Can closed cell foam be butted together?

Is there a method for butting up two pieces of 1/4" closed cell foam without the seam telegraphing once the upholstery is glued on? Or won't it telegraph if the seam is perfect?

For the particular area I am working on (compound complex curve at the rear corner of the panel delivery) I do have the option of butting the 1/4" and then applying a layer of 1/8" over the top of that, which hopefully would do the trick. But if there is an easier way it would make my life a little easier.
