File Folders Full, Half & Third Cut
If your documents need to be permanently filed and retained they require archival quality file folders.
Archival Methods file folders are made of certified and tested 10-point acid- and lignin-free archival card stock to meet stringent long-term archival storage requirements and specifications. Each folder is bottom-scored to easily fold to your desired capacity - up to ¾' - and will hold up to 50 documents (depending on material and condition). Folders are offered in packages of 50.
Archival Tip: Fragile documents should never be just file-folder stored. Use protective packaging such as our envelopes, interleaving materials or sleeves, as appropriate and as desired.
