Pull up banners are fantastic for grabbing the attention of passers-by, potential customers, sponsors and anyone who is attending the event you are working at.

We have a variety of stands (standard – mid range – premium) depending on what your budget may be or where the banner is located. For regular events, meetings or shows we recommend our standard or mid range cassette stands or if you perhaps want a long term banner for your reception area, we can let you see our premium option.

They are all very easy to set up, take down and pack into the carrying cases that we supply with every banner and are, of course, reusable. We can also reskin (most) cassettes that you may already have with new banner designs and content. The robust grey back PVC material we use is long lasting and reproduces bright, colourful printed images.

We’ll discuss your intended end use for the banners and happily create designs that suit the event/s you are attending, your corporate image, the main outcomes you want to get from the banner and if you need them to last for a long or short term. Give us a call, we’re keen to get your project started!

The Shetland Folk Festival is coming around quickly and we always enjoy helping their committee to promote, advertise and market the event.

These flyers are always sought after to get a glimpse of the early line-up and are generally distributed on the UK mainland to generate interest for visitors to come up to Shetland for festival (and some bands are probably tempted too!).

Flyers and leaflets for events are still a great marketing tool to include within your online and social media promotional mix. They provide a visual and tactile option to help ensure your events are well attended and are available in short or long run quantities and in variety of size formats to best suit your needs. We’re happy to design them for you too to give them that extra special touch.

Why not also get us to help get a programme produced for your event too? We’re experienced in providing a wide choice of programme options for our clients’ and can help you decide which will work well for your event and project manage this for you as we know you’ll have a lot of other time consuming organising on your plate!

We’re off now to continue working on getting the official 2019 SFFS programme ready so we hope you make it to the festival this year or perhaps for the 40th Shetland Folk Festival which will no doubt to even more brilliant than all the previous events.

J.W. Gray & Co have recently had new sign writing graphics installed on their Ford Transit L4 H3 van!

Their company colours are displayed using four coloured vinyls which we cut on our digital press prior to registering and installing onto the van. Having a tailgate on the vehicle wasn’t an issue as the graphics for the back of the vehicle were designed to fit the main visual areas available.

We also supply full colour visuals for vehicles as well as our “print and cut” service which allows graphics/photographs/logos to be printed in full colour and then cut to shape to suit your choice of vehicle.

Let us know if you have a single vehicle or fleet of vehicles that you require graphics for and we’ll provide advice and quotations for making them look great too.

Congratulations to Arch Henderson on their first 100 years in operation.

Fittingly the book we have just printed and bound for them is called “The First 100 Years, 1919-2019” and will be of great interest to those in the engineering and architecture industries. With the 28 short chapters taking you from their early years through the various projects they have been involved in up to the present day punctuated with some great sepia, mono and full colour images, the book provides an insight into how the industries have changed over the decades.

This was a short run project for us and printed using our digital printing service so if you have a book you’d like to publish, we’d be happy to help you through the production stages. We’ll offer advice to make it as cost efficient and viable for you to produce. The book is available by contacting Arch Henderson’s Lerwick office.

Please contact us on studio@shetlandtimes.co.uk, call us on 01595 742000 or drop in along our Gremista print shop. Hope to see you soon.

Another month is here, and I can’t believe I’m already sitting here writing the editorial. April is characterised by unpredictable showery weather, and on the walk to school this morning we had sunshine, showers and hail (and I narrowly avoided a drookling), but
I was heartened to see the first daffodils, a sure sign of spring here in Shetland.

This month’s magazine has a distinct underwater feel. Anyone who knows me will know that I am passionate about shipwrecks and the stories they can tell us about the past. In this issue, we’ll introduce you to a few of these fascinating wreck sites. I was honoured that Dr Colin Martin and Dr Paula Martin took the time from their busy research commitments to give the readers of Shetland Life a tantalising glimpse of the wreck of the Armada ship El Gran Grifón, wrecked off Fair Isle in 1588.

With a population of about 60, Fair Isle is well represented in the magazine this month, and I – like the community at large – was deeply shocked and saddened by the news that the world-renowned Fair Isle Bird Observatory had been lost to fire. As is so often the case in Shetland, the community rallied and it wasn’t long before a funding appeal exceeded £20,000. And this sense of community is felt throughout the magazine as we meet the team at Promote Shetland who work hard to celebrate the best of island life.

We’re delighted to introduce a new bi-monthly feature from Misa Hay, author and creator of the My Shetland Garden blog. Misa will join our team with gardening advice and tips for growing at 60 north – and all the challenges our northern latitude can bring to the would-be gardener.

As ever, I’d love to hear from you, give a shout-out on social media, email sleditor@shetlandtimes.co.uk or write me a good old-fashioned letter.

And as I conclude, another heavy ‘April shower’ is back assaulting the window pane – time to put the kettle on.
Happy reading.

Raise awareness of your business, products, services and events by utilising our design, printing and distribution services.

We love to take your content and create artwork that will catch the attention of readers and let them know more about what you have to offer. Although some businesses assume everyone knows what they do and can provide, we’ve found that it’s always a good plan to remind potential and current customers now and again.

Promoting new or current services, different products, new product lines and offers can often lead to orders being placed or further recognition of what local business can offer. We can also distribute your promotional work throughout Shetland to ensure wide coverage to help get your message across locally.

Supporting business and informing the Shetland community is part of our service and we welcome visitors to call along our print shop or contact us to help get your projects underway. Let’s get going and let everyone know how good your business is and why they should be calling you!

Now that we are hopefully going to be moving into a better spell of weather, let’s get all your vehicles and vessels looking nifty for the lighter nights.

We print vinyl graphics in single and full colour to help promote your business or highlight your vessel name. The high performance calendered sign vinyl we use have a solvent based adhesive that is extremely strong with durability for up to eight years. This provides a secure bond to keep your graphics looking good and gives you peace of mind that they will perform well.

Let’s have a discussion about what you’d like to do and then we’ll provide the best solution, create a design and application service to get you looking good! We look forward to meeting with you.

To add a touch of class to any self-adhesive stickers, labelling or badges you are contemplating producing, add our doming service and products to your list when considering how to get the best from your project.

We design, print on gloss white vinyl and then add a mercury free, beautifully clear and durable polyurethane resin dome to create an eye-catching label that’s ideal for most indoor and some outdoor applications. They work best on flat, non-porous surfaces on which they will be splash-proof.

They are great for producing centres for sports trophies too and we can produce centres that have your sports club name to add that bespoke aspect that can be treasured by the recipients for years to come. Adding them to keyrings, bottle openers or tools to add extra personalisation is all possible. We’ve even produced name tags for a Jarl’s Squad Up Helly Aa shields!

To try our customised 3D domed labels on your product drop by to see our sample range and we can discuss your project further.
