Where could I buy funny (adult) birthday cards in Zurich?

Hi there. I was hoping someone could tell me if they know of a good card shop here in Zurich that dealt with humor items, especially with birthday cards, in English preferably but I don't mind German either.

Thanks in advance for all your input.

They're not getting it, are they, OP? Nobody, and I mean nobody, does snarky, hilarious greeting cards like the UK. Not even America. Not even close. Whenever I go to London I bring back, probably, 25 random birthday/greeting cards.

You will not find them here. Just buy them in bulk and stock up when you go back home.

Username could suggest that they have a familiarity/appreciation of any or all of the following, though:

- area of SW London,
- football,
- Elvis Costello songs,
- the Clintons (no not Clintons Cards),
- crap, reality TV shows.



OP - you can always DIY. Here is just one example, found at random:

Moonpig, based in the U.K. allows you to order online and get moderately funny cards delivered here.

Re: Where could I buy funny (adult) birthday cards in Zurich?

I was charged with getting a funny postcard for the birthday of my boss a week ago, and it was not easy... Might have something to do with the fact that I do not share the same kind of humor with the local postcards producers, though... (there was either really kitsch stereotypes about men, stupid "Denglish" signs, or really poor jokes about becoming half a century...).

I found one in the "Buch Paradies". Also looked in the local McPaperland. The Manor had some, but the choice they had here was a bit too serious (what's up with the fascination of flowers as soon as you hit 50? Is it to prepare you for the grave or something???? ).

They all had postcards in English, French and German.

BTW folks. The key word here is "ADULT"

I think we have gone off topic and I for one would like some better more relevant posts.

Re: Where could I buy funny (adult) birthday cards in Zurich?

Gary Larson cartoons were always my favourite birthday cards, but then they stopped making them . Now I just use moonpig and get them sent over to Switzerland. I've yet to find a decent card in Switzerland, and they're normally ridiculously expensive.

Thanks everyone for your input. I guess its true you can only get really good adult cards in London. I regret not buying some when I went there earlier this month. Will have to settle for moonpig.

Re: Where could I buy funny (adult) birthday cards in Zurich?

I recall a shop towards the Southern end of Niederdorstrasse with quite a few comical cards. Not sure if they classify as 'adult' though

I second the moonpig suggestion.

Great online service for personalising cards, which I use to send to relatives and friends around Europe.
