I have used your expandable monthly folder for years. I have had two different jobs in the past ten years and I have used them in both jobs. LOVE THEM!! As a secretary for a school I pay bills. We are audited at the end of the school year and this product keeps each month separated wonderfully for my job. Once the audit is complete it fits wonderfully into a storage where that is all I have to file away and I'm done. Great product. The only thing that I would suggest is that it be offered in a little larger expandable size if possible. Some months have a lot of activity and when you put vouchers, receipts and everything collected in a month in the month sections sometimes it's pretty full. Not every month but just occasionally. That is the only thing that I could recommend improvement on. That isn't often. This product is GREAT!!!!

The first issue with this product is the packing. The item is shrink wrapped too tightly thus causing the file to bow. Second issue the file has a paper cover poorly glued to the front. It has bubbles in some places. The third thing is the label which is glued to a plastic strip. The problem with this is that the glue amount runs over and thus the label is glued to the file itself and thus there is no way to get the label and the plastic strip off without tearing the paper covered glued to the file. I don have one positive, the staggered alphabet tabs.

    Comments about Smead A-Z Simulated Leather Expanding File Letter - 8.50" x 11" - Red - 1 Each:

    Our company gets Audited every three years. During the audit the inspectors will ask to see random documents from each month in the past three years. We are required to keep paper copies as well as electronic files. The Smead Tuff monthly organizer makes it easy for our employees to provide the documents in a timely manner when the auditors inquire about them.

        This heavy duty expanding file is what we use in office for cataloging. I've tried others but this product is sturdy and is well constructed. No need to worry about the sections coming apart. Highly recommended

        The Great Expanding File

        By CindyLeach

        from Thornton, CO, USA

        Comments about Smead A-Z Simulated Leather Expanding File Letter - 8.50" x 11" - Red - 1 Each:

        The monthly 12 pocket expanding file is absolutely the best. I love to be organized, and I couldn't do it without these files. I use them at work and at home. I actually use them in combination with the 31 pocket daily expandable file. I put all my bills, flyers, birthday cards, and notes in the monthly files as I come across them. Then, each month, I take all the papers out the current month pocket and separate them in the daily folder . Each night, I pull out the next days papers, and I am ready to go.

        I use several of these products to stay organized as a school nurse. I used these to organized items used on a monthly basis. Even though most things are placed in the computer, I still have the papers on hand, simply go to the month needed - easy to assess.

        I have multiple projects going, with a mountain of paper, and Smead expanding files help me keep it all straight. I tote these around with me and they stand up to some abuse. Great value.

        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.
