Summer time in Shetland produces a host of different local events, shows, displays and occasions that deserve to be accompanied by a good programme to remember them by in years to come. In fact, there are many events throughout the year in Shetland that merit having a well produced booklet to help document their history as years go by.

We produce many different formats of programmes and booklets for these type of events. We enjoy helping guide and assist our clients’ through the various stages from design ideas, contacting and collating advertising copy or text content to ensuring everyone involved is working to a production schedule that ensures it’s ready in time for the event!

You deserve to have a reminder of your favourite event/s and the public love to have a record of being there too. This also helps contribute to the overall fundraising efforts that help to keep events going and people visiting them in future years.

Pop in along or contact us soon on 01595 74200 – printing@shetlandtimes.co.uk – to discuss how we can help you produce your next programme. Or if you don’t have one yet, we’d love to hear from you and provide guidance as how to best go about getting started and together we can decide upon the format that will best showcase your event.

Filed under: Printed Jobs

We’ve been pleased to work with Morrison Construction to keep the Shetland community up to date with progress on the construction of the new Anderson High School and associated accommodation block in Lerwick.

On the last Friday of every month we product a newsletter which is designed, printed and distributed as an insert within The Shetland Times newspaper to ensure it reaches the majority or the Shetland public, informing them of the latest phase of construction, what’s due to happen next, as well as introducing them to some of the key employees involved in the project.

Having recently produced “Issue 16” we have approximately six issues left to run before the school is due to be finished. We hope all goes well over the next few months and that the school remains on track to be completed on schedule.

If you want to keep your customers or the Shetland community up to date with the latest news from your company call us to discuss how we can help you raise awareness and engagement through the power of print and our unique distribution services.

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.

This book was first published in December 2016 and has been so popular it has already been reprinted twice!

Into the Southern Ocean by Andrew Halcrow tells the epic tale of circumnavigating the world on a five year voyage on the yacht Elsi Arrub, built by the author and his brother. Andrew’s ambition to then sail around the world single-handed and non-stop is recounted as he shares how it feels to be in the teeth of fierce gales, a continuous storm and how a burst appendix and septicaemia ended one attempt. It’s a remarkable story told in plain seaman’s language and we hope to have it back on sale in The Shetland Times Bookshop before Christmas.

It’s out in paperback and was published and printed by us and is available to buy in our Shetland Times retail bookshop or online at www.shetlandtimes.co.uk/shop

Author Erik Young provides us with a passport to the foreign port of Lerwick in the 1940s, 50s and 60s where everything is simultaneously familiar but different as he remembers what it was like to grow up in post-war Shetland.

Verse, prose and pictures of the sites, sounds, characters and places of the author’s Lerwick childhood provide a great insight and refreshing tour around Shetland.

This book is designed, printed and published by us, and if you are interested in getting more information on how to get a book published give us a call or drop an email to our publication manager c.black@shetlandtimes.co.uk

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.
