Just get yourself a multifunction printer, you can get a HP one for about 100 chf then you can scan, print and copy to your hearts content.

Scanners are available for less than CHF 100 at MediaMarkt and InterDiscount etc, Multi-Function machines for less than CHF 300. I use a scanner, I bought at EPA many years ago for CHF 45.-- and it still works, and as Canon had the decency to upgrade the free internet backup I could improve the machine to quite modern standards WITHOUT costs !

Sure, if it really just is less than 10 such scans for the entire year, then I might recommend the shop in the Landesmuseum-Halle of Zch-HB (towards the Limmat on the right side). They in fact have been in business since about 1970. At a time when photocopiers were rare and did cost a fortune, and when each copy did cost the present equivalent of CHF 2.-- ! And when in our company, just one such apparatus got installed and the chief secretary had to keep records of every single copy.

But no, buy your own scanner .................

Re: Cheap place for scan and print documents in Zurich

Today after googling, I got this website where I can transfer my .pdf files online to a my choice of printer station and then travel to that place to collect it. To be on safer side I have sent it to an attended station Let's hope everything goes smooth. http://www.vppspy.ethz.ch/tools/vpplist.php

What is the difference? If you have to travel anyways to collect, why not carry the documents in a flash drive or access your documents while email. By not doing so, you might be compromising with your private data.

Re: Cheap place for scan and print documents in Zurich

Your're right of course. I just noticed that a newish member had dug up the Thread again and added a link in his post. Obviously sometimes the information is helpful, but often the new person is 'linked' to the link. Moderatiing on here for a couple of years makes one so, so, so suspicious.

Re: Cheap place for scan and print documents in Zurich

When I was trying to look for a place to print without actually owning a printer, I came across this post which was hardly had any information. My intention was to enrich the knowledge base.

Yes, it may not be ideal for sending your confidential data. But I did get my 30 copies for 3 CHF.....I am happy.

Even in 2020 this post is helpful: looking for a place to print thank you cards!
My printer does not support thick paper
And I can only find ugly or stupid expensive cards

Re: Cheap place for scan and print documents in Zurich

In the midst of the coronavirus shutdown, any idea where I could get documents printed?



Can I go to the post office to get a photo copy of the hard copy of the documents?


Btw, this thread has helped me multiple times. Thanks all!

Re: Cheap place for scan and print documents in Zurich

Postal offices are open, so yeah would be your best bet.

(or order a scanner/printer for at home, more expensive but so convenient to have.)

Every Migros has a photocopier. The shops are open, I would imagine you can use the machines
