Almost Perfect. My only complaint about this folder is that, while I like the idea of the SafeSHIELD Coasted Fasteners, they are not attached to the file correctly and pull out far too easily. They SHOULD be attached through the back of the file as the old fasteners were. As is, they are NOT made for large, bulky files that get plenty of use. I work for a CPA firm and I KNOW large, bulky files - and have to repair these all the time. Just change how the fastners are attached to the files and these will be perfect.
Keeps Files Organized! I work in a law office and we use these daily! We're constantly ordering more to keep up with our inventory of new cases. These are sturdy and last a really long time! These make keeping files neat and organized a breeze! Letters and correspondence on the left and pleadings on the right! Couldn't get much simpler than that!
Very durable and Safety Coating is a lifesaver. I love the new safety coating on the Smead pressboards. They save me from many cuts and helps the folders slide into file cabinets much easiler since there is no metal prong backing holepunched on the outside. These pressboards are very durable. I am still reusing some from 20 years ago. I did buy more for the new safety coating.
Smead to the Rescue. There we were, adrift in a sea of inadequate folders looking for signs of something solid on which we could depend. Then we spotted the well groomed jib of the Smead Expanding Pressboard Fastening File Folder on the internet. We had been a victim of the online fly by night ne â€˜r do wells before so we proceeded with caution ordering just a few boxes, but when we received the chosen few...it was obvious there would be a new kid in filing town. "Man the filing cabinets and stoke the recycling fires!" We were going to replace our files tout de suite. Or, at least as fast as Purchasing could cut a check. This tale ends happily ever after, as will yours if you order the same.
Worth it to get the features! 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.
Durable, Reliable, Professional. 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!
Smead-Superior Performance & Durability. 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.
Love These Folders! 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 :-)
