This product works fine and I like the design but I wish it was about a half inch wider. It is a headache to get the papers in the pocket.

Do not purchase this product if you are looking for a good, long lasting durable binder. I purchased this product and after a few days the rings inside stopped working and came out of their groove. There is no way to use this binder any more if the rings do not function. I am very disappointed as I really like the other features of this binder, and trusted that MEAD produced good quality products. Do not waste your money until they make it better!!

    Comments about MeadWestvaco First Gear Zipper Binder Letter - 8.50" x - Assorted:

    We liked the colors to choose from and we liked the pockets inside the folder but this folder was not a good purchase. After 6 days of school the zipper is ripping off. The binder didn't even have a lot in it. I am disappointed because the school made the zipper binder as a "must have" and it is already falling apart. Do not waste your money. It is not a reliable binder.

        Comments about MeadWestvaco First Gear Zipper Binder Letter - 8.50" x - Assorted:

        I specifically bought this binder to organize my clipped coupons AND to hold my full inserts. I absolutely LOVE it. The soft material allows me to add several months worth of full inserts, a place to add and store my clipped coupons using 20 coupons sleeves, and 1 notebook. Having the 2 zipped pockets allows me to carry money, scissors, pens, paper, paper clips. I love the design shown in the pic but unfortunately i didn't get that one, i received one with skulls, guitars, and other designs on it, however i am very please with it. I was so excited to purchase this that BEFORE i made my purchase, i did show this to a friends of mine and she was so thrilled that she also made a purchase the same day and absolutely love hers as well. Super Happpy with my purchase.

        Love it, but if you don't take care of the binder it will eventually break. However this is a great organization tool that I love and I handle it well. Would recommend for mainly school use.

                  Bought this for my 16 year old daughter. She was excited about being able to customize it. Made little difference when we discovered that folders will not fit inside. I don't understand the point of a binder that you cannot put folders in. This product is useless.

                  Cartridge Comparison Guide
                  • Cartridge Types
                  • Ink & Toner Basics
                  • Number of Pages & Shelf Life
                  Cartridge Type
                  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.
