What is Tray Framing?

Tray framing offers a glassless, contemporary framing solution that achieves a 3d, ‘floating’ effect for your images or artwork.

Your images are firstly mounted to Dibond – a lightweight aluminium composite known for its rigidity – which adds protection to the print and provides a firm base for framing. A smaller sub-frame is then attached to the reverse of the mounted print, providing space between the back of the frame and the print. The artwork is set back slightly from the edge of the frame to prevent damage and there is space left on all sides of the mounted print within the frame to achieve the ‘floating’ effect.

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.

Appropriate fixings are then attached to the back of the tray 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.

Why Should I Choose Tray Frames?

Without glass, tray frames are more lightweight than traditional framing options and reflections on artwork are minimised – allowing your work to be seen in all of its glory.

Our range of exhibition quality mouldings makes any of our framing options flexible and adaptable to your requirements.
