Rated 5 out of 5 Great Product! Absolutely love these folders! Always come back to Smead for their products, and was happy to find colored file folders. The colors look great to leave out and help bring a little more color to a neutral colored office! August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Jewel Tones Rock! Love the file folders in "Jewel Tones"!! They are sturdy and hold up well after many uses. I LOVE that they come in more subtle colors as I was looking for something different than the plain primary colors and didn't want such bright tones. SMEAD has excellent prices to comparable file folders in other brands!! Thanks so much for a great prodcut!! August 1, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Good looking, easy I bought teal color - very easy to use, especially with an automatic label maker. July 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Love the colors I purchased this because it was the brightest set of file folders I could find. The quality is great but when I received it, some of the tabs were bent inside the box. July 27, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Better than Christmas! I love the choices of colors for file folders! Boring manila folders are not for me. These jewel tones are just different enough to make my files pop with color and easy to group together. Not too bright, not too boring - just right! :) July 26, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Organization I enjoy using Smead Products because it allows you to color code all departments. When I have some information on my desk in a blue folder I know its for the healthy homes department. When its red I know which department it corresponds with. Smead is the best because of the level of variety they offer. July 25, 2013

The folders are beautiful in color and I know I can rely of them to hold whatever I place inside. I know that my documents are safe and free of folds or tears in these Smead file folders! I would recommend to anyone looking to keep important documents, photographs or even family keepsakes! July 24, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Organization Smead file folders come in an array of colors, they are strong and provide consistant premium quality. I find them very helpful in organizing dfferent groups of expenses. I use red for medical, blue for dental, yellow for school, etc. Then I use colored labels blue for Bobby, Green for Greg and Red for me. the colored filed folders help me with quick filing and the colored label helps me locate at a glance the person's folder I am looking for. July 23, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Files on the market 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. July 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Color My World I love that your folders are available in my favorite colors! July 22, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Absolutely BEST Quality Don't be fooled by knock-off house brands! SMEAD is the LEADER for quality. Period. July 20, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Live in Color Great color helps files stand out from the rest! Strong enough to resist tears without being too think. July 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by almost perfect These folders are great for organizing your documents with proper identification. The only thing I'd change is having metal fasteners inside as an option to bind papers in the folders. July 17, 2013

LOVE THESE !!!! July 15, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by They're Yellow! I was assuming that these yellow folders would be a generic manila-folder beige color, and I really needed yellow to keep up with our office's filing system. I was so suprised and happy to open the box and see BRIGHT YELLOW!! Thanks, Smead, for a job well done. July 11, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Color coded organization These folders are heavy duty and stand up to a lot of use. I use multiple colors to organize the 3 different companies I manage. The material is heavy duty and do not tear or breakdown. July 11, 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Color & Organization When it's down to the basics of organizing contract files, durability, color, and function of Smead Folders lead the way. The importance of filing a document correctly, the first time, is critical to task management and records retrieval. Smead folders' design add the necessary cues to help you stay focused and at your professional best. Function over glamour: a winner each and every time. July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 Color so Bright This color is so bright and easy to pick out when there is a stack of folders. July 8, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Most Bang for your Buck I work at a company that has a ridiculous amount of files to keep track of for only 10 projects being worked on. Naturally, labeling things by file name isn't enough, you need visual aid and therefore we went with a color system of folders using Smead Brights Folders. It helps you differentiate different projects in a stack of files quickly by color. You start to get used to what colors to look for instead of digging through names and titles and reference numbers. Its great! The quality of the folders is also top notch. It seems like they can take a beating in any fast paced office environment. Don't work too fast though, you might give yourself a paper cut. Kidding. :) Great product, definitely would get more when needed. July 5, 2013
