Welcome to the 38th Shetland Folk Festival…complete with tunes, laughs and some serious sleepless nights!!

We’ve completed the official programme and are excited to see such a great line up once again.

We thoroughly enjoy working with the Folk Festival each year to help them promote their event creating full colour flyers alongside newspaper and magazine and online/social media advertising. As we also print The Shetland Times newspaper every week, our coverage of the event alongside any videos we can capture for our news website, helps provide great all round coverage of the event that has become a staple in many a Shetlanders’, returning tourists’ and music fanatics’, yearly calendar.

Having so many visiting artistes and visitors to our islands join in the fun makes it all the more special. You’ll have a great time at this event and we hope you enjoy the programme and can make time to visit the supporting businesses who have advertised within the programme to help support this fantastic festival.

We want your events to have the very best coverage to make them as successful as possible. To help you, we have a variety of print options from tickets, invites, posters, advertising, programmes, souvenir booklets and news coverage that reaches throughout the majority of the local community.

Our goal is to help you let as many people know about, attend, speak about, share information and if applicable, return to take part in it time and time again!

Get in touch by calling or dropping in along for a chat and we’ll talk you through our print options and also tie them into the online options we also provide through social media, online banner and video “top n tail” advertising.

Why produce a programme for your event?:

We offer direction from design to finishing the printed piece while advising on the do’s and don’ts of preparing a programme for printing. This is a good way to raise funds for your organisation, whilst at the same time create an archive of historical information and images for your particular sport or event. A programme can help raise your organisation’s profile and further increase interest and possibly even participation in your sport.

Customer:

Various including Shetland Junior Inter-county Association, Shetland Interclub, Shetland Football Association and Shetland Volleyball Association.

Customer Feedback:

“We raised funds from the sale of our programme and our own feedback from player and spectators on the design and content was very positive”. KS – S.V.A.

Size:

In general pagination will depend on your budget, the size of your event, the amount of programmes you can sell and of course the final content you decide to publish. With this in mind we produce programmes from 4pp upwards.

Our Recommendation:

A5 portrait booklets work well for sporting events. Let us advise on the most economical number of pages prior to sending you a free quotation.

Materials:

130/150gsm gloss, silk or matt art paper work well and the decision on which one to choose will mainly come down to personal choice rather than any obvious technical benefit.

Our Recommendation:

Choosing one of our recycled ranges of papers will benefit the environment and currently do not add much, if anything in some instances, to the cost of production.

Printing:

Full colour throughout – it provides better value for your potential customers or supporting advertisers and is what the majority of purchasers expect.

Our Recommendation:

Get your job printed using the lithographic process on a commercial printing press for the best reproduction. Avoid poor digitally printed substitutes if possible.

Finishing:

We saddle stitch the majority of A5 booklets and trim to the finished size on our binding line before packaging them ready for delivery.

Our Recommendation:

Produce a “self-covered” programme with the same weight of cover as is on the inside pages. This is the most economical format.

Our Top Tip:

It will help if you initially take time to approach relevant companies that are in some way connected to your sport or event and offer them the opportunity to advertise in your programme.

Set a sensible price per full page or half page advert. This will provide enough revenue to help pay for the production of your programme – the cash raised from the sale of the programme is clear profit for your funds.

The Shetland Times is proud to be an event sponsor for the Shetland 2014 Relay for Life.

Our role, for the third consecutive year for the relay, was  the production, design, printing, finishing and distribution of the 8pp, A5 stitched programme booklet.

The Shetland Times would like to take this opportunity to send our best wishes to all participants and congratulate them and the Relay for Life committee for their sterling efforts and hope the funds raised for Cancer Research UK exceed expectations.

ADD PRINT – ADD POWER to your promotions: Branded content for events like this are extremely print-appropriate and will give a boost to any campaign.

Filed under: Printed Jobs

Customer: Shetland Jazz Club

Why produce an event programme: Branded programmes with content such as biographies and timetables for events like this are extremely print-appropriate and will give a boost to the number of people who attend the event. This in turn leads to more revenue, and importantly, can help make the festival a success.

Size: This 20pp, A5 booklet is a versatile format and can accommodate large photographic images. If you require more content the pagination must be increased by four pages each time – eg 24pp, 28pp, 32pp etc.

Our Recommendation: Decide how many pages you require prior to calling for a free quotation.  You may find a 32pp booklet is just as economical as a 28pp – discuss this with us.

Materials: This programme is printed on silk art 170gsm inners with a 250gsm cover giving it premium tactile rating and classy finish.

Our Recommendation: A recycled stock was sourced for this programme,  adding an environmental rating to the event.

Printing: Full colour throughout shows off the band and artistes imagery to its full potential.

Add Print – Add Power to your promotions: With all good publications there’s a feeling of substance, of stimulating the senses. Accessibility and portability of products like this are also the practical advantages and good reasons why you should consider producing quality printed items to help promote your event.
