Press passing for TANK Magazine at our fantastic printers in Poland
It’s always interesting to get to go on a press pass to a new factory and this was no exception. We landed in Warsaw at 7:30 on the Wednesday evening and will be landing back home (well Luton) 7:30 the next day.
Our hotel was in the beautiful old town and was particularly ‘quirky’!
The concierge didn’t say much!
We arrived in torrential rain so decided to choose a restaurant close to the hotel – next door in fact – looks like we had walked into a Hunting Lodge.

It’s always a tricky process getting the colours absolutely perfect – on the first sheet we have a very heavy red advert on one end of the sheet and a very yellow image at the other – making sure we get the yellow as vibrant as we can without turning the red too pink was a challenge.
There were also lots of flesh tones to get right in the mix.
It’s clear we have a great press minder in Raphael who is very responsive and within 4 passes we have the first sheet approved.
