Expanding File Folders


An expanding file folder has a pleated, accordion-like expanding gusset that expands as you add paper. It is the perfect way to store, transport, and organize large amounts of paperwork. When choosing how to organize documents or if you need to take documents with you, choose an expanding file folder with a flap for added security or extra dividers for separating documents.
