Color: Assorted Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These folders seem reasonably sturdy and look like they'll hold up. Our file folders are used for years, sometimes decades, and other brands have fallen apart when the adhesive under the fold breaks down. Won't know for years if these will pass that test, but they seem solid enough. My only complaint, very minor, is that the tabs have pointed-corner edges, which might get ragged with multiple handlings. I've always prfereed rounded-corner tab edges.

Color: Assorted Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
There are 50 folders in four colors; red, blue, green and yellow.
Aside from using these to organize my paperwork and documents for tax time I am also using these to organize my sheet music. The folders are firm and the fasteners are sturdy. The folders also fit in a hanging folder in my filing cabinet and my portable file storage box. I also like these folders because they have fasteners on both sides of the folder
allowing me to further separate my paperwork. If you are looking to organize any paperwork then I recommend these folders to make it much simpler.

The quality of these folders is much nicer than those available for purchase locally. Service was great as usual and all was delivered on time. I highly recommend these Smead folders.

Color: Assorted Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I like to keep my bills nice and organized and use fasteners to do this with. Normally I buy plain file folders, the fasteners and tape them in to make sure they don't fall out. With this product I don't have to do that anymore. The nice thing about it is that I can either use one folder for two bills (electric company and phone bill) or simply have more space for my bills.

The construction of the folder is very sturdy so these guys aren't going to begin tearing on you. The tabs are reinforced and the fasteners are in there nice and tight. Yes, you can save some money doing it the way I've done it in the past but you save yourself the headache and time by purchasing these.

Well worth the money!

Color: Assorted Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
These folders have been so helpful in getting our paperwork at home straight. Tax forms, insurance statements, health records, etc. all are so much easier to handle when well organized. The folders fit easily into file cabinets and even some home safes. The two pronged metal holder at the top of each folder is well secured, which is something you won't find in many brands. Why bother taking the time to organize and punch holes in all your paperwork if the prongs break or tear out of the folder? Cheaper versions of this product can leave you with an even bigger mess than when you started.

The stock material the folders are made out of is nice and heavy. If you need to constantly access or transport a file, it's nice to not have to worry about immediate signs of wear and tear. This also makes these folders perfect for business travelers or medical offices. The tabs are large, allowing for labels or other stickers. The edges are smoothed which helps prevent catching on other folders or papers when filing and also paper cuts. I happened to spill water on one folder, and thankfully since the stock was so thick I had enough time to save the papers inside. After drying, the folder was still useable (though it had water spots) with no real warping or pilling of the material.

It might seem weird to get excited about an office product, but if you have to deal with them day in and day out, you really begin to appreciate the little touches that separate quality from cheapness. I like that these folders are made for long term duty and can handle an inch of paperwork instead of falling apart after a couple of uses. If you don't want to be refilling the same paperwork over and over again because the folder wore out, I truly recommend these. Save yourself some work!

These color files can be filed on their own or placed inside a hanging file (or other file types)

They also have a metal ringer to hold papers flat if needed.
Also the methods can be as vast as your imagination (or filing needs)

For my work, I have "moving" papers. I use Red files for anything that is waiting for papers to be faxed, signed or mailed to me. Also "red" if need to be ready to grab at any second, for any reason. And red also if contents has to be dealt with in some way by a certain date. My red files are kept in eye shot and never filed away.

Green means it is ready for use or presentation. It is free to go with me to meetings. But still active.

Blue means the contents are complete. Ready to be filed for the short or long term.

For my line of work, this method is a must. And gives you one example of many methods that could be used for your system.

Color: Assorted Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Organizational overkill? I've been resisiting the impulse for awhile to invest in some of these folders. I've seen them used in legal offices and they do what they were invented for - keeping papers organized and in order within individual files. Kind of like a computer file folder tree - although actually paper did come first, I hear...

I'm not ready to go entirely paperless at home so yes, these are turning out to be pretty useful. They feel just a bit more substantial than your standard beigy-yellow file folder, being reinforced at the long edge all the way down the side that has the labeling tab. The choice of !NEON! colors will be either distracting or useful, depending on your organizational needs.

I'm not going to invest in a dedicated two hole punch, as I have several adjustable three-holes. For light/home use, or for cheapos like me, the trick with the 3 holes (which tend not to have pre-set marks for 2 hole use) is to set the pegs on your punch a bit off center. Your mileage may vary depending on your punch, but I set my left side peg out to the 2 5/8" mark (which is actually closer to 2 6/8" with paper flush left), the center peg 2 7/8" to the right of that, and the pin that won't be used goes all the way to the right. Thus, pages punched are a bit offset, such that if bound on the right side of the folder, they won't as easily get "caught" or bent on the left side when the folder is shut. Of course, this handy flavor of Smead Fastener Folders has a right side AND a left side set of prongs, so if I'm punching a sheet for insertion of the left side of the folder, I punch with the paper turned on its back side, so it will (back on its face) be offset just a bit again away from the center.
