WHSmith A4 File Pockets
Advantages: Useful and good quality
Disadvantages: None for me
Plastic pockets are something I have always used, either at home or at school and college they always seem to be something that I've had. The last pack I bought were from WHSmith and cost £3.49 for a pack of 50, I usually buy them from WHSmith because I deal with them through work where I order all the stationary and so I buy them slightly cheaper.
The File Pockets are sold in a plastic wrapper with a small blue label that had the WHSmith logo on it and 50 A4 File Pockets.
I've found file pockets are more or less the same wherever I've bought them but I always think these are slightly stronger where they are bonded together around the edges. . Pocket files are simply a plastic envelope with the opening at the top and holes punched in a small margin down the side so you can fit them into a 2 hole or 4 hole ring binder. These files should fit most A4 files. The file pockets are clear and shiny, you can get frosted pocket files but personally I prefer unfrosted.
Pocket files have so many uses either for studying, offices and just at home generally. I have used mine for my Open University course to keep my assignments in good condition. I also use them for household documents. I didn't realise how important it was to keep all household documents in order until I got my own house and file pockets certainly make this easier.
I just keep all my documents, bank statements etc in their own pocket file and keep them in ring binders. This not only keeps them together and in order but prevents them from getting damaged and lost and if for any reason I need to look at one I can find it quickly and easily.
While I was planning my wedding last year my mum suggested making a complete record of our plans and preparations, every email I sent I printed and every letter and receipt was kept. All this was duly put in file pockets and finally filed and stored in a large ring binder. The result is a total record of all the planning my mum and myself did, the pockets not only have letters in but also fabric samples, colour charts and all sorts of bits and pieces. The plastic pocket files will keep them in good condition for years to come.
If you use file pockets then I would certainly recommend the WHSmith brand. They are good quality and I have never had one split. The seams are bonded together well making them reasonably strong. The price is good and although value brands are cheaper they are not a patch of the quality of WHSmith ones. If you are looking to use file pockets whether its for home, study or work then I would suggest having a look at these.
Summary: A useful item for work, study or home
