I love organizing products so I was very happy when the women of Get Buttoned Up asked me to review some. When I first received the SMEAD office filing products in the mail to review I was thinking to myself what is there to say about file folders and manila folders that hasn’t already been said? Then I tried them and decided I will never buy another brand of folders again.
The website says: “Seven times stronger than the leading competitor’s hanging folder*, TUFF® Hanging Folders are the Gold Standard for hanging folders. The specially designed reinforced rods are 40% stronger to resist bending and paper tearing. The heavy-duty oversized tabs easily slide and secure into the position you choose. Replaceable white tab inserts included.”
My review: I believe the company when they say that these folders are seven times stronger. Not only were the actual folders thicker than normal but the tabs were made of a thick plastic. The white tab insert stayed in place better than other folders I’ve tried previously. I also love how the tab on top of the folder can be moved easily yet will not fall off of the folder.
The website says: “Get nearly double the labeling area of standard folders – so you can use larger text or more lines of description. Fits any vertical or lateral filing system.”
My review: I love that the tabs on these file folders are so large. I hate when I have to squeeze in a lot of words on one tiny tab and half the time end up writing so low that some of the words are hidden when the folder is closed.
