The File Folder Gets Super

By Guest Author On August 30, 2011 Under Personal Development

The file folder first appeared in the mid-19th century and of all the office supplies is considered to be one of the most basic   It’s right up there with paper, pens and pencils.  As we supposedly evolve into a paperless society, the file folder’s turgid place in the office products pecking order has not been weakened.  In fact, I would even suggest that it has increased as e-mails are printed and filed away as well as protected electronically.  

No doubt you want to read all about the file folder right?   Where is it made? How is it made?  What is it’s history?  Sure you do. Who wouldn’t?  Just know that SMEAD Manufacturing home based in Minnesota and starting out with 6 employees manufactured the bandless file in 1906.  Today SMEAD is still the industry leader in this essential category but only now, the product offering is of course extensive.  They finally recognized after over 100 years of producing the standard file folder that an improvement was possible.  Having small tabs simply made the standard file folder inefficient over time.   . So in their infinite wisdom, SMEAD Manufacturing retooled a significant part of their production line to design and generate what we now know as the SuperTab.  The SuperTab over sized tab folder is a real game changer in that with one simple tweak to an ageless product, the user instantly reaps the benefits while still satisfying his/her demand for discount office supplies.  This one on the face of it obvious adjustment has made an old standard much more efficient and serves as an indication that little changes can yield huge results.   The SuperTab file folder comes in a variety of colors and sizes and soon it too will be come an office product standard  necessity.
