delicates we hand-wash and line-dry at home.
