We’ve been busy over the last few months enjoying helping out our maritime community to get their craft shipshape. With more time than expected, due to obvious reasons, it seems that many have been able to progress their boat projects during the last few months which is great (every cloud…..)!

It’s been great to see the variety of projects in Shetland and we’ve had fun designing and creating the graphics for small rowing boats, pleasure cruisers and inshore fishing boats up to the massive trawl doors used by our pelagic fleet.

Regardless of the size of the project, we put our heart and soul into each one as we know how important it is to get the end result our clients have envisage for their vessel.

We’re happy to come out on location to measure up and discuss your project prior to creating the design work and then return to install the graphics onsite for you. Equally, if you’d like us to create the artwork and make it ready for you to install yourself we’re happy to accommodate that option too.

Give us a call on 01595 74200 or email studio@shetlandtimes.co.uk and we’ll help add the finishing touches to your vessel.

For many years we have had the pleasure of printing envelopes (known as First Day Covers) for Up Helly A’ on behalf of the Guizer Jarl. These are a limited edition run of 500 copies and various items and information relating to the Up Helly A’ festival is placed within the envelope. It is then sealed, has a bespoke Jarl Squad hand stamp applied and is then, crucially, signed by the Guizer Jarl to make it truly unique.

They are priced at £3.50 and are only available at Harry’s Department Store and Freefield Post Office which a both based in Lerwick, the capital of Shetland. Only going on sale annually on the last Tuesday of January, Up Helly A’ day, these are sought after by collectors, visitors and locals alike and are snapped up quickly.

In 2019, permission was given for us to produce a “smiler sticker” which is also applied onto the envelope. It is not an officially recognised Post Office stamp and cannot be used for postage. Smilers stamps evolved from Royal Mail’s greetings stamps which were issued in the 1990s. These greetings stamps were designed for use with birthday cards and other personal mail. The name “smilers” was adopted to reflect that the sheets are designed to be used as celebrations of happy events.

Each year we hope to continue printing and cutting these vinyl stamps, specific to each year, to celebrate this wonderful event. The 2019 stamp depicts the Guizer Jarl as a young guizer alongside his two brothers and father.

Happy New Year! Another year has come around and another decade marches in. New Year is a time of hope, but it’s also a time for reflection and looking back on all that’s passed. It can be a chance to make resolutions, to wipe the slate clean but also to remember friends and loved ones who are no longer with us. I try not to make resolutions, as I never seem to keep them past February. If you do make resolutions, or would like to make changes, then Alex Garrick-Wright has some ideas to help inspire you.

January is also the month that Up-Helly-A’ season kicks off, starting in Scalloway on the 10th. This issue includes behind-the-scenes access to preparations for Shetland’s largest celebration, the Lerwick Up-Helly-A’. Best of luck to Liam Summers and his squad, I hope you have a fantastic day!

For me, this has to be the most difficult editorial I’ve had to write, as it’s my last. It is with a very heavy heart that I have decided to leave Shetland Life after 12 months in post. I have loved editing the magazine, and feel incredibly privileged – if daunted – to have stood in the shoes of editors like JR Nicolson who founded the magazine back in 1981, before I was even a twinkle in my dad’s eye. It is also with great sadness that this will also be the last issue of Shetland Life.

Over the years Shetland Life has come to mean so much to so many. It has been a place to get lost in Shetland’s rich culture, history and community. It has been an invaluable resource not just for the readers, but for visitors, budding young writers and researchers alike.

I couldn’t write this without thanking all the readers and contributors who have given up their time to be interviewed, write features and offer feedback and advice, not just since I took over, but since the magazine’s conception in the early 80s. Without you, the magazine would never have had such a rich flavour and diverse content.

A huge thanks must also go to all our readers who have supported Shetland Life over the years – thank you.

Wishing everyone all the best for the coming year.
