Trusty Companions. I use these files every day at the law office I work at, we get them in blue. They are very sturdy and hold a lot of documents. It is very easy to add more to the files and to remove items. The only negative I can think of is that every once in a while we will get a file that is missing a part or has an extra part. (This only happens like 1 in every 200 files). Overall these files are the real deal!
SafeSHIELD makes all the difference! These folders are the best! My office uses 2 prong file folders for all of our files, and the coating on these fasteners makes a HUGE difference. Our files see a lot of wear-and-tear as they are frequently updated, and I often experience problems with the fasteners bending in the middle or cutting the papers (and sometimes cutting my fingers) as I repeatedly add and remove documents. These fasteners stay straighter and don't cut the paper or, more importantly, me! I also like that they expand at the bottom so I don't have to use multiple file folders for the same type of documents--it makes my files look much neater.
The File That Stands Strong Above The Rest. I only order this file folder for all of our business projects. The use of this folder allows our company to access the file on a day to day basis, taking papers in and out of the file fasteners without the fasteners breaking or becoming loose from the file itself. The file can be handled by a number of people without the file ever tearing or becoming weak. Now that's my kind of file folder!
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.

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.
