It's a good idea, but I think I would fail getting the right person on 
the line there. They just rely on their IT to put things right, so they 
don't care. And what's 50,000 flyers for them? Just 7 boxes of waste 
paper, so let's carry on.

But anyway, I'll try to get an answer. IF they can say now anyway, as 
they have already changed anything. At least that was what the second 
guy said. The first one just said that once in a while such things 
happen. And the printer folks don't even take the time to check for the 
first prints that come out of the machine, they just put the address 
label on the box. Maybe they are illiterate? :)
