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 :-)
Great file folder,not great packaging. these are by far the best file folder, particularly for legal work. Durable and sturdy. My only complaint - the packaging. You get left, center, and right tabs for labeling but they are grouped that way in the box so you end up using all of one kind. They should be boxed left, center, right (or vice versa). This would make them easier to see in a file with multiple folders.
Best Fastener File Folder ever! As far the best file folder I use for my work. They don't bend, they protect documents very well, they look professional. That's something I want to use. The only thing I don't like is that once labeled, it's really hard to remove the label without leaving mark on the folder. This is the main problem for all filing folders though.

Smead is now a woman-owned company well-known for its high quality, environmentally responsible products and innovative organizational systems. For over a half-century, women have guided Smead along an incredible path of success in a traditionally male-dominated manufacturing industry. Pioneering women's entrance into the boardroom, the mother-daughter team of Ebba Hoffman and Sharon Avent have helped blaze a trail for future women-business owners with their high ideals, achieving unparalleled growth, success and environmental stewardship. Under their direction, Smead has become a global industry leader.
In 1955, Ebba Hoffman embarked on a journey which transformed Smead from a relatively small family-owned business into an industry leader. In an era when a woman running a business was a rarity, she accomplished amazing feats by creating a foundation of high ideals within the company and reaching out to the community. Sharon Avent has continued this legacy by leading Smead into the international arena, navigating significant growth and extending the company's philanthropic vision even further. The mother-daughter legacy created during the last 50+ years has earned Smead a unique place in history.
