The design is smart! I bought a few, so that I could keep all my paper for different projects in good condition. Everything now looks as if it were just printed: no wrinkles, stains, or water-marks.

I'll never go back to less durable or less protective folders. I believe the demand will grow, once folks catch on; then maybe we'll see some great patterns available too. My vote would be for some quatrefoil patterns.

Until then, I'm glad for my pink and superbly constructed folder. Thanks!

This looks like it would be a great folder that holds papers in place. However the label that Mead slaps on the front ( takes up 1/4 of the folder) is nearly impossible to remove without leaving sticky residue behind. Had to stay up late the night before school trying to get it off. Finally gave up until I could get to the store to buy some GooGone and still would not come off completely! I will be throwing these away and replacing them.

                Hoping these folders help keep my son organized. This is his struggle. Seems to be durable so far. I was actually looking for another plastic folder that worked very well for him. Appears it has been discontinued. The one I liked had holes to insert into a 3-ring binder, clear top pocket to insert course syllabus, and non- slip pockets. Please bring them back!

                Most of the teachers are asking for these folders in a variety of colors. I consider them a good value because they usually hold up a semester or more. Fingerprints and stray marks are easily removed. They are sturdy enough for little hands to insert and remove papers easily. For a while, they were difficult to locate, but most stores that carry school supplies now keep them in stock.

                I have already purchased 5 of these and I am pleased with the way they hold so much yet I can find everything. Since they come in so many colors, it is easy to organize them. Plus the colors match so many other items that you offer. That isn't the case with other manufacturers. For the price, it is easy to keep organized and not worry about papers getting wrinkled or torn. Thanks.

                  • Cartridge Types
                  • Ink & Toner Basics
                  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life

                  Genuine or OEM (Original) Cartridges Remanufactured Cartridges Compatible Cartridges
                  Description OEM stands for original equipment manufacturer, meaning the cartridge was made by the same company that made your printer. Original brand cartridges are very reliable and sometimes the only option if your printer is new to market or uncommon. Remanufactured ink is a genuine brand cartridge that has gone through one cycle of use. After use, the cartridge is recycled, acquired by a remanufacturing facility and put through a rigorous professional refurbishing process. During the refurbishing process the cartridge is disassembled, thoroughly cleaned and tested for quality. It's then carefully refilled, tested again and brought back to life. Buying remanufactured prevents one less cartridge from ending up in a landfill. A compatible cartridge is a brand new ink cartridge built by a manufacturer other than your printer. It's like buying the generic version of the genuine brand. Most are uniquely designed to differentiate from genuine cartridges. Despite any structural difference you may notice, the cartridge will still fit in your machine and print a full yield, just like the original brand.
                  Price Factors Many printer manufacturers follow the razor-and-blades business model which may result in higher priced genuine cartridges. Remanufactured ink is much cheaper than the original brand ink. It's far more cost effective to refurbish a previously used cartridge than create a new OEM from scratch. Compatible ink is much cheaper than the original brand. Compatible suppliers don't have to worry about the additional costs that hinder OEMs like new printers or firmware, which lets them keep prices low.
                  Quality Original cartridges work extremely well and are covered under a warranty by the printer manufacturer High quality remanufactured ink will match the quality of the original, but not all remanufactured ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results. High quality compatible ink will match the quality of the original, but not all compatible ink is created equal. Make sure you buy from a reputable supplier in order to get the absolute best results.
                  What's the difference between ink and toner cartridges?
                  Ink Cartridges Toner Cartridges
                  Printer Type Work with inkjet printers Work with laser printers
                  Material Liquid ink Dry powder
                  How it works Inkjet printers use a series of nozzles that spray tiny drops of ink directly on the print suface Laser toner printers use static electricity and heat to bond dry toner powder to a page
                  Commonly used by Casual home users, small business and photographers Large businesses and schools
                  Number of Pages You Can Print A cartridge's page yield is the estimated number of pages you can print. Page yield is based on 5% page coverage. This means that the quoted page yield is based upon printed pages where only 5% of the page has been imprinted with ink. For example, a short memo has approximately 5% coverage. If you have a cartridge that has a yield of 500 pages, it can print 500 pages of that short memo. If you are printing letters, photos or graphics, your coverage will vary greatly and your page yield will drop significantly.
                  Cartridge Warranty and Shelf Life Most ink and toner cartridges include a warranty or "best by" date on their box. Remanufactured and compatible ink cartridges can last 12-18 months unopened, and toner cartridges can last up to 3 years.
                  Cartridge Care and Storage Only open a cartridge when you need it. Opened cartridges will eventually dry out, especially if the protective tape or clip has been removed. If you have an open ink cartridge around and would like to try and prevent it from drying out, place it nozzle side up in a plastic airtight tub. If your cartridge came with protective tape or a clip reapply both before storing. Place a damp cloth or paper towel in the tub, next to the cartridge and keep it stored in a cool, dark place.
