Color-coded subject headings, in up to 14 different colors, are viewable from both front and back of folder. Each label measures 3-1/2" wide x 1-1/4" high.

I implemented a file overhaul in 2008, and these are still the only files I can find reliably, and the tabs are in great shape. When I decided it was time to start over, I was dismayed to find no supplies at my local store, nor support for my Mac from Smead. I like this system well enough that I will borrow a Windows PC in order to use it.

The ink from my laserjet completely smears with almost every print on their refill sets. The plastic used to cover the labels are extremely difficult to align and you cannot make a mistake or you will have bubbles or smeared ink on the few that actually print well. This product is way to expensive for so much waste. If they could use better quality labels and find a way to let the user guide how the clear label adheres then this would be a great product. When the ink is not smeared and you manage to carefully get the clear coating on correctly, they are wonderful labels to use. It's just that you get maybe 2 labels.

      The online program to create the labels was easy to use, however, putting the labels on the 3D tabs took some practice. After I caught the hang of it it was pretty quick. Plan on spend some time if you have alot of files

          I absolutely love this organizing system. But we use Mac computers at home and there is no software to use with it. You need to get on the stick and provide a software for the rest of us.

              This really does organize a staff of non-office (warehouse) personnel for easy access. I also utilize sub-folders with the same color / file name in lower corner ... should anyone choose to file it themselves. Quite unlikely but just maybe!

                  My files have never looked better and completely organized. I had no problem with the software and it helped me establish my colors. Best part is I used a certain color file jacket for each office. Now when a file is left out, we know just what office it goes in.

                  • 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.
