Do they lay flat? Thats pretty much how I do it, but not getting the flatness I want. I don't use edge strips, I assume this is tape? How do you get the mats to lay flat? Mine tend to leave gaps between the mat and image and its usually because the mat is not perfectly flat.
Mats will warp, if not held against glass. You can some eleviate that by hinging the mat from the top of the backing board, and making sure the whole isn't pressed too tightly against the frame. You need to allow for expansion and contraction of differing materials.
Some papers are less prone to curl than others. Canson Rag Photographique, for example, is much better in this regard than Hahnemühle Photo Rag. One thing I haven't tried, but might be worth trying, it to spray both sides of the print.
