I had and have great success with all Avery products in the past & present with the exception of this box of 1500 blue file folder labels. the adhesive does not hold up (stick) for more than 30 minuets and then it starts to peel off. I can understand the labels falling off the folders after 3 years in non-climate controlled record retention, but these have never left my office. I have not had this problem with the plain white labels just this one box of blue ones.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
We use these to label our medical records, 1000s of medical records. THey are ok for it, but sometimes older people have a hard time reading the names if they are misaligned in the printer and print on the colored lines.
