# minipage goes beyond right margin

\begin{minipage}[c][3cm]{0.075\textwidth}
\includegraphics[scale=1.5]{Capture}
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}[c][3cm]{0.85\textwidth}
\centering{\bfseries{\scriptsize blah blah blah blah} \vfill
{\large blah blah blah blah}}\vfill
(\small blah blah blah blah blah blah)\\
blah blah blah
\end{minipage}%
\begin{minipage}[c][3cm]{0.075\textwidth}
\includegraphics[scale=0.7]{Capture1}
\end{minipage}

• Yes, of course it will. Leave a blank line between the minipages (or an explicit \par), otherwise they're stacked one next to the other on the same line, causing your problem.

• @Werner Their widths add up to \textwidth, so the problem could be a missing \noindent before the first one. (Unless of course the Capture1 graphic is wider than 0.075\textwidth.) shruthi: It is always best if you make complete examples, starting with \documentclass, ending with \end{document}, so that we can copy and compile the code directly. When images are part of an example, you can either add the demo option to graphicx, or use the images from the mwe package, e.g. \includegraphics{example-image}. May 1 '14 at 7:13
• @TorbjørnT.: True. I misread 0.075 as 0.75. My (rather speculative) guess is that Capture is far wider than 0.075\textwidth, as the OP uses scale rather than width.

It is hard to tell as you have not provided a proper example but the outer two minipage are not doing a lot, and probably you should use width rather than scale to ensure the final width. Also the row as a whole needs to be not indented, finally beware {\large blah blah blah blah} a size change command should always include \par or a blank line at the end, otherwise you will set large (or small) text on a normal baseline.
