The dividers offered allow you to store each number, alphabet letter, and month separately so they can easily be accessed later.

The color coded labels are designed to be applied to manilla file folders. Each file folder can accept one or multiple labels to distinguish the particular by folder. We offer labels to differentiate by alphabetic letter, number, month, auto make, or year; Each sticker features a unique color that can be quickly identified visually. When a series of files are stored next to each other, misfiled folders can easily be identified by an unusual color standing out. For example, if all folders for the year 2018 are filed next to each other with a purple label, a yellow 2012 label will stand out as being different. Multiple labels can be used together to form more sophisticated patterns; for example, months and years can be used to differntiate precise dates of files.
