Hello all! Posting this for a friend that's seeking some advice-
Hey Everyone, I'd like some practical advice. LOL At some point this summer, I'm going to be framing a very large three sheet poster, it measures approximately 70" x 37". I plan on making the frame myself like I usually do, but to get the poster flat and together and keep it together, do you have any suggestions? Should I just sandwich each individual piece between foamboard for a while (each of the three pieces is folded in half)? And what should I adhere each piece to the other piece with? It's glossy, like a movie poster, and is limited, but not museum quality. Obviously something that big is going to cost way too much to drymount ( I don't even know if you guys would recommend that or if it's even an option), so I was hoping you could suggest something. Also, once it's together, what would anyone recommend for backing to keep it taut and flat, I know that foamcore only comes in 40 x 60 so I didn't figure that would work? Any help is appreciated!

i'd say linen-back it first, then build a frame, but that's probably pretty expensive.
