Hello Shetland,
It’s a privilege to be guest editor for this edition of Shetland Life.

I’ve written a lot of stuff for Shetland Life over the last couple of years, but not til right now did I fully appreciate how big a job it is to put it all together. I am genuinely in awe of our regular editor, Genevieve, and how she does this every month without breaking a sweat.

And this is the issue she left me with: Love and Relationships. Which is fairly apt, since ‘love and relationships’ is the only reason I’m in Shetland in the first place. If I hadn’t met a certain, beautiful Shetlander in a bar in Glasgow, and followed through on a promise to come and visit her for Hogmanay, I wouldn’t be writing this now. I’d probably not have set foot on Shetland at all, come to think of it.

I remember a close (Shetland) friend once asking me if people “really go on dates” down south. They explained that they had never been on a formal get-to-know-each-other date, as their relationships had been with people that they had already known on some level beforehand. In a place where you are quite probably familiar with 80 per cent of the people in your age group, that seems entirely possible.

I was told that often the way of winding up in a relationship was to ‘bag aff’ with someone, and once you had ‘bagged aff’ with that someone a number of times you would have seamlessly transitioned to being in a relationship. It was a slightly mind boggling concept for me, like being told that all romantic matches are determined by the casting of sheep-bones under a waxing moon. To a Glaswegian such as myself, Shetland courtship seemed a strange and exotic thing.

This month, the Shetland Life writers have done a terrific job (as usual) of looking at love in the isles. Getting to grips with Shetland romance has been an absolutely fascinating experience; I hope it is as enjoyable to read as it has been to put together.

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.

Have you seen the latest Shetland Recreational Trust annual report?

It looks fantastic with the four cover images having been “spot UV varnished” to make the pictures pop out. This type of specialist finish also increases the tactile nature of the reading experience too. The inner pages have been designed to pull through the angled boxes on the cover and we’ve had excellent feedback from our client.

If you want your next publication or promotional project to include an element that makes it stand out from the crowd, give us a call. We will provide suggestions and design ideas to incorporate into your printed material that will make it more attractive, memorable and get noticed.

Contact us by dropping in along, calling us on 01595 742000 or by e-mail, printing@shetlandtimes.co.uk. We look forward to your call.

Shared production and distribution costs provide excellent value for money as well as the leaflet showcases the products and services…..

Filed under: Printed Jobs

It’s time for our Summer Motoring leaflet! Having a few days of nice weather perhaps doesn’t justify calling it summer just yet but it’s easy to justify why readers should shop locally for all their motoring needs as our participating businesses have some great products and services on offer.

Get in touch with them and get great advice and deals.

Distributed as an insert in The Shetland Times newspaper throughout Shetland using our “town and country” option (8400 copies) all participating businesses get the added bonus of access to our 18,360 AIR readership figure (number of adults over the age of 15 in Shetland who read our title).

If you would like to get included  in the next Summer (or Winter) edition of this promotional leaflet give us a call on 01595 742000 or contact us at printing@shetlandtimes.co.uk. The leaflet provides excellent value for money to our clients as we split production and distribution cost equally between participating businesses which makes this a very attractive marketing option.

ADD PRINT, ADD POWER to your promotions.

There are as many benefits to print, perhaps the most important is tangibility and the fact readers have made a conscious decision to put time aside to read without any distractions. With all good publications there’s also a feeling of substance, of stimulating the senses, taking the reader further down the “path to purchase” – that’s always a good route!!

Our pre-press department has the latest Agfa Galileo VXT Computer-To-Plate system (CTP) installed allowing us to deliver precise image quality in an energy efficient manner. This benefits our clients through the production of sharp, high impact imagery on all of their products.

The CTP system has eliminated the use of photographic film, allows the use of water-based chemicals in all our processes, incorporates a violet-laser imaging head (which lasts for up to seven years) and limits waste, which all helps us greatly reduce the environmental impact of this process.

Please see our pre-press plant list here for complete technical specifications of all our machinery.
