“ Brand: Ryman / Type: Pack of 10 Divdiers for a ringbinder „
For each of the subjects I do at college, I have separate folders in order to keep my work organised and easy to go through at a later date. I chose separate colours also for each of them, so that if I were to purchase for example, a ringbinder and a folder, I would know that blue = English Literature. I am very precise in how I order my work and so to maintain the level of organisation I need to work well I purchased A4 dividers from Rymans so that my work could be categorised even further in my ringbinders.
The pack I bought is, as I mentioned, A4 sized and comes in a pack of 10. This is excellent as I tend to use only about 3-4 per folder, so I definitely get value for money and can use them for numerous subjects/notes. The colours of the dividers are mainly pastel shades and are orange, yellow, green, pink, and blue. The shade of the dividers is useful as it means that any writing I write on them to make it clear which section follows is clear and easy to read, especially if I'm only quickly flicking through and need to find a particular subject fast. The tab, as you'd expect, is pretty standard sized a little over an inch perhaps, which is just enough to write a small title to whatever it is you are categorising behind the divider. It is however, a little difficult to write more than one word in this space, so you may have to flick through your ringbinder or folder to find each subject, but that isn't really that difficult anyway.
I bought a pack of dividers for about £1.90 but have recently seen them in store for much less than that. Especially just before the school year starts, it is well worth popping into the store to see if they are doing any deals like buy one get one free, or 2 for 3, as they are excellent value and well worth having just in case.
This is an excellent and cheap product that is well worth purchasing, especially if you are keen to be an organised student or office worker. They are clear, bright and colourful and look great in any folder. They also come already punched through with numerously situated holes so that they can easily slot into any folder or ringbinder. This is definitely a product I would recommend and as usual Rymans continues to sell good value items at affordable prices, which is great for a struggling student like myself!
Ryman's dividers basically do the job that's asked of them. They are designed to be able to be placed in an A4 ring binder to segregate out sections and allow work to be better organised. I opted for the Ryman dividers really because it was just convenience as I was in Ryman's anyway - and these seemed like an okay product. Within the cellophane packaging, you get 10 dividers of different colours, as well as an index page that can go at the front of the folder. The are suitable for an A4 binder. The pack of 10 costs £1.49 from Ryman, which I think is a pretty decent price.
Each sheet is a different colour and so it's possible to colour tag the subjects and then write what each colour represents on the index sheet at the front. Each sheet is plastic and so it can't be written on itself - although there are little tabs that stick out and so you could stick a label on it if you so wished (although I don't see the necessity as there is an index). Whilst coloured, the plastic sheets are transparent and so you can see what's underneath. They are already hole punched in 4 places and so they are suitable for ring binders with 2 or 4 levers. Because the sheets are made of plastic, I don't find any need to reinforce the holes as they are reinforced already.
I think these dividers work well and I would recommend them for anyone who wants to keep their work in order. Because you don't need to write on them, you can reuse them for other projects.
To keep all of my university work and lecture notes in order, dividers are essential as my work for this year alone spans 5 big ringbinders. I therefore bought the cheapest I could find in the stationary shop on campus, which was these ones from Rymans for 59p at the time.
For the price, you get 10 A4 multicoloured dividers that will fit any style of A4 ringbinder. They come in Pink, Blue, Red, Green and Yellow and you get two of each colour. Each divider measures 30 cm x 21 cm and is made of a thin card. Each divider has a small tab that sticks out the right hand side that is 4cm x 1cm, which is large enough to write on. They come in a very simple thin plastic wrapper, which makes them easy to spot and to look at.
With these dividers, the tabs on the side are staggered down the page, so that when they are used in a folder you can read all the tabs with ease. The dividers are not reinforced around the holes, which has proved a problem with some. I have found that you have to be quite careful with them as if you pull on them too much then the holes can rip and the divider is ruined. One solution I have found to this is to put a small bit of sellotape on the card between the hole and the edge of the divider. This has helped to reinforce the hole and since doing this, none of them have torn. I really like the colours that these come in as it brightens up my folders and also makes it a lot easier to distinguish each section.
For the price, I have no problems with these. I like the basic packaging that they come in as it means you are paying for the product and not any fancy packaging. For the money, they are great value and offer many uses with ringbinders. It is a shame that they aren't reinforced though, but this can be solved with a bit of sellotape. I will therefore be giving these 4/5 as they are really good but could do with reinforcement.
Thanks for reading!
