Here's a guide to our label sizes that are designed for labelling files and folders.
These labels were designed to keep your paperwork organised and help make sure you know exactly what you’ve got stored and where.
The three main filing products we supply are:
- LP4/192: There are four labels per sheet, each measuring 192mm x 62mm.
- LP4/200: There are four labels per sheet, each measuring 200mm x 60mm.
- LP7/192: There are seven labels per sheet, each measuring 192mm x 39mm.
So, which one should you choose?
There are a couple of considerations here; the size of your file or folder, whether or not the file already has a label stuck onto it, and what size of label you prefer to use.
- Check the size of the spine of your file or folder. While most files and folders will be the around the same size, there will be some variance. Box files and lever arch files tend to be largest, with the exact size depending on the space given to the locking mechanism or lever arch, while ring binders are usually thinner, with the exact size depending on the size of the ring mechanism.
- If the file or folder already has a label on it, you may want to make sure that you pick a replacement label that is the same size or larger than the existing label. You may be able to remove the existing label quite easily, but if it is likely to break apart or leave behind residue, it may be simpler to leave it in place and cover it up with a brand new label.
- You may only want to add a little bit of information, in which case a smaller label may look neater. Alternatively, if you prefer a large label or want space to add more information in the future, then you should choose one of the larger sizes.
