September 29, 2006, Newsletter Issue #143: File Folder Tab Positions

Tip of the Week

File folders are sold as either third cut (3 tab positions) or fifth cut (5 tab positions). The most common way of putting them in a file drawer is to stagger them in the left, middle, and right positions. However for a more uniform look try using only the middle tab position folders for file drawers that pull straight out. For lateral files try using only first tab position folders for drawers that pull out to the left and only third or fifth tab position for drawers that pull out to the right.
