Never has caused a problem for me.

I print up to 0.13 inches to the edge of the paper and then have the actual print overlap the mat opening by about 0.13 inches. So, if I'm printing 17 inch wide paper, the print will be about 16.5 inches wide with 0.25 overlap under the mat on each side.

The mat would have 3 inch borders around the print, so the width of the whole mat would be about 23 inches wide.

If I understand correctly, then you have a gap between the mat and the frame back board, and this causes no problems?
