Our latest publication, “Enjoy Fair Isle Knitting” is launched today at the Shetland Wool Week. We were pleased to have worked with author Chihiro Sato from Tokyo who has created beautiful contemporary designs with colourations inspired by Shetland’s nature and atmosphere.

Having been heavily involved in the project from its inception, designing the layout, amending text that was translated, coordinating the logistics of proof reading to printing and binding the project for the requested launch date, we are glad to now share and make this fine book available to you.

With the author’s deep respect for traditional Shetland patterns gained from many visits to the islands, this collection of 18 projects will allow you to share her love of Fair Isle knitting and make it possible to create hand knitted garments inspired by our islands.

The book is packed with fantastic photos, diagrams, patterns and helpful knitting notes and instructions is available now at shop.shetlandtimes.co.uk

We hope you do all enjoy Fair Isle knitting.

We’ve just produced this academic publication which has been digitally printed as a “print on demand” title. This allows our client to order their required initial print run quantity and then re-order smaller quantities (50-100 copies) should this be required.

Print on demand is becoming a popular service for not only academic books but niche publications, personal literary projects or reprints of old titles that have a limited target market. If you are a budding author with a book that you would like to get printed and would like to test potential sales with a short run publication but are unsure of how the process works, give us a call and we will guide your through the various stages of production.

We’d like to thank the editor of Traversing the Inner Seas for kindly leaving us the following review:

First-rate service by Shetland Times throughout the process of printing our latest monograph“.

Filed under: Awards, Printed Jobs

Nominated for a Saltire Society Literary Award in the “History book of the Year” 2016 category, key themes within the book focus on how the effects of the war on Shetland were determined by the islands location and how Shetlanders related the war to their local community as well as to themselves and their families. Shetland, the “Old Rock”, had a deep emotional meaning for them.

If you’ve been on social media over the last few days #uphellyaa may just have been on your radar or perhaps infiltrated your notification feeds!

On the last Tuesday of January every year the Up Helly Aa festival takes place in Shetland with 1000+ men taking part in a torchlit procession in the evening through the island capital Lerwick. The culmination of the procession is the burning of a replica viking longship that is known as the galley. For more in-depth information go to www.uphellyaa.org to read about the origins of the festival.

To provide a comprehensive flavour of the whole day and evening events, we produce a limited edition, 36pp A4, Up Helly Aa Souvenir programme which is packed with  full colour photos. WARNING, once you’ve bought a copy at shop.shetlandtimes.co.uk, you’ll want to book a visit to see next year’s festival!!

You’ll be made very welcome and we’ll be glad to see you.

We enjoy producing programmes for festivals of all sizes, providing services from project management through to, importantly, finishing all projects on time to agreed production schedule at very competitive rates. Our Up-Helly-A’ season starts in December every year and finishes in mid March when the final galley goes up in flames! We print programmes for festivals from the south mainland up to the north isles but would be glad to hear from any festival that would like our assistance.

If any festival committee currently producing their own Up-Helly-A’ literature would like us to help print your programme please contact us and we can discuss the best format, materials and pagination to meet your needs and budget.

SKOAL!

Filed under: Printed Jobs

We’ve just delivered an order for promotional flyers to a new local tour business operating out of Lerwick Harbour and we wish them well for the forthcoming seasons.

Shetland Seabird Tours flyer also includes a new highly tactile finish that we now offer which provides a little extra protection from any drizzly weather or splashes. The “soft touch” lamination will allow any light moisture to be wiped off but also adds a luxurious finish that will stimulate the senses! As the name suggests, there is a smooth yet soft feel to the finish which, in our experience to date, is always commented upon in a positive fashion by the leaflet reader!

If you think your business stationery or promotional material would benefit from this finish give us a call and we can let you experience “soft touch” before placing your next order. Drop in along and see the range of samples available at our Gremista factory.
