View Full Version : Where to buy folders?

Hi there. I am based in New Zealand, and am having a really hard job trying to buy plain manila folders that have tabs (like the ones shown in David's General Reference Filing white paper). Seriously, I have been to every major kiwi stationery shop. It's driving me nuts.
Are any of you able to point me to a website that sells manila folders like David recommends? Obivously it needs to have international shipping options.

I'm surprised that your having problems. DA's recommended folders are plain folders all with the tab in the same location (take your choose as to position, I use 1st) ... DA would use "American" letter size and you need A4 size.
As to a international supplier I don't have one and would suggest the cost + plus shipping + duties would be probative. If you cannot find a supplier of single tab files, either see if you can special order or buy the 3 tab version and pass on the 2 tabs that you don't need. You may also wish to look at a single color rather than the beige that DA recommends, again pass on those files that you don't use ...

I just googled New Zealand office supplies. Here is one supplier and of course there are others. And I may have selected the wrong region, "Upper North Island", but they had some other choices available.

Thank you so much. I have been into several of the Office Max stores, but they couldn't help me, so I disregarded their website. It's a bit hard to tell if these folders have the tabs I'm after (the images are very small), but I've ordered a bunch, so fingers crossed!
