This personalized postage stamp (Marke Individuell) of the Allega (Germany) depicts a modern high speed train moving down the track. Allega appears to be a technical services company. Caption reads, "Everyday life made easy!"

Stamp shows the cancellation of "Briefzentrum 78", the letter processing center at Villingen-Schwenningen. This is a "medium-sized" facility processing 750,000 to 1.5 million pieces per day (Wikipedia).
