Tab It: An Avery NoteTabs Review

  • Oct 14, 2009
  • by
As a student, I selected the Avery NoteTabs in hopes they would help organize my reading and studies. I currently use Post-it one inch wide flags to indicate important pages in my textbook. This system works for me; however the flags are too flimsy for page turning.

The Avery NoteTabs I selected are shaped like the tabs found on file folders. The three inch length is about three quarters the length of a file folder tab. Using the NoteTabs, I can easily turn to specifically marked pages. If the NoteTab is positioned incorrectly, it easily lifts and re-sticks to a new location without lifting ink or leaving a sticky residue. As a page marker, the NoteTabs is an excellent tool.

Avery claims these NoteTabs will work "with most writing instruments," but includes a disclaimer stating "Results may vary depending on ... type of ink." I tested the NoteTabs using a pencil, gel rolling ball pen, ball point pens of various colors, and a highlighter. The paper coated tab accepts writing better than the clear sticky section. However the clear sticky section area smudges and transfers small spots of ink unless left to dry a short while. The pencil smeared on the paper tab section as well. Additionally the pale pastel tab colors provided plenty of contrast with the ink.

As a simple page marker, the Avery NoteTabs work great. Writing on the see-through area is not as good as Avery claims. However with the right pen and a little drying time, they should work.

Thicker more effective tabs
Easy to remove and reposition
Doesn't lift ink, leave residue

Written text smears and bleeds

'Avery NoteTabs' are a great option for people that want to add edits and notes to existing documents and/or hard copies. With the ability to write on the flag and on the inside as well, these are multi-dimensional note tabs that can be used in more than just 1 way.    If you are an individual that does lots of markups by hand and want a way to quickly get to your notes and edits, this is a great option that goes beyond your standard post-it note!!    ***** HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Avery 3 x 1.5 Note Tabs are perfect for a multitude of uses. They are color coded in three pastel shades, are heavy enough for everyday use and clear where the adhesive portion sticks to the page. They are even re-positionable should you need to move them (I did) plus they won't damage the document or lift ink, and they work with most writing instruments.    For my test and review I used them on the pages of a jewelry design binder as sub-tabs under an item header (making it …
