What is a bank of tabs?
A bank is a number of tabs in a single vertical layer. Tab widths are equally divided over the vertical span, which is 10" (-1/2" inset before and after the tabs) from a standard sheet. Depending on the number of tabs you require, you may specify single or multiple banks of tabs.
What is a set of tabs?
A "Set" of tabs are all tabs that go together into one individual book or binder. A set can be one bank of tabs, or it can even consist of different size tabs in many banks.
What is the Tab Extension:
The tab extension is the part of the tab that sticks out from the body or sheet.
What are the different size tab extensions?
1/4", 3/8", 1/2" 3/4". 1/2" is standard and an additional cost is required for any other size than standard.
What is "Mylar" or "Lamination" on the tab extension?
The laminated coating applied to the tab is sometimes referred to as "Mylar" or "lamination". The tab extension takes a lot of abuse when in use, either in a binder, filing system or catalog and the Mylar helps to maintain the appearance. You can also add color to your regular black ink Tabs.
What is the Binding Edge?
The binding edge is the edge of the sheet that is to be bound. Typically this is on the opposite end of the tab extensions. Best if it is Reinforced to prevent tarring out.
What is Body Copy?
Body copy is a term used to indicate printing on the sheet of the paper, not including the tab extension. For instance, a Bank sometimes gets their logo printed in the center of their sheets (the body copy).
What Paper Weight do you offer?
The standard weight of paper index tabs is 90 lb (100 lb Tag). However, 110 lb (125 lb Tag) is available for a small up charge.
What is turn time?
Turn Time is how long it will take us to manufacture your Custom products.
Do your Turn Times include weekends?
No, all Turn Times are working days only.
What are overs & Unders?
Only on Custom Orders. On every custom order STAT must cut more material than needed because there will be spoilage through each stage of production. What is left of good quality product we ship to the customer. This amount will never exceed 10% over the quantity requested. Unders are when Stat ships less than the quantity requested. It is rare that this happens but may occur on jobs that are difficult to manufacture.
Will I be invoiced for the overs?
Yes, you will be charged for all products that are shipped to you.
Do you make odd shaped tabs also?
Unfortunately No. We use high speed tab manufacturing machines that allow us to cut the particular shape of tab that is designed to minimize tearing.
Can the Laminated portion of the Tab be copied on?
Yes, but only our Copyable Mylar Blank Tabs. They are supplied blank ready to be printed digitally by you. Conventional Mylar cannot be digitally printed on.
What are Copier Tabs or Docu-Tabs?
Copier tabs are blank, unprinted index divider tabs. The user imprints custom tab titles as needed using a high-speed copier or laser printer. They allow creation of custom printed tabs using print-on-demand technology, saving time and money. Generally the other pages of a document are printed at the same time as the tabs, delivering a finished, assembled document in one pass.
Can I use Copier Tabs in my desktop laser or inkjet printer?
Not normally. Most of these printers can only feed paper up to 8 1/2" wide, and most tabs are 9" wide.
