What kind of printing service do I need to digitally remove writing on matting around a photo?

Trying to fix a sentimental gift for someone. At an event, people were invited to write messages on the matting around a photo. There is something inappropriate written that has to be removed. The matting is approximately 1.5 feet by 2 feet. I went to Kinkos - they can't do it because the matting is too thick and they do not have a flatbed scanner that is big enough. I went to a banner printing place - they would have to scan the matting individually, digitally remove the inappropriate part, and photoshop it all back together. Does anyone know what type of large flatbed scanner or process I should be asking for? Does anyone know how I can achieve what I need?
The thing I need removed is something that was written on top of another original comment. I want to retain the original comment underneath and remove what was written over it. Hence, I can't just white out the offensive bit and photocopy the whole thing.
