The method I use to remove wrinkles is to coil the tie from the small end and allow it to rest for a few days. You will be pleased with the outcome.
Additionally, Pressing neckwear is not a good idea, as it will remove the roll from the edges of the tie and your ties will be flat and lack any body.
I don't mean any offence, but you don't know what you are talking about. By using the steaming technique, I am able to get rid of almost 100% of the creases on my ties. The iron should never touch the tie, but steaming it for a good five minutes or more and than padding the tie with your hand will remove even the most stubborn crease.
The sheen and the rolled edges of the tie look the exact same. I have used this technique on all sorts of ties (silk, wool, cashmere, cotton, and blends of wool and silk/cashmere and silk/silk and cotton) and all have come out looking perfect with absolutely no harm done to the tie.
While the coil technique you mention will get rid of some creases (i used to store a few ties this way), its effect will only be minimal.
