We buy the 100 count box of these all the times (not just yellow but blue, green, purple, manila, etc) We tried the reinforced tabs but the tabs are short and get lost in the file cabinets. The regular ones and taller but they do have a tendency to bend some if you are not careful. Out of all the folders we have used though these are still the best and the most affordable for the amount you get in the box.

      Comments about Smead Red Colored File Folders:

      I purchased these folders for personal/home filing. I was really impressed with the five bright assorted colors, as well as their heavy duty quality. It would have been helpful if there had been self-adhesive pre-cut labels included with the box, but that certainly was NOT a deal-breaker for the value of the box of 100.

            I use the Smead color folders to help organize my work. Could not survive without the different color folders. I use the bright yellow folders to send home with my clients with my business card attached. The clients can always spot the bright yellow folder and my business card which has generated a remarkable amount of return business and referrals.

                                  First of all, for an office company, knowing whether I am a car camper or an avid adventurer seems strange.
                                  Secondly, I ordered 3 tab file folders. Out of a hundred folders, one would expect 34 middle folders, 33 left folders and 33 right folders or some variation on that theme. Instead, I got 43 Left, 31 right and 26 Middle. Since I make the same set of folders for all my clients at one time, I expect to be able to have 100 folders in tab order: left, middle, right.
                                  Just wondering what the thought process was behind this situation.

                                          my previous office manager always bought an "off brand" of folders.... Now my files look a mess. These nicer, much better quality files will improve my system greatly!

                                              I don't understand how the question they are asking pertain to file folders such as my gear style and if I use these for car camping, climbing, mountaineering or at the beach, but for filing they are great. They are nice and heavy duty and a really pretty shade of purple.

                                              The 1/3 cut letter size file folders are great for a multitude of projects. I find the 1/3 cut so much easier to label than the 1/5 cut. I also love the vibrant yellow - takes some of drudgery out of filing.

                                              Everyone here at our agency really like the color file folders. Colors are radiant and the quality of the folders is exceptional.

                                              I couldn't keep my workspace organized at home or on the job without Smead File Folders. The variety of colors available help me to color code different categories or sections. Tab cuts also allow you to find files easily...makes it difficult for files to hide. It would be spectacular if Smead could produce files in a variety of additional unique colors.
