I use these jackets to store stuff for art projects, and they are super! They hold time sheets, contracts, photos, color swatches, notes, etc. They could even hold small artwork if I wanted.
I used to get them in 1/2 inch expansion but can't anymore. A flat jacket is sometimes not enough, and 1 inch is often too wide. I'm ordering these for the first time in several years and hope that the quality is as good as it was in the past; ie heavyweight and sturdy. I'd rather pay a little more for something that is sturdy since my jackets get a lot of use until the artwork is finished.
We are now using jackets for storing income tax documents for longterm storage. They work so much better than file folders for so many things!
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
