Want to know more about File Tabs & Inserts

Different lengths of folder tabs 

Manila, kraft, and pressboard file folders have different tab lengths and locations along the tops of the folders to help organize documents in a filing system. There are seven tab locations along the width of file folders. The most common ones are straight and 1/3 cut. Folders with straight cut tabs have one long tab that runs the entire width of the folder. This allows them to fit multiple labels that you attach separately. The straight cut is also useful for files with long headings. Folders with 1/3 cut tabs have the tab either to the right or left of center or centered. Another option is undercut file tabs, where part of the front panel is lower than the tab area. This allows users to easily see the file labels on every file in a stack. 

File tab features

Plastic file tabs use blank, white inserts that are excellent for reusing folders rather than buying new files and tabs for new accounts, clients, or classes. Consider using self-adhesive tabs. These aren't reusable themselves, but you can place new tabs over the old ones to recycle these folders, turning them into renewed files. People can handwrite on inserts and sticker tabs for hanging files or print text on them using laser, inkjet, or label printers. If they choose to use printers, they should verify that the printer, ink, and labels are compatible. When storing folders, consider keeping them in file storage boxes to protect them from dust and dirt. For more color in your storage system use shaded tab dividers within each file folder for easier identification of specific documents, or use colored files against the white tabs. The vivid background of colored file folders helps make the file tabs easier to read.
