Smead Product Reviews

I was lucky to be able to recently sample three new products from Smead - a leader in office supplies. The three products are:
Smead Super Tab Folders
Smead Viewables Color-Coded Labeling System
Smead New Stadium File Organizer

Super Tab Folders - the best feature of this product is the larger label area - great for larger titles on file labels - easier to read and easier to find the correct file. I also loved the new subtle pastel colors - light blue, lavendar, mint green, coral and light pink. The file size is standard letter size and the folders come in 1/3 cut tabs.

The Super Tab Folders are available at Office Depot and Staples.

Viewables Starter Kit - this kit includes 160 adhesive labels and the 4.0 Viewables Software which prints on two sides of the label which measures 3 7/16" x 1 1/4". The labels are inkjet and laser printer compatible. The kit does not include file folders. I was unable to run the software as I have a Mac and the software requires a PC/Microsoft format. The labels are compatible with the above-mentioned Super Tab Folders as well as standard file folders.

The Viewables Starter Kit is available for purchase at Office Depot and Staples.

New Stadium File Organizer - this is my favorite of the three products I sampled. I love 12-pocket organizers for organizing my yearly receipts, bank statements, credit card bills and anything else needed for compiling my yearly tax information. I have tried other gusseted organizers but what I liked about the Stadium File Organizer is that you don't have to remove a cover to place your receipts inside. This makes it easier to file receipts on a daily or weekly basis rather than waiting to file at a later time. It's also so much more attractive than the old rust colored cardboard stand up guesseted file organizers. I will definitely be using this product.

The Stadium File Organizer is available at Office Depot, and Franklin Covey.

You can follow Smead on Twitter at SmeadOrganomics or on Facebook at Smead Organomics.

Finally, I should mention that I am being compensated for this review but would gladly have purchased any of these products on my own without any compensation.
