Mounting large photographs

From: Ginny Rosner <grosner>

Would you please share any information that you have about mounting
a large color photograph. This is a Type -C print, 5 foot square
that will be framed.

Previously, someone on the list has mentioned aluminum as a stable
substrate and cautioned against 'Optimount' or 'Print One' as an
adhesive. Does anyone have experience with any of these materials?
Would you be willing to share your experience, good or bad?

Sintra has been recommended by the lab as the substrate to mount the
photograph, but I cannot find any information on the properties of
this material. Do you have any recommendations? What type of
adhesive should be used to mount the photograph?
