2-in-1 puzzles: advantages and disadvantages

Handy you think, but there are advantages and disadvantages.
- Benefit: if you want to buy a second-hand puzzle from Jan van Haasteren, it is an advantage for the shipping costs. Because as a buyer of a second-hand puzzle you always pay the shipping costs. If you buy 1 puzzle, you pay € 7,25 in shipping costs. If you buy a second-hand Jan van Haasteren 2-in-1 puzzle, you also pay € 7,25 in shipping costs. That can make a difference. Unless you also buy 2 separate puzzles of 1000 pieces, those shipping costs are also € 7,25 (can be combined into 1 package). Usually you pay around € 10 euros for a second-hand puzzle (1000 pieces), can be a little more, can be a little less. The 2-in-1 door is often offered slightly cheaper than the standard € 20.
- Benefit: Some of the 2-in-1 puzzles have a similar theme, such as the above image with the 2-in-1 that has a "Christmas" theme. If you like to make a puzzle about a certain theme, you immediately have two that fit together.
– Disadvantage: it could be that if you want to sell your puzzle, your market will shrink a bit, because some people already have or have already made 1 of the 2 puzzles. Then selling or bartering can become a bit more difficult.
– Disadvantage: with some 2-in-1 (or 3-in-1), there are 2 very small posters measuring 29 centimeters wide and 21 centimeters high. That's not very big, but the images on the box are much smaller. If you're puzzling and can't seem to find a piece, the tiny pictures on the 2-in-1 box won't help you at all! The very small poster will help you a little more, but it will still remain small. So if you buy second-hand, ask to be sure whether that small poster is included. Some Jan van Haasteren puzzles contain a larger poster of the format 68 (width) x 49 (height). They are the same size as the puzzle itself. I'm a bit unsure, I think these large posters only come with a 3-in-1 box.
