What is a manila folder?
Manila folders are a popular filing tool, helping households and offices across the country keep documents organized. They draw their name from the Manila hemp fibers used to produce them, which originated in the Philippines. This material also gives them their distinctive khaki shade, familiar to office workers everywhere.
Manila folders typically include a small tab where a label can be written to identify the folder’s contents. This tab can be placed toward either the end of the folder or squarely in the middle, depending on the folder’s design.
Which type of manila file folders do I need?
This page offers many kinds of manila file folders, accommodating a range of business needs. For example, some include metal fasteners, which can help store documents that are hole-punched at the top. Others are reinforced, with heavier stock to withstand the wear and tear of repeated use.
Shoppers should also be mindful of size: While standard manila folders fit letter-size paper (8.5 by 11 inches), legal-size folders are available to fit longer documents. Customers should also note the position of the tab in the left, right, or center position. For those who keep multiple manila folders in a drawer, having several tab positions can make finding a particular folder easier.
