File Pockets & Jackets

File pockets and file jackets provide more security than regular file folders as they are sealed on three sides with easy access through the top of the file. They are the ideal solution for storing important documents such as contracts, reports, and other types of correspondence. Because they are sealed on three sides they are also ideal for storing oddly shaped and slick materials such as leaflets, pamphlets, photographs, and even discs. 

File Pockets and File Jacket in the Home and Work Office
For home use, folders with pre-printed lines on the front can include designated spaces to record summaries and project costs. Notating on the lines makes it simple to keep track of work, school, and home activities. The waterproof file pockets are a durable material and tear-resistant, so the folders withstand high-traffic usage. The units have secure bottoms that close on each side to ensure all contents remain safe inside the folder. Letter-sized and legal-sized file pockets and jackets are available to accommodate large and small tasks around the home.

Many file pockets and jackets are expandable, making them the ideal choice to ensure all documentation related to the same client or project in one place and most designs can either be placed on a shelf or desk or hung in a filing cabinet

Consider the Benefits of Color-Coded File Pockets and File Jackets
A bright file jacket helps keep paperwork organized, and a file pocket with a pop of color adds a simple aesthetic to workplace record cabinets. Bold colored folders are easy to spot when mixed with several manila folders, which makes it simple to find files to note changes or add materials, a benefit when searching through hundreds of files within a records cabinet or repository drawer. A double-ply thickness ensures each folder and label can handle wear and tear. An embossed print on the file pocket helps note where to center labels for precise application, which makes it easy to streamline a filing system.

How Much Paper Can a File Pocket Hold?
File pockets can hold from 50 to 500 sheets of paper, depending on the style. The units are typically made of either plastic or paper, and can hold loose sheets of paper, magazines, journals, and other types of lightweight items.

Are There Certain Types of File Jackets and File Pockets to Use?
It all depends on your needs. Hanging file pockets allow users to store large amounts of paperwork within each folder, and the files are easy to remove from the drawer and cabinet when needed. An accordion-style folder with an elastic cord closure allows for easy transport of documents from one place to the next. These provide plenty of space to store an extensive amount of documents, and the elastic closure ensures each unit remains closed to prevent paper from flying loose. A clear file jacket keeps dust away from documents.

Are There Benefits to Using an Elastic Cord Closure?
Yes. The smooth elastic closure fits over the clasp of the folder. A taut fastener ensures the documents remain safe and in place while inside the unit which is useful when you have to put several folders into bags and carry them. The sturdy closures help prevent the folders from opening and keeps loose papers from leaving the units. Protective fasteners also provide a level of privacy to documents.
