Where can I buy contact paper?

Any place online or near Basel where to get contact paper or self adhesive paper to protect books?

Haven't found any.
Any way to move this post? I accidentally place it under the wrong forum

Papeterie Zumstein in Freiestrasse, next to Marktplatz. Call first and ask for "Deko(r)folie(n)".

You could also try Bider & Tanner, the large bookshop at Bankverein (at the top of Freiestrasse). Not sure if they have clear contact vinyl, but they do have this.

Re: Where can I buy contact paper?

Here you go, OP: a range of transparent, adhesive vinyl foil for covering books. All at attractive Swiss prices. 4th floor of the aforementioned Zumstein.

Zoom the photo to see dimensions and prices. There's also a super-giant 5m X 100cm roll, but you'll need to mortgage your house or grandmother to buy it.

Re: Where can I buy contact paper?

Here's a link to the section of Migros that sells hardware and materials for arts and crafts projects. This is not the same as the Migros supermarket.

Re: Where can I buy contact paper?

In case anyone else comes back to this thread, Coop (mine is a relatively small one) sells it at CHF 4.95 for 3m x 40 cm (called Selbstklebefolie transparent in DE and Pellicule adhésive transparent in FR). It can be found on the bottom level of where they have all of the office supplies.

Migros (my local one is a MM) also have it 3m x 45cm for CHF 3.90. They call it Hefteinband, selbstklebend in DE and Couverture pour cahiers, autocollante in FR. It can be found on the lower shelf of where they have all of the office supplies.
