Decorative Hanging File Boxes

Decorative hanging filing boxes are a great way to keep your files handy so you can easily and quickly find the items you need.  From memorial postcards, letters and pictures to important business records, they offer the ability to either have information on hand or to archive it in an accessible manner.  Filing boxes come in a variety of sizes and styles, so you shouldn’t have any trouble finding one that suits your decor and also suits your needs.

Archive and storage boxes

Robust filing boxes made of cardboard or plastic can be provided with labels on the front or side, so that contents can be found quickly and easily.  They’re often stackable, which means they can be kept in a closet or secure storage area until the documents are needed or they are no longer needed.  A word of caution.  They shouldn’t usually be stacked more than three high, otherwise the weight of the upper boxes can cause the lower boxes to split and sag.  They work best on wire mesh that allows easy access.

Instant access to work files

If you’re a secretary or an employee who works in an office that is often open to the public, you don’t want piles of files on your desk.  In fact, most employers prefer to only see the project that you are currently working on.  A rolling file with sleeves hanging can help keep the information you need on hand without the messy piles of documents.  It can also hold the things ready that will require attention in the near future.

Personal or private submission

Homes have many things that benefit from being put on file.  These can be pictures, DVDs, letters, bills and important papers for your home or vehicle.  A hanging shelf keeps them organized and ready when required.  Below are some examples of file boxes that will suit a variety of decor options or work needs.  Some are good for storage, some are decorative enough to keep things out in your living room or kitchen, while others exude the fresh, professional air you want for your business.
