We recommend using Hanging Files with your file folders. Because the 1/3-cut hanging file is more expensive, we recommend you go ahead and purchase 3 or 4 boxes of inexpensive business green "1/5-cut" hanging files at your office supply store (sold in boxes of 25-ea.). Because our cardboard labels are over 3-inches long, YOU WILL ALSO NEED TO PURCHASE a few packs of 1/3-cut "CLEAR" vinyl tabs as described above.
You will need packages of 1/3-cut vinyl tabs (also called 3-1/2" vinyl tabs) shown here with our color-coded cardboard labels inserted. Vinyl tabs are available at office supply stores (25-tabs per pack) for about $4.25 per pack. These tabs will fit with any size hanging file (letter -or- legal size) made by any manufacturer.
You're almost done. Now we'll show you the 1/3-cut manila file folder. One third cut means 3 tabs positions across the top (left, middle, & right). This folder is available in "letter" or "legal" size, your choice. We recommend manila because you get full color benefits from the FileSolutions labels. Each FileSolutions kit includes sets of pre-printed adhesive labels (shown here) for use with the manila folder.
Folders are also available as an "envelope file" which means the sides have seams so that your small, loose items won't fall out. Ask for them at your office supply store.
You will also need the following supplies to use with your new FileSolutions filing system.
