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 Colored File Folders:

      The orange manila folders are perfect for school use because black and orange are the school colors! When a student passes their Industry Certification, I print out their certificates and give to them in one of your orange folders. It is very impressive!

      It also makes it easy for the high schoolers to take home their certificate in their book bags.

            Comments about Smead 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.

              Comments about Smead Colored File Folders:

              Our school has used Smead products for years. Originally, we stuck to plain, manilla folders until our purchasing staff member bought the assorted colors boxes. It was like Christmas in August!
              I use the assorted colors to differentiate between groups in my classes as well as organizing various units/lessons by color. Have color choices makes it so much easier to find the folder in need when I open the filing cabinet. Recently, I came across the non-assorted box of purple folders and loved them! Thank you Smead!

                  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.
