Banners, posters, fabric, wallpaper & flag printing, just to name a few. The people at Arrow printing are qualified, quick and understand the wishes of the customer. And not unimportant, they speak English. Yessir!

It’s not always easy to build up your book collection in Saigon. Fahasa is a good choice and you will find a decent selection of all types of books. If you need stationary or children’s books and toys, you will not be disappointed. There are multiple locations throughout the city, but this one is our favorite!

76A Le Loi, D1

Thu Vu Stationary Shop is where to head for a  good stash of stationary. Envelopes in various sizes, (print)paper, all kinds of pens & pencils, painting utilities, folders and so on. It’s cheap and conveniently located on Le Loi. Don’t expect any English so here’s your chance to learn some Vietnamese numbers. Mot, hai, ba!

64 B3 Xuan Thuy, D2

It doesn’t get more old school than this… Bring your USB-stick and choose the pictures you want to get printed with the person sitting behind the counter. You’ll have them the following day. Don’t expect the newest, fanciest, shiniest photo paper, but it will definitely do. Take note: you can also get passport photos taken here, however from our experience they may not be clear enough for an actual passport renewal. Fine for other purposes though.

2A Thao Dien St., D2

This place is in the frame! You can get all your posters, paintings and pictures framed here for a very decent price. The selection is small (unless you’re into kitsch) but it’s certainly good enough and the owners are friendly, professional and quick. Here’s your chance to start decorating those big, white walls.

Hoa Nang is also great in copying paintings. While you’re there browse his collection of paintings to buy.
