Folders are an important part of organization and Smead Classification Folders make organization easier with their multiple dividers and sections. With two dividers, each folder has a total of three sections for storage and six sections to attach paper. Fasteners exist at the top of each section, on each side, and they work by punching the pointed metal tip through sheets of paper and then folding the metal fasteners back. They can come in very handy for those who desire a means to separate notes into sections.

Another quality I like with these Smead folders is the reinforced spine. Some folders gradually break apart in this area, but these folders have reinforcement to extend their useful life. The reinforcement isn't anything extreme. It isn't made of metal or anything like that, but it is still more than what you will find with most folders and it is just enough to keep the folders from breaking down. I also like the fact that the reinforced spine has an accordion- style base. This is nice because it means the folders will expand a little bit to accommodate more paper. Additional expansion would be nice, but these folders still earn points for offering this feature.

Labeling is an important part of organization and these folders do offer a tab for attaching a label or writing in something as a label, both on the main folder and on each insert. These tabs could be improved, however, if they were a little taller. They offer a good deal of width, but they are very limited in height so there is little space on which to write a comment or attach a label. I have found that an added extender tab is necessary in order to have enough space to create a label.

I like to stay organized and these Smead folders are good at their intended purpose. Whether you are a student, teacher, businessperson, or just someone who has things to organize and needs multiple separation sections, these Smead folders can make your life much more orderly.

The Pros:
1. The fasteners are durable (must bend them beyond flat during re-fastening, or they may get caught on the fastener facing directly opposite of them)
2. The covers, individual dividers, and spine are also durable and it took some work in order to get one to rip. I don't see them ripping for the casual-to-medium user and should hold up to heavy filing for a while, provided the user isn't careless with them.
3. The 2-inch expansion (via accordian-like binding) allows the folders to carry a fair amount of paperwork without having to add an additional folder for the overflow (unless you require more than 6 separate categories to be filed within each folder)
4. Indispensable for medical or legal offices. Everyone I've worked at was littered with these folders, so, a must have for those professions/personal uses, which file material in a similar manner.

The Cons
1. Somewhat expensive, for what you get. If you think you may end up using more than one folder for a particular subject/topic, you may be better off purchasing an individual ring binder that would allow as many individual dividers as you wanted to be imported into the folder and would do it in a "cleaner" way.
2. It irked me a little to have to be sure and bend the fasteners down beyond flat in order to keep them from snagging on each other. I'm pretty sensitive to chalkboard-scratch-type noises , so the split-second the noise lasts while opening the folder pretty much forced me into making sure the fasters where bent all the way down and secure. I got the hang of it after a few dozen filings. A simple divider in between these would prevent that, although it would also add a slight bit of bulk, as well as an additional cost.

The colors are great, so that you can often grab a file without reading. I've got lots of three ring binders but they often take up too much space. I recently used one for a trip, organized by reservation/boarding passes, car reservations/maps, hotels, schedules and agendas, & meeting materials.

I'm not sure how much better it was, because I missed having a couple of sleeves, but it sure was less bulky. Also handy for taxes and many other purposes. Very Expaaaaaaaaaandable.

I really liked these expandable folders. I have always used loose manila folders to organize inside larger folders, but that becomes bulky fast. These dividers make it easy to have one folder for several subjects in a compact package. Way I used mine included having a folder for my car papers and using the dividers to separate insurance papers from maintenance papers.

I am a long-time user of Smead's partition/classification folders. My experience is that they not only hold up well to daily use, they really hold a lot of paper (2" per the item description).

I initially started using these folders when doing court/trial work. I'd use the folders to keep same case witness information in the same place. The folders made it very easy to flip through & find what I wanted during court appearances and when writing/answering pleadings.

I also use the folders to keep credit card statements in one file (ie, business credit card, personal credit card, gas credit card, etc.). The file w/in a file feature allows me to put all of these into a final annual folder to file away as tax back-up.

I have never had a cover split nor a tyvek-reinforced spine tear open. The interior tabs also stay in place even when loaded down with paper. For lighter paper use, I just fold the fasteners out to keep my papers in place. For thicker files, I'd use the metal piece that locks in the fasteners Officemate Prong Paper Fastener, Compressors. 2.75 inch Base, Box of 100 (99855).

These folders also come in legal size. Happy Filing!
