- To calculate the size of the tab subtract ½” from the head and ½ “ from the foot of paper and divide the balance with number of banks you want to create. For example: Tab size on a 5 bank tab on 11” will be 2”. Its calculated as 11” minus 1” (1/2” each for head and foot) =10” divided by 5(number of tabs) which comes to 2″
- The stock goes through heat platen while applying Mylar. Jobs with heavy ink coverage may mark.
A strip of clear acetate can be applied to the side of the tabbed sheet to add strength to the holes and prevent tearing under heavy use. There is always the question of which side the reinforcement should be applied–the front and be visible, or the back and be hidden. Its another detail to consider and ask before placing an order.
Strip Mylar® Reinforcement:
Mylar® can be used to cover and reinforce the tabs. Mylar® protects the tab from wear and tear and keeps the edges of the tab from tearing or fraying. We strongly recommend Mylar® for heavily-used reference materials.
