Paper [nice paper, where to find it]

Sorry - don't know where this should go..

I am looking for some paper - well embossed card and have no idea where to get this - basically if anyone knows it I'm looking for a place like Paperchase on Tottenham Court Road in London (ie has a large art department upstairs). Anyone know where I can get something like this in Zurich??

Re: Paper [nice paper, where to find it]

Well let me see, any department store or major shop with a paper section, or any shop which specialises in selling this type of stuff. I recall seeing and visiting quite a few around Bahnhofstrasse and the surrounding areas.

Are you having difficulty locating these types of shops or departments within stores for some reason?

Re: Paper [nice paper, where to find it]

I'm afraid from my husbands point of view I know the shops on Banhofstrasse well.....

I had a look in the paper department of the Coop there this morning but they didn't have any - neither did a couple of other shops but will have a look at Manor - I think that has a bigger paper department

Landolt-Arbenz on the Bahnhofstrasse (near Globus, on that side of the road). It's probably the most expensive and exclusive location you can imagine for buying anything remotely related to paper, writing materials, pens etc., but if they don't have or can't source what you need, nobody can! Good luck

Re: Paper [nice paper, where to find it]

I've found what I thought was nice writing stuff at Globus, reasonably priced.

If you're looking to customize your own, there is a stationary shop on Rennweg with an art section as well. I don't know the name, but it's close to the health food store (Reformhaus).

There is a beautiful card /stationary shop on Bhanhoffstrasse in Zurich. It is opposite Bally and next o a chocolate shop. Take your credit card though because it is expensive but absolute beautiful. There is a downstairs too which has loads of paper etc.

That would be Landolt und Arbenz

This shop is called Zumstein and I personally would recommend them unless you have a large budget. Keeping in mind that Coop is a supermarket, I'm not really suprised you didn't find nice paper there....

Re: Paper [nice paper, where to find it]

Any idea where I could find stores which have a decent variety of good quality printer A4 papers?
Brands like Antalis, etc...?

Thanks in advance!!
