Decorative Hanging File Boxes

Decorative hanging file boxes are a great way to keep your files on hand so that you can locate items you need easily and quickly. From commemorative postcards, letters and pictures to vital business records, they are a way to either have information on hand or to archive it in an accessible manner. File boxes come in a variety of sizes and styles, so you should have no difficulty in finding one that fits with your décor and also meets your needs.

Archival and Storage File Boxes

Sturdy pasteboard or plastic file boxes can have labels on the front or side, enabling locating content quickly and easily. They are often stackable, which means that they can be placed in a closet or in a safe warehousing area pending such time as the documents are required or that they age out of being needed. A word of caution, however. They should usually not be stacked more than three high or the weight of upper boxes can cause lower ones to split and sag. They really do best on wire racks that enable easy access.

Immediate Access for Working Files

If you are a secretary or clerk who works in an office that has frequent public access, one thing you don’t want is stacks of files on your desk. In fact, most employers prefer that only the project on which you are currently working be in view. A rolling file with hanging sleeves can help keep the information you need at hand without unsightly stacks of documents. It can also keep on hand those things that will need attention in the near future.

Personal or Home Filing

Homes have many things that benefit from being placed in hanging files. These can include pictures, DVDs, letters, bills, and important papers for your home or vehicle. A hanging filing keeps them organized and ready for use or perusal when desired. Below you will find several examples of file boxes, suitable for a variety of décor options or work needs. Some are good for storage, some are sufficiently decorative to keep things out in your living room or kitchen, while others project that crisp, professional air you want for your business.
