What do you like the most? Postcards or envelopes?I myself like both. Only with the current rates, the sending of a postcard costs the same as an envelope. So when I send out a postcard, it costs the same as sending out an envelope with included 3…Continue

Received an envelope full of letters. Which I had to blog:

The following envelope has a funny story. I received a note from the Dutch post company, who said I had to pay € 1,08, because a received piece of mail was said to have only one stamp instead of the necessary three stamps.

I was curious to know which mail they meant, so I looked it up via the added "Portincidentnummer" ('postage incident number'). And to my surprise I saw this:

(In which they mixed the sender (= afzender) and the receiver (= geadresseerde), but that's an other story).
It was a large envelope from Ruud Janssen, which was delivered a few days before. With enough postage on it!

But the stamps were camouflaged among the colourful painting.
So I wrote a polite letter to the post company to tell that I thought they had made a mistake. Which costed me (because of the weight, a print-screen of that web page and a scanned printed image of the envelope in addition) two stamps :-)
 
And I received a letter, full of apologies! So due to their mistake I received some more mail.
I hope that the postal worker who had checked the postage won't be fired, because I really think it hard to find the stamps. Can you see them?
