These are great if you can print and use all 10 at once. If you just use a few to print at a time then the others tend to fall apart.

When it works it's great. But......

I do not print a complete sheet of tab inserts at one time. Usually one or two tabs at a time. Works very well for the first five tabs, but once there are only 5 remaining blanks, it gets jammed in the printer because it is too short to feed properly. Also when the remaing blanks sheet is that short, I must remove the feeder tray top in order to get it fully inserted. From time to time I have had some success with taping the short tab blanks sheet to a full piece of paper, but it often jams.

It would work fine if the blanks were on letter-sized stock with the tabs on the lower portion and with the top portion remaining blank thus assuring the the blanks sheet would always be sufficiently long to feed properly.

I will not purchase more blanks as long as they are on short sheets. I will just use heavier letter sized stock and cut them out by hand. It's faster than having to unjam and recycle my printer each time.

    Comments about Westcott Kleencut Hot Forged Adjustable Shears:

    I read other reviews that say they fall apart. I have not found that to be true. What I do is use double stick tape and tape all along the width of the top of the page of labels and stick it to the top of an 8 1/2" x 11" piece of paper (I use a thicker stock of paper than normal print paper). This way I can keep printing from the bottom of the page of labels all the way to the top and I never have a problem.

        Easy to use. Have used them for at least 10 years and wouldn't change to any other type. Great for printing beginning of the year file labels for business and personal files.

        Tab Inserts

        By

        Comments about Westcott Kleencut Hot Forged Adjustable Shears:

        I would recommend this item because it makes my job easier. Some days I print as many as 200 tabs and this product makes a difficult job simple. Before I had to type the tabs on a typewriter and it took so much time, now I select the format and just type on the computer. It is so simple to use that other people in my office now do their own tabs.

        Comments about Westcott Kleencut Hot Forged Adjustable Shears:

        This product is hard to use. It will not use the whole tab area for printing. It does not like the margins that the products is telling you to use. I got it to work but it is difficult to use. It could be a great product if it was easier to use.

        I love Avery 11137 tab inserts. They make my drawer of hanging file folders look neat and tidy, and my boss was excited that she could actually READ the text, because you can make it any font and any size.

        Need clean and easy to read tabs for your hanging file folders? I have been using these tabs for over 10 years! So easy to use, why would you want to use your messy handwriting. I only wish I could find them in my area. But Avery ships them out right away. Would literally cry if these were discontinued.

        There is nothing better to organize your hanging file folders than Avery's Tab Inserts 11137. I use these with Smead's Easy Slide Tabs to make re-organizing by whatever criteria easier.

        The Tab Inserts for Hanging File Folders (Avery 11136) is one of the best products that Avery makes. It takes what used to be a tedious job of making hanging file folder inserts and turns it into a quick, easy task.

        WorkSaver really saves work

        from Undisclosed

        Comments about Westcott Kleencut Hot Forged Adjustable Shears:

        These inserts are the best thing since sliced bread! It really does save me time. We still use the old hanging folders with clear tabs, and we reuse them almost indefinitely :-) So we need to change the tab inserts frequently. Typing these up and printing them off, then giving them to our volunteer so he can finish the task and do some filing...this isn't a chore anymore!

        I have been using these tabs ever since they came out years ago when nobody even carried them at office supply stores. They are professional and make all hanging file systems look very uniform and neat, with files that are extremely easy to locate.

        The Tab Inserts for Hanging File Folders was one of the Avery products I purchased ALL THE TIME!!! They're great for putting numerous information on - project number, project name, manager, etc. I liked them so much at the office I began purchasing them for my home office.

        WorkSaver Tabs are WORKSAVERS

        Comments about Westcott Kleencut Hot Forged Adjustable Shears:

        I've been using Avery products for over 30 years and I can attest to their top quality. These tabs are definitely named correctly, because they do really save us work. I remember back in the day we had to use the "typewriter" and this seems like lightning speed compared to then. I'm all about saving time and Avery seems to agree because they have come out with plenty of new products that help us keep our sanity at work! Way to go Avery!

        I love these. Doing inserts for hanging files is a bear. These make it so much easier and I can actually read my file tab. Writing was such a pain.
