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

…..asked many locals as the naked (top right) van cruised past. We are delighted with our new van graphics and are can now reveal – it’s us, The Shetland Times!!

Promoting our core business of design & print, weekly printed newspaper, monthly magazine and online news portal, we hope our eye-catching graphics (and van colour) get more potential customers talking. And talking to us about utilising all our products and services.

The newspaper brand is very well known but can sometimes lead to our other products and services being overshadowed. The van graphics are to remind all potential clients that our design team and print factory facilities (we have the only commercial print presses on the island) are available to them.

Well designed promotional print products still pack a mighty punch, have an enviable reach and provide great ROI. In this age of multimedia marketing and communication, print retains a number of unique qualities that grab the attention of consumers. By integrating print and online services, we help manage and provide our customers with highly effective cross media packages that can include online advertising, videos and podcast promotions.

We foresee our latest weapon, the green machine, will help us get this message across.
