A5 business setup and tabs

I'm working in Bermuda this week and next, providing consultancy for an organisation here. That means my  A5 Kensington was dusted off last week and filled with my consulting tools and papers relevant to this client.


I'm particularly happy with the new tabs I made. These are plain 160 gsm card, cut down from A4 to 2 A5 pieces, punched with a tab added at the side. Each of those tabs starts off looking like this in MS PowerPoint:
Then I cut them out, apply glue, fold them over so the tab part sticks to itself and the large rectangles attach to the front and back of the cut card. When the glue is dry, I wrap a piece of adhesive plastic film around the whole thing and trim with a craft knife. Here's a closeup of the finished tab:


I like the way these tabs look. They make a great impression on the client too.

They are nice.
Could you send them to "nico . turner - 9o4i3fbb AT yopmail . com" (just remove the spaces between the quotes and replace AT by @).

Thanks

Ray, those tabs are *awesome* - some of the best, most professional I have ever seen. Great job! I'm rarely an A5 user (although constantly caught in the space-versus-bulk dilemma of A5 versus Personal size), but when in A5 mode (which is rarely) I use the 'professional' divider set-up from Filofax, as I find the plastic to be more hard-wearing than card. However, these are absolutely superb.....would it possible for you to email me the PowerPoint template please? davidpopely@googlemail.com. Many thanks!

On the way, David.
