I have nice thick moab (legion) paper for photos printed on an epson 3880....11x17's.

I hung them behind matte's in 13x19 frames. The photo paper is significantly rippled now that they're hanging vertically on the walls. I called Legion and their best idea was instead of taping all the edges, tape the top edge only. They're no better this way. Does anyone know a good solution - how do galleries fix this?

They should definately not be taped all around. If you are taping all around, then you would be better dry mounting them.

Hinge them from the top, either from the backing board or from the matt:
