Best Wishes: Bijenhuis

Modern franking machines have more than one mark in one machine.

"Het Bijenhuis" uses this possibility to send her customers the best wishes for Christmas and New Year. "Het Bijenhuis" (the bee house) is the business part of the largest Dutch beekeepers association (VBBN).

A nice gesture from "Het Bijenhuis" ? Being a Dutch Company you can guess it's not just a nice gesture. The normal postal rate is 39 Euro cent. At Christmas time the rate is 29 Euro cent. Indeed: only for the Christmas mail, but nobody checks it.
