Index Tabs, Copier Tabs, Litigation Tabs, Family Court Tabs, Quick Tabs, Deluxe Tabs, Engineering Tabs, and Tab Dividers. There are so many terms for these useful organization tools, but unless you know what they all mean, you could end up buying the wrong thing.
That’s why we have decided to come up with a list of the 5 commonly used terms when referring to Tab Dividers.
- Cut –Think of it as a puzzle, the tab cut would be how many puzzle pieces would be visible from the top to the bottom of the sheet of paper. For example, if you have a 5th Cut tab that means that there are 5 tabs that can be visible from the left side of the page.
- Position – Position is where the tab would fit in that puzzle. Is it the 2nd piece from the top or the 4th? If you have tabs numbered #1-#10 on the side going from the top of the page down to the bottom (10th cut), #5 would be the in the 5th
- Bank – Let’s go back to our example of the 10 tabs in 10th You need tabs #1-#30, but you still want to only see 10 tabs at a time. In this case each set of 10 would be considered a bank. So #1-#10 would be the first bank, #11-#20 would be the second bank and #21-#30 would be the third bank.
- Single - When tabs are made, they are not made already going from 1-10 or A-Z, they are all made individually. If you just need certain numbers, letters or positions, than you would order them as singles or individually (you’re not going to buy #1-#10 if all you need is a #7). This way you will receive multiple tabs of the same position.
- Set - If you need tabs already put together in numbers going in order or A-Z for example, than you would order them in a set. A set will give you one tab of each position in that bank, whether you are talking about letters, numbers or blank tabs.
