Excellent Product!
These are wonderful! It's so nice to be able to SEE what's inside, rather than having to open it up, write or list on the outside what it is, etc. I'm using them for tax receipts, home projects receipts, Medicare information, and other important paperwork.They are a heavier plastic, so they seem durable. It would be nice if they made them with pleated bottoms like the expanding folders, so they would have the capability to hold more without being bulky. Just a thought. Otherwise, I am very pleased with these clear envelopes and would recommend them to a friend.

Material comes off corners
the reason I am having to buy more is because the edging at the bottom left corner has come loose and I can't mend it.

Very useful
I brought these to color code project paperwork I'm working on and they are working very well. I do have a slight fear the Velcro may not last as long as the envelopes themselves.

So glad I got these

Clear Envelopes
I carry paperwork with me when I winter in Florida. This is a great way to keep categories separate and see each one.

Holds large photos
This is the only product/envelope that I have found that will hold 11' x 13' photos without having to cut them down.
Aug 13, 2015
I would buy again and again.
Very large. Great space for a lot of papers. Can see what is in envelope.

A great organizing tool
We liked the first order of these so well that I ordered another. Being clear, it makes finding things so much easier. Instead of stacks of papers, I am getting things in these envelopes which can be stood upright and seen instantly. Love these. I might even order another set eventually.

Absolutely love these!
I absolutely love this product - I use it to store all of my past tax receipts and returns. They are a huge help to keep things organized. I especially love that I can see at a glance what is in each file. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this product!

Better than I'd hoped!
I bought two packs of these awhile back to organize some papers, cross-stitch patterns, and sheet music -- and now I'm back to buy two more packs! I love that they are see-through, durable, and of a size that fits most of the things I put in them without folding. I use them also for magazine articles and recipes that interest me, taxes and receipts -- I could go on and on! And I know they will be protected, and can be transported with ease. One of the best purchases I've ever made from H. Carter!

I'll be buying more
Great for organizing my bills, recipes and other papers. I wish ther was a letter size so I ccould file them in my filing cabinet though.
Jan 24, 2014
These are awesome!
These are so secure and handy, I use them to store receipts and tax returns. I also sort warrantees by type (ie appliances, electronics) for quick and easy identification and reference. Stores nicely in a regular file storage box available anywhere. Great product!!!

Nice Size!
I'm using them for my bills and loss recipes but wish the bottom was pleated to expand. All in all I'm happy with the product. They are larger than I thought they'd be.

Great See-Thhrough Folder
I had previously ordered this packet of folders and ordered some more. The clear view makes it easy to grab the correct folder you are looking for because you can see what is inside. We each use these by color to organize our medical information, Social Security, Medicare, etc.

I cleared up my stack of paper work/clutter in few minutes. Never looked so neat. Hope they don't wear out soon, but seem to be sturdy.

Seams thin, cheap, tearing in a week!
I put in a couple pages per envelope and the seams just tore, gave out!

No More "Out of Sight Out of Mind"
This is my second order. I've found that using them for active files will keep me active in all of my projects and work. Non active files or receipts I will continue to use the leftover old manila file folders. I will be ordering more soon and I especially like the color coding element. Green/Red Christmas projects Yellow spring, weddings, tea's, Blue summer, garden.

Not just for papers
Good for keeping papers clean. We all have the need for items like this to carry papers to your appointments in tax time. But I have found a few more uses. Great for a few bandages and swabs and similar items when out with the kids. For picnic napkins, a few cosmetics in a tote bag, music sheets in an outdoor performance. The uses can be many.

Time Saver
We started out using these envelopes to keep track of ongoing home projects. With several things going on at once it was easy to locate and refer to the project i.e. solar paperwork in red, refinance paperwork in green etc. I have now gone back and organized old paperwork such as income tax forms etc. It is so nice to be able to view the contents without opening the folders.

I have quilting projects that I take with me. I was looking for a larger size that would fit the quilt squares. Also that it is plastic, protects the squares. I have used them quite a few times already.

Perfect for Emergency Info on Fridge
I assist elderly persons in our community with documenting their emergency information. These durable and colorful clear folders are perfect for holding all the necessary paperwork. I purchased small but powerful magnets and this hangs nicely and attractively on the refrigerators.

Some snaps don't close
I would return thses, but shipping costs are to high. That is the problem with ordering on line when you can't look at the product.

My second order of these beauties!
I use these envelopes to store papers, thin books & other items that fit this description. I have been storing particular items to give to my grandson as he grows. I use the other envelopes my store receipts, clothes labels, etc. One is especially put aside for all new appliance tags, instruction booklets, etc.

I selected this item because I envisioned that it would assist me in the organization of paperwork in my home. It meets that requirement as well as being durable and visible. So far, a very good product.

Arrived bent
The envelopes arrived bent due to the way they were packaged. I'm afraid to put any documents in them because I don't want them to conform to the shape and also get bent. I currently have heavy objects on them trying to straighten them out.

I don't trust that these will last. Maybe it won't but it seems like it will tear very easy.

Great Tool for School Teachers
Our daughter is a school teacher of 4th grade children. She is using them to send papers and correspondnece home with the children to the parents. They work great for that purpose and the children really like the colors!

GREAT Product
I have a set of these for the past year and use them almost daily. I use one for Take-Out Menus, another for recipes I cut out of magazines, another for receipts and one for instruction manuals for appliances. One of these is so overfilled I am surprised it holds up to all the abuse. I love these and have been more organized since owning them. You can easily see what each envelope contains. The closure snaps work well. I am getting another set so I can organize even MORE!
Aug 12, 2011
Excellent product!
Love these. In fact I just ordered two more sets. I strongly recommend them.
