The are pretty pricey but they are worth the money. They last much longer than the other ones we were using. We were having to replace the other ones but we have not had to replace any of these files yet!
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.
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.
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.
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 :-)
