The words are too limiting to express the true joy of the 1/3 cut tab folders manufactured by SMEAD®. The genius left-middle-right tab options render the arduous task of file hunting virtually effortless.
The SMEAD® company does not skimp on quality, settling for no less than 11 point card stock as opposed to the 9.5 point stock other companies have. I use these folders everyday for many reasons and they never disappoint. Love Love Love that they are recycled and made in the USA.

We use them for client files as well as office/business files. We are short on space for more file cabinets so things are a bit tight. When files get tight , they are too flimsy. And file cuts are painful.

I use these several times a day to contain customer orders. They are perfect for keeping everything contained and orderly, the only downside is when there are more documents than usual in an order I need to use two folders.

    Comments about Smead Manila File Folder - Legal - 8.50" x 14" - 1/3 Tab Cut on Left - Manila - 100 / Box:

    This worked perfectly as we shifted our simple colored filing system with client names at the top, to the medical labeling system. While there are more steps to prepare a file, the efficiency, effectiveness and containment of a client's paper file has been a great change! The only thing we wished it had was a laminate strip where the labeling goes, so that when files are purged to storage, the file can be easily reused. (We currently line it with a strip of tape, but it is time consuming)

              I am a file folder queen. I keep files of personal and business information, reports and even travel itineraries. I like the 1/3 cut file folders. The length of the tab gives me enough space to write the contents of the folder. Some like colors, but I am just as pleased to be using the manila colored folers.

              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.
