Is pressing suits a fairly standard procedure that can be done by any reputable dry cleaner?
Of course, any dry cleaner should press any garment entrusted to it for cleaning. It is a fairly standard procedure that can be done at home.
Your post perked my curiosity. With almost 4,000 posts, your question seems like it would be from a newbe, not a senior member. Are you just trying to drive attention to your sales links?

Most places will flatten your lapel like a pancake.
^ yup. I was scared to bring my jackets to any cleaner until I found a good tailor and asked him for a recommendation
That is a danger of some I agree.
The tailors active on this site have scared me. They say that pressing needs to be done with care, with an iron, not a pressing machine, and by someone who knows what he/she is doing. Otherwise, apparently, they can mess up the suit. It sounds like the damage can be restored by pressing by an expert, but I don't know how to find such a person. If you have a tailor, either have them press your suit, or ask for a recommendation. If, like me, you don't have a tailor, I don't know what to do.

I'm inclined to take and suits to a tailor as opposed to a dry cleaner, assuming the tailor does it by hand. I suppose a dry cleaner could do an OK job if they at least press with the lapels open.
