tray framing - genesis imaging

Tray Framing Overview

Tray frames are glassless frames. The artwork is set back slightly from the edge of the frame to prevent damage, leaving space on all sides of the mounted print and creating a floating effect.

Images are first mounted to Dibond – a lightweight aluminium composite – which protects the print and provides a firm base for framing. A smaller sub-frame is then attached to the reverse of the mounted print, creating space between the back of the frame and the print.


Tray Framing Advantages

Tray framing offers a glassless finish, making them more lightweight than traditional frames and minimising reflections to artworks. Without glass, tray frames can also be more cost effective solutions than traditional frames.

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

The wooden mouldings we use for our framing are from sustainable sources that 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 attached to the back so that your work is ready to hang. Not only can our skilled team provide advice on hanging systems – but we can offer delivery and installation services too.

Why Choose Genesis for Tray Framing?

With in-house production capabilities, we craft Tray Frames in our on-site framing department. If you also print with us, this eliminates the need to coordinate with multiple suppliers, ensuring a streamlined and efficient process from start to finish. 

We also extend a 100% satisfaction guarantee to all of our services, pledging to either redo or refund should the outcome not fully meet your expectations.

Packaging and Transporting Your Framed Photographic Works

One of the biggest challenges with finished works is transportation, which is often tricky due to the fragility of the piece, its size and weight. We would recommend crating works where possible for international travel or transportation using select couriers, providing utmost security. Crates, which can be custom-built to accommodate the exact dimensions of your piece, do cost an additional outlay but can offer a cost-effective solution in the long term when compared against the costs and time associated with getting finished pieces re-made. We also advise, where possible, using experienced art handlers or installers to ensure the risk of damage is minimal. Not only do we provide advice on transportation from years of experience in this field, but we can create bespoke crates and delivery and installation services too – simply ask us!
