Where to find photocopy shop in Bangkok

Who would have thought a simple photocopy needs can pose to be a problem in the Land of Smiles? Yes, photocopy service – a service seems to be not widely available, especially at residential area.

In needs to make copy of documents, I asked my boyfriend to search (in Thai) for me. I assumed that it’s just like back home, whereby most photoshops also provide photocopy service, but it seems to be otherwise here. ร้านถ่ายกระดาษ or ร้านถ่ายเอกสาร is the magic word, if you need to search for one – ร้านถ่ายกระดาษ or ร้านถ่ายเอกสาร is directly translated as “shop take photo (copy) of paper/document”.

I was lucky enough that there’s one photoshop which comes with photocopy service, just 5 mins walk from my place. If you’re in the same neighbourhood at Ladprao or Chatuchak area, the shop is located next to 7-11 in between Ladprao Soi 20 and 22, and it’s directly opposite Maru 15 Condo. From MRT Ladprao, take exit 2, turn left and walk straight ahead, you’ll see the 7-11.

They charge 2 baht per copy for A4-size Black & white print – pricey, yes,. But, it’ll reduce to 1 baht per copy with a minimum of 20 pieces copy order. For color copy, A4 size – price list states 5-20 baht.

I have also seen convenience shops like Lawsons at MRT Phra Ram 9 providing this service, and here’s a blog mentioning 7-11 convenience stores.

Travel opens up a whole new world, which is cliche but true. I am a strong advocate for independent and solo travel. I was born and raised in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia but now live in Bangkok, Thailand, resulted from a chance encounter in 2009 with my why-are-you-Thai bf. I am now split between two countries. One country for my bf, another for the family, for the occasional weekend together.
