We do this for murals and prints in our exhibits that may get alot of contact by visitors. It's called first-surface mounting, and is usually done with adhesives... but it's done for exhibit display prints & graphics--not really an archival usage--it's rather permanent. About the worst thing that can happen to it on display is that it can be vandalized... it happens, sometimes people like to deface them by scratching their initials in 'em or keying them....if you want to get this done, look for mural houses or labs that do production work for exhibitry or tradeshows. Also it's a good idea to have the corners rounded on the plex--it can be really sharp otherwise. Hope this helps.
