A friend has a large collection of postcards and has asked for advice
with a special project, so I'm turning to you.

Her idea is to make one or more collages, either as a poster, on a room
divider, or under glass on a coffee table.  I asked her how much light
they would be getting, and would she be prepared not to see the backs of
them, once they're mounted on something.  She is wondering about what to
display them on, and how to mount them, with lamination being a final

She says they probably wouldn't be exposed to a lot of direct sunlight.
She won't be using ones that have interesting messages on the back, or
attractive stamps.

In addition, do you have any suggestions on the best way to store them,
to keep them in pristine condition? Presumably they are in boxes right
now. Many thanks for whatever info you can provide.
