These self-adhesive name plate vinyl sign stickers were printed and outline cut to the required finished size on our large format printer. Our latest machine has the ability to print and cut to any shape so if you require lettering or logos cut to an exact shape drop in along and we can get these ready for you.

We also laminated these sign stickers to help protect them against the elements and we recommend/apply as as a general rule, that any outdoor signage gets this protective coating added. Our laminating film also helps protect against U.V. rays to keep the colours on your signage looking better for longer.

Simmer Dim

I can’t let this month pass without mentioning one of the many ‘wonders’ of Shetland – the Simmer Dim. The dictionary definition is understated: the twilight of Shetland summer evening. We all know that the Simmer Dim is oh so much more than this, don’t we? For me, it brings a sense of endless possibilities under the dappled evening sunshine, with hills to climb, regattas to attend, beaches to explore and so much more to discover and enjoy.

Joining in with this sense of adventure, this month’s Shetland Life is bursting with feel-good vibes. Dale Smith shares his favourite photos from this year’s 39th annual folk festival. We take to the water and find out more about Shetland’s competitive rowing teams who compete throughout the summer at regattas, and Fenton and friends head to the disused fishing station at Fethaland.

I’ve been out in the garden a lot this month, and it’s encouraging to see the Polycrub coming to life again. Everything is flourishing, and I’ve seen plenty of pollinators busily doing their thing among our raspberry canes. If you’re keen to learn more about growing in Shetland, but are unsure where to start, then this month’s Shetland Life should provide some essential reading! Ali Grundon Robertson has gone green-fingered at Turriefield and Brae, and Misa Hay shares more gardening inspiration from her own garden in Tingwall.

Next month the schools break for the summer holidays, and I would like to include a summer holiday checklist in the July issue; things to see, do and enjoy here on our doorstep. I would love to add your suggestions too. What’s on your Shetland summer holiday bucket-list this year? Where do you return to time and time again? Is there a favourite haunt that you love to explore… or an ideal spot for a family picnic? Email your suggestions to sleditor@shetlandtimes.co.uk.

As ever, I’d love to hear from you. Give a shout-out on social media, email or write me a good old-fashioned letter.

Happy reading,

Laurie.

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.

If you need large format posters (or posters of maps in this case), we can print up to 1600mm wide on our digital press and up to 50m long should that every be required!

As with all maps, the relevant permissions have to be provided and approved prior to using the graphics and the RSPB came with those for us and getting the five unique A0 (841 x 1189mm) maps ready for them to take out on the road to use at their events was a pleasure.

Due to the fact the maps will be used at a variety of events and venues, it was important they were robust enough to withstand constant use. We discussed this with the RSPB and recommended that printing them on a light but tearproof PVC stock would help meet their specifications. If you are attending any of their events, we hope you find the maps a useful addition to the talks.

Let us know if you need advice on posters to help promote or enhance your event as we’d be happy to assist.

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.
