Pockets Options that Make 9×12 Folders Functional for Your Company

 

Perhaps your grade-school experience with 9×12 folders makes you skeptical about their use in the grown-up, modern world of business. Well, your single-subject, two-pocket versions available in an assortment of colors or cartoon designs can also be created with refined, sophistication for any business need. Aside from the actual design and text on the cover, the sheer number of options for organizational pockets alone can set your business 9x12s clearly apart from your 2nd grade English folder.

Below are the main categories of decisions for pocket options.

Quantity
The most obvious choice you’ll make is whether to use one pocket or two. Generally speaking, most companies prefer two pockets. Not even necessarily to stuff more printed materials in the folder, but rather to make sure that the information contained is easily accessible without having to rifle through a stack of other documents.

Height of the pocket
The next most obvious question to answer is how tall you want to make your pockets. Common sizes are from three to four inches tall. This gives a good amount of support for items being stored and also leaves enough space for someone to scan the top sheets in each pocket.

Glue tabs
These are the little flaps at adhere your pocket flap to the main piece. Most folders will come with glue tabs because this ensures that items will not accidentally fall sideways out of the pockets.
Sometimes pockets are designed without using glue tabs when there isn’t much information to be distributed. This type of folder gives the recipient an experience like that of opening a present.

Gussets and spines
For the heavy duty pocket folders that are home to thick packets or handbooks, gussets and spines are added so that the depth of the pocket can be extended.

Business card holders
Most companies prefer to include business cards instead of printing contact details on the folder itself. This means no reprinting after changes in personnel or office location.

There are a handful of cuts that can be made to hold a business card or two, normally on the pocket flaps. First are two or four diagonal slits to hold the corners. Second are little semi-circle or other similar shaped tabs to hold the edges of a business card in place. These shapes can also be used to hold the corners of the card.
 

Pocket Folders: The trusted tool of employees at modern companies

It’s not surprising that simple pocket folders are the most overlooked yet useful tools in the technological age of business. But there are many uses for these, such as:

1. Holding documents. The simplest task is to hold documents for reference or future use. In these instances, it is important to make sure that the pockets are strong and/or deep enough to hold the number of pages you want to keep together. Also, check to make sure that the paper stock itself is thick enough so that normal wear and tear doesn’t quickly damage it.

2. Displaying sales brochures. This can arguably be one of the most interesting uses for pocket folders. When given some room to be creative, a team can also fashion a unique design to show off the company brand.  Thoughtful planning will help craft the perfect sales package for your team to win customers and close deals.

3. Organizing training materials. Most seminars leave employees with at least a small stack of handouts, booklets, notes, or other references. Instead of forcing attendees to find a place to store these pages, these can be passed out to everyone so that these documents can be neatly stored for easy reference after the training.

4. Handing out new employee packets.  Most new employees get inundated with forms and handbooks and pamphlets to read as they get up to speed about their new employer. It is easy for the HR representative or supervisor who is responsible for passing along this information to forget a sheet or two as they get busy. Instead of scrambling to gather all necessary documents, a packet can be put together well in advance to pass out when new employees are hired. New employees, then, can also keep relevant items in the folder with them to read at their leisure.

With so many uses, it becomes easy to see why these rudimentary devices are still on the desks of employees at all levels of many organizations. Pocket folders are smart for all kinds of businesses.
