What is the difference between 1/3 cut and 1/5 cut file folders?

1/3 cut means that there are three possible tab positions, each being 1/3 of the width. 1/5 cut means there are five possible tab positions, each being 1/5 of the width. I guess what you choose really depends how much writing you need to fit on the tab.

Similarly, what is the difference between 1/3 cut and 1/5 cut hanging file folders?

1/3 are the longer tabs and 1/5 are the shorter tabs. Think of (with respects to the 1/3 tabs) it taking 3 of the tabs to make a folder. With the 1/5, it takes 5 tabs to make the length of the folder (thus each tab is shorter than the 1/3). No, hanging folders and tabs are required by you.

Subsequently, question is, what are the sizes of hanging file folders? A letter size file folder, folded along the primary score line, shall measure 8 5/8 inches in height (for the front flap), 9 5/8 inches in height (for the back flap), and 11 3/4 inches in width. The allowable variation for each dimension shall be plus or minus 1/16 inch.

Then, what are the types of file folders?

  • Hanging File Folders.
  • Straight Tab Folders.
  • Right-Cut Tabs.
  • Repositionable Tabs.
  • Colored File Folders.
