Transforming a silver van with a black part wrap and gold vinyl lettering has certainly helped our client get noticed as he goes about his business!

From coming up with the concept, designing and printing the graphics to installing them in our print shop, our vehicle graphics service keeps the time your vehicle has to be off the road down to a minimum. It also helps businesses large or small to #shoplocalfirst for all the vehicle and signage requirements.

Take a quick peek at our products booklet by following this link View our Brochure here and we’d be glad to advise and help you get your next print or large format project up and running and completed on schedule within your requested timescales, of course!

A great design and signage project to be involved in with our client led to us having Vikings and their galleys in Lerwick’s main shopping area – and you could talk to them!

Vikings Harald and Erik had their outfits designed with their galley and crew following on prior to us getting bespoke foam board signage cut to shape for mounting our printed graphics to. It was part of month long promotion to celebrate the annual Up Helly A’ fire festival.

We supplied additional signage with rails and clamps for displaying on lamp posts and display boards to attract passer by which all contributed to the overall project being hailed a success by our client and those who participated.

With a huge selection of signage options available at our print shop, why not give us a quick call and we’ll help you have a positive outcome too.

Large paginations are no problem for us to produce and this 632pp, casebound book is a tribute to the many thousands of Shetlanders who went to the whaling in the Arctic during Shetland’s long involvement in what was then called the Greenland whaling trade.

Our cover design was very well received and producing the book whilst being in continuous contact with the author allowed us to provide advice and technical information to ensure the final product met their expectations.

If you have a book of local interest to Shetland that you’d like to publish, our publications manager would be happy to discuss the possibilities with you. Contact Charlotte Black for an initial discussion – c.black@shetlandtimes.co.uk

This PUR bound paperback book includes a 16 page colour section and was recently printed using our customer’s supplied PDF files.

It is part of the Shetland Rural Islands Maritime Heritage Asset Atlas Project (SRIMHAA) funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund. The aim of the project was to detail the maritime heritage found in Fair Isle, Papa Stour and Out Skerries using field survey techniques on the islands and researching each of the islands within the Shetland Museum and Archives and the Shetland Library to give a fuller picture of the people who lived and worked there. This book only covers a small part of the interesting history Fair Isle, Papa Stour and Out Skerries have to offer but hopefully it will encourage you to find out more.

Following the success of the first book we published in 2o1o for Robert Johnson, Da Wye I Saa It, this is a delightful collection of photographs reminding everyone of Shetland not so distant but already perhaps fading from memory and all most certainly very different from life on the island today.

From the 1960’s through to the 2000’s readers will undoubtedly have memories restored that will stimulate reminiscences.

As the islands most prolific publisher of local books, we are glad to have helped show you a glimpse through the lens of Shetland’s social history. The book is available now from our bookshop https://shop.shetlandtimes.co.uk/products/aa-my-mindin

Printing service testimonial – “Excellent service, above and beyond, and offering really good value

Filed under: Printed Jobs

Printing service testimonial – “Excellent service, above and beyond, and offering really good value too” – Tom Morton. 

We worked with Tom to produce this information booklet for North Roe Primary school and Nort Energy to a very tight deadline and are delighted to hear that the booklet is selling well. Getting it ready to go on sale at the annual Shetland Craft Fair was the main aim and we hear the pupils did a great job promoting and selling their product.

This ring bound booklet, with protective cover, contains advice on how to get the best from your Polycrub and the cultivation projects grown within it. The text is accompanied by helpful photos and interviews with growers. The Polycrub was developed locally to withstand the harsh Shetland winter environment and provides sheltered, all year round growing potential for crofters and gardeners.
