Lie on the envelope

This is the bubble envelope that Moyo Go Studio comes in. To keep the cost down to customers, it's not sent by registered mail because only in less than 1% of cases, a letter doesn't arrive in time and in that case I send a new copy but for the contents I write something like "cardboard sample demo". Because my post office asks me 10.75 USD extra to send MoyoGo registered. That's more expensive than sending another copy. That's the disadvantage of living in one of the world's most expensive cities. A beer across the street is 9 USD. One would almost be relieved that summer lasts only two weeks here.

The customs declaration specifies "CD", even when it's a DVD. This is to minimize the risk of theft. It is sent as a "gift" and the value is "none".
