- They are tabs Review by Andrew
- Works great if you know what you are doing... Review by Joe F.
I tried taping the tab sheet to a piece of paper after making my custom table in MS Word and just running it through my printer. Problem was, that doesn't work too well - tab sheet shifts/slides a bit leaving blurry/distorted text on the tabs.
I will make a long story short buy getting right to the point of what works like a champ. Create a table in MS Word with invisible borders and set your font size to around 10 pt. Type in some sample tab titles and print them out on a blank sheet of paper. Next, pull off an individual tab and place the yellow region of the tab over top of the text to make sure the text fits properly. BTW, It helps if you use high-grade paper for this process.
Once you get your text size, positioning, and alignment squared away, pull off each individual PPI tab from the sheet and align so the text on the sheet is exactly where you want it. Next, press down gently on the adhesive part so that you can remove them from your paper sheet prior to placing them on the pages of your reference material.
Place the sheet with the tabs in the laser printer tray and print away. The text should line up perfectly on your tab. Gently peel the tab off the sheet of paper (trim the tab with a scissors if you want) and place on the particular page you'd like to tab and voila. Instant perfect tab.
The process works like a champ but is a bit time consuming. After a bit of practice I feel like an expert tabber.
Tabs look great and work wonderfully.
Btw, I tried to erase the laser printed text using acetone and ran into a bit of trouble. If you find yourself in need of removing the printed text from the tab I found that a dry cloth and a tiny bit of 'elbow grease' takes the text off very quickly.
I am giving 5-stars to these tabs. If you can master the procedure I outlined above you will absolutely love these tabs. (Posted on 9/5/12)
- Not quite there yet !!! Review by Eric
From all of them, YES the PPI tabs are the stiffer and the more resistant to tearing.
Two things that I find disappointing though:
- 1st: The price versus the quantity....... way much more than any other brands, even Post-it.
- 2nd: The costomizable "thing"........ I tried all the pens, pencils and permanent markers that I own.... and NONE can either write on the tabs or stay marked on the tabs when we touch it...... even days after.
I'm still trying new pens and markers, but so far I'm pretty disappointed of my $22.50 purchase ($8.50 + shipping) and rely on the Post-it tabs at $3.50 for 36 on which marking stays even after touching them often! (Posted on 4/1/12)
