      we use these classification folders along with bottom tab inserts to make for compact, economical, filing of multiple documents for each case or project. everything is neatly organized into the one folder so anyone in the office can just grab it and go.

          As far the best file folder I use for my work. They don't bend, they protect documents very well, they look professional. That's something I want to use. The only thing I don't like is that once labeled, it's really hard to remove the label without leaving mark on the folder. This is the main problem for all filing folders though.

            these are by far the best file folder, particularly for legal work. Durable and sturdy. My only complaint - the packaging. You get left, center, and right tabs for labeling but they are grouped that way in the box so you end up using all of one kind. They should be boxed left, center, right (or vice versa). This would make them easier to see in a file with multiple folders.

            Love These Folders!

            By "Dory Syndrome"

            from Macon, GA

            Comments about Smead Pressboard Fastener Folder - 8.50" x 11" - 2" Expansion - Gray:

            We use these file folders for all of our patient files. Very "tough"...can pull files by tabs and they don't tear, if they slide off the desk the chart doesn't fall apart, etc. Sometimes the spine tape will loosen but nothing that good packing tape won't fix. Wish they were the same price as top tab folders, but at least the price isn't ridiculously higher :-)

            SMEAD folders are in constant use at my company, being pulled in and out of filing cabinets, and having documents added to the folders. These folders have outstanding durability and are able to withstand vigorous use year after year. With the coated metal fasteners I never have to worry about cuts.

                  I am a lawyer. It is important for me to keep documents for years. These file folders are awesome! They are a nice pastel color, which is nice when differentiating from the vanilla manilla folders. They are strong and durable! I love them. I don't use anything else. Worth the quality. Don't be afraid... try them!

                    We use these folders for our grant project that mandates us to keep extensive files on students in the grant programs. I specifically bought the folders with the coated prongs because I remember cutting my fingers when using this type of folder years ago, so I think it's a great feature. I use removable name labels which come off these folders easily so we can reuse them when students drop out of a program. I also like that both sides of the folder have prongs so we can sort out the records we place in the file.

                    • 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.

                    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.
