Pros:colorful, durable

Cons:colorful

The Bottom Line: These folders in various colors helped me organize my office and have held up well for three years.


When we remolded the office to my liking we bought new furniture. We purchased an oak desk that has one large drawer to hold legal size file folders. We also purchased the matching oak two drawer file cabinet that holds legal size hanging file folders as well. Each drawer can accommodate two rows of these folders and we decided to purchase the Smead Colored Hanging File Folders so we could organize things by category and be able to tell them apart better.


We purchased six boxes of Smead Colored Hanging File Folders at a cost of $12.00 a box from our local office supply store. We purchased them in boxes of twenty five file folders and I choose to buy two boxes of each of these colors; yellow, blue and green. Each one of the boxes contained the file folders as well as the other items necessary to use them immediately.


There was a little plastic bag holding twenty five tabs colored the same as the file folders. These tabs can be placed anywhere along the tops of the file folders and they have paper labels that you can write on. These paper labels are two inches in length and stand one inch tall before they are folded over. They must be folded over to fit into the tab properly because the tab is only half inch tall where the label is inserted. Each one of these paper labels can be removed and inserted into the tabs quite easily. The bottoms of the tabs are 2 3/4 inches long and have what look like little hooks on each end to catch onto the file folder when in place to prevent them from coming off.


The box of Smead Colored Hanging File Folders also contained the metal brackets to place inside the drawer to hold up the folders but since our drawers came with them already built in we did not need to use them. These brackets are made of what appears to be stainless steel and the assembly for them is very simple.


The Smead Colored Hanging File Folders are 11 3/4 inches long and stand about 9 1/4 inches long with nothing in them. The bottom of each of the folders is scored a total of eight times so that the folder can expand to two inches across. This of course would alter the height of the folder. At the tops of each folder there is a fold approximately one inch long that creates a pocket along the entire top inside edge. This is where the metal bracket that holds up the file folder is placed. There are 11 openings along the top of each file folder so that the tabs can be inserted wherever you wan them to be. Both sides on the top edge of the file folder are identical. These folders are made of heavyweight stock paper and the colors are okay but not the greatest. The yellow is very bright, the blue is very light and the olive green seems somewhat out of scale compared to the other two bright shades.


We used the various colors of Smead Hanging File Folders to categorize the paperwork we accumulate daily. The blue ones are used for all of our household paperwork. The yellow folders hold all of the family and/or pet paperwork while the green hold all of the other miscellaneous paperwork. We have found them to be very durable. I would highly recommend these file folders to anyone who wants to add some color to their office or just organize their paperwork the way I did.


Thanks for reading and rating.
