Where to buy a name tag for my letterbox?

Does anyone know where I can buy a name tag for my letterbox and doorbell? Online would be easiest.

If not online I'm in Zürich/Zollikon. Do they they sell them at the post office?

Just my experience.

Your landlord/agent will give your name to the company who do that for your building (they have the sizes etc.) You should get a letter from them then and an invoice with the order. For now just stick your name on the letter box so you get the letter.

Any Mr Minit shop (Large train stations, inside large shops) will order one for you. You need to know the exact measurement of course....

Or online https://www.google.ch/?gfe_rd=cr&ei=...er+briefkasten

Thanks for the reply.

I've already got a paper sticker, just want to get something a bit longer lasting and that matches the other letterboxes for our building.

Have already asked the landlord: we rent privately and they only know of a small key-cutting shop close to where they live which isn't convenient for me.

Planning to look out for a key-cutters/similar in central Zürich next time I go shopping, just thought I'd see if someone could point me in the right direction.

Mister Minit do it - there's one in the Coop on Bahnhofstrasse.

Depends if you need the exact item to slot in, or just a nicer aluminium/whatever one to stick or screw on.
