What is Classic Gallery Framing?

Our bespoke classic gallery framing service produces frames exactly as you would see in many international galleries and major exhibitions worldwide.

Why Should I Choose Classic Gallery Framing?

We stock a wide range of exhibition-quality mouldings in a broad range of colours and finishes and our specialist staff are able to consult with you to find your perfect finishing solution. Of course, framing isn’t all about aesthetics – our team are also highly skilled in producing bespoke gallery framing solutions to preserve and protect your photographs or artwork.

Our frames are available in sizes up to 110 inches or 2.8m, although we can accommodate larger requests on application.

We use anti-reflective Artglass as standard, which is the best option for reflective-free and neutral viewing. This incorporates a 70% UV filter to protect your valuable artwork from fading. In addition to traditional glazing, we also offer durable and lightweight Perspex – perfect for larger frames.

When in comes to passé-partout’s, or window mounts, we only use the finest 8-ply acid-free and neutral PH museum conservation-quality board, which is certified by The Fine Art Trade Guild and offers exceptional preservation qualities that conform to the highest conservation standards. The wooden mouldings we use for our framing are from sustainable sources that are managed to meet environmental, social and economic needs for both the present and future, as certified by the FSC scheme.

Once your frame is complete, appropriate fixings are then attached to the back of your frame so that your work is ready to hang. Of course, not only can our skilled team provide advice on hanging systems – but we can also offer delivery and installation services too.

What Our Clients Say About Our Classic Gallery Framing:

“‘Still Waters’ was of utmost importance as it was part of Format ’13, celebrating some of the business leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs that have helped shape Derby’s cultural, economic and industrial landscape. I needed a company that could frame my work to the highest standard and deliver the project on time; Genesis Imaging completed that task immaculately.”

FAQ expand all

I'm not sure which framing service to use - can I talk to someone?

Certainly! We do have an extensive range of framing solutions, in a wide range of finishes and we know that the process of choosing the perfect frame can be quite daunting. We are very happy to talk you through the framing process and to help you choose the right solution for your photographs or artwork. Book your appointment with our team here.

How should I clean my framed artwork?

The glass in frames can be gently cleaned using glass polish and a lint free cloth, we recommend spraying glass cleaner on to a cloth rather than directly on to the glass to avoid contact with the frame. As a general rule, our range of mouldings can be cleaned with a mildly damp, lint free cloth. We recommend that as little water as possible is left on the wood as this can lead to warping. Our team are happy to talk you through how to care for your individual framed work. 

Which types of glazing do you offer for framed works?

We use anti-reflective Artglass as standard for our framed works, which is the best option for reflective-free and neutral viewing. This incorporates a 70% UV filter to protect your valuable artwork from fading. In addition to traditional glazing, we also offer durable and lightweight Perspex – perfect for larger frames.

Is the wood used in your framing from sustainable sources?

Yes. We care about the environment, which is why the wooden mouldings we use for our framing are from sustainable sources that are managed to meet environmental, social and economic needs for the present and future, as certified by the FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) scheme.

 

Is the board you use for your Passé-Partout Window Mounts archival?

When it comes to Passé-Partout’s, or Window Mounts, we only use the finest 8-ply acid-free and neutral PH museum conservation-quality board, which is certified by The Fine Art Trade Guild and offers exceptional preservation qualities that conform to the highest conservation standards.
