Best Binder Pockets in 2020



C-Line Biodegradable Acid-Free Poly Binder Pocket with 1-Inch Gusset, Side Loading, Clear, 10 Pockets per Pack (33747) Review:


I'm a commuter college student, and I carry one binder with everything I need for the week in my book-bag. I wanted something to put bus schedules in. This works for what I needed it for, but I only needed one. So, I was looking for alternative uses for the other 9 pockets. Manuals and extra chords fit decently well. Sewing patterns fit too. I'd recommend 1 per pocket if you couldn't get the pattern back in the envelop it came in. Alternatively, you could put two patterns back-to-back if you could fit the pattern in the original envelop. In the end, I settled on putting my comic books in the pockets. I had my comic books in regular page protector sheets (they were also protected by Mylar bags with acid free backing boards), but I wasn't happy with that arrangement; there was a ton of wiggle room and they shifted a lot. Here are the pros and cons of putting comic books in these pockets:

Pros:
+ Since the pockets Velcro shut, you won't have to worry about your comics falling out.
+ If you don't have space for a comic book box, you can use these to put your comic books in a binder.
+ I don't know what the weight limit is, but it's more than a standard sheet protector, so they don't get weighted down by the comics when you pull the binder off the shelf.
+ You can fit up to 8 comics in the pocket comfortably and have the Velcro overlap perfectly.

Cons:
- If you put more than two comics back-to-back in these pockets, you can't see which volumes are in it. [That being said, you could put a list of missing comics in the front of your binder and otherwise organize the comics in groups of 5, which is what I did for a series with 35 volumes.]
- There are gaps in the corners so dust or water can get in.
- They're not going to protect against sun damage since they're clear.

Overall, I'd say it's a good storage option for casual comic collectors, especially if you don't have enough comics to fill or the space for a comic book box. Anyone who's super serious about their collection will probably want the comic book boxes though.



Oxford Two-Pocket Folders, Assorted Colors, Letter Size, 25 per Box (57513) Review:


I wanted to write a very brief and quick review because I was hesitant to purchase these folders and wanted to help other people if they also were hesitant because of some of the negative reviews listed here.

1. The colors do not smear anywhere, I vigorously rubbed my rugged hands in between, on top of, and through all the folders and did not notice any color-smearing.

2. Yes these folders are pretty thin/flimsy. But if you are just a simple college student like me and need the folders to organize some papers- these will completely suffice. They are equivalent to the cheap folders Walmart has when school is starting up.

3. The smell. The smell was fine; I was actually kind of scared about this before purchasing, but I did not experience any issues.

Those were all the issues that made me hesitate, and I am sure most of them were true at some point. As of August 2016 though, I think this company fixed all of the issues listed above.



Avery Two-Pocket Folders, Dark Blue, 25 Covers Review:


I bought these folders for an event where each attendee checked in and received a folder of information. My primary motivator to purchase was the price, but I was really pleased with the quality when they arrived. The texture of the folders is really nice and the matte finish looks so much more professional to me than the glossy ones I see everywhere. The yellow is bright, fun and difficult to lose (always a bonus with event attendees). The color was consistent across the several boxes of folders I ordered and the slot for a business card is a nice touch. I would definitely purchase these again.

Like most people, I rely on honest product reviews to make purchase decisions. Because the experience of others has been so helpful to me, I try to provide honest, helpful reviews to assist other shoppers in selecting the right products for them. I hope my review has been helpful to you!



Avery 47993 Two-Pocket Folder, 40-Sheet Capacity, Assorted Colors (Box of 25) Review:


Can't beat a box of 25 Avery folders for $6. These aren't the plastic ones, so not made for crazy abuse, obviously. But definitely made of good and sturdy thick paper, as described, and perfect for my use (I use them for organizing houshold/personal paperwork and documents). I really like the colors (blues, black and red) and prefer them to a lot of the preschool-looking colors (bright primary) folders often come in. Just what I needed at a price I could afford and in colors I enjoy.



LaOficina 11 Holes Clear Poly Envelope Binders Pocket Insert with Hook and Loop Closure Letter Size 10 Packs Review:


Perfect for what I needed it for! Holds my important documents (birth certificates, social security cards, daughters doctor visit summaries, etc.) holds just as much as it says it does, no issues closing for me.. and some of the papers are thicker than others so I figured I would have trouble but was surprised to not. Perfect!



Avery Mini Binder Pockets, Assorted Colors, Fits 3-Ring and 7-Ring Binders, Durable, 5 Slash Jackets (75307) Review:


I use these, extensively, as well as the color ones intermittently. I am often a "brand loyal" person, and Avery is one of those brands, for me! The binder pockets are fairly heavy weight plastic, and the Avery brand hold up to day to day use better than "generic" versions I have seen. These bend, fold, and crease less, as others look to be lighter weight plastic. Also, the edges tear, at times, primarily the right, lower side. The one "improvement" I'm not so fond of is the stamping or embossing around the pocket, now. They used fold the front pocket over the back, about a half inch or so, and I think heat seal it. With the stamping, I am guessing that was done to improve durability, but it makes the inside dimension smaller - still holds standard size paper, but fewer. And, the pages have to be pretty well aligned to get in more easily. Wonder if they could fold the pocket over and somehow stamp it on the back? Improve durability without compromising the inside measurement?? But, it certainly has not deterred me from using these. I use for my classes - lecture notes, articles, etc.; at home for articles, the bill binder, etc. I use clear more, but use the colors for color coding various things.

Antner 12pcs Binder Pocket A6 Size 6 Holes Binder Zipper Folders for 6-Ring Notebook Binder Loose Leaf Bags, Waterproof PVC Pouch Document Filing Bags Review:


Got these to put in my recently purchased clear 6 ring binders for all my bible journaling clear stamps. They fit perfectly and can now see and find the stamps I want to use.

Avery 47987 Two-Pocket Folder, 40-Sheet Capacity, Green (Box of 25) Review:


The reason I say good folders is because I really thought I was just paying for one! I did not pay any attention to quantity. I just needed one for my mother to turn in her quarterly papers to senior building. Green is a favorite color of mine, so I will be using them in the future. We used to use them a lot when I was working. I recommend for the price!
