We buy the 100 count box of these all the times (not just yellow but blue, green, purple, manila, etc) We tried the reinforced tabs but the tabs are short and get lost in the file cabinets. The regular ones and taller but they do have a tendency to bend some if you are not careful. Out of all the folders we have used though these are still the best and the most affordable for the amount you get in the box.

      The orange manila folders are perfect for school use because black and orange are the school colors! When a student passes their Industry Certification, I print out their certificates and give to them in one of your orange folders. It is very impressive!

      It also makes it easy for the high schoolers to take home their certificate in their book bags.

            Our school has used Smead products for years. Originally, we stuck to plain, manilla folders until our purchasing staff member bought the assorted colors boxes. It was like Christmas in August!
            I use the assorted colors to differentiate between groups in my classes as well as organizing various units/lessons by color. Have color choices makes it so much easier to find the folder in need when I open the filing cabinet. Recently, I came across the non-assorted box of purple folders and loved them! Thank you Smead!

              I use the Smead color folders to help organize my work. Could not survive without the different color folders. I use the bright yellow folders to send home with my clients with my business card attached. The clients can always spot the bright yellow folder and my business card which has generated a remarkable amount of return business and referrals.

                      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.

                      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.
