I'm trying to scope out a project plan. Customer has three newspaper front pages that he wants all together in one frame. I explained the issue with newsprint and longevity, but they want to use the originals. Two of the mat openings would be about 11-1/4 x 22 and one about 14-1/4 x 22. There would be about 1-3/4" of mat between the openings and about 2-1/4" around the group. Would using Melinex overlay mounts for each page work as a mounting method? I've done a similar two page project, which did work, but I'm concerned about the stability of the mount and matting over a total width of about 45", particularly the vertical mat elements between the pages. I'm thinking they may need to be wider to allow an area for sticking them in place between the overlay mounts to prevent them warping. This would get Cons.Clear glass, so I don't want to go over 48" total width.
