For centuries folders have been the simplest and most economical method for the storage of sheeted objects. Originally folders with flaps were made by placing two strips of board or paper at right angles to each other. Preferably folders are made from a single piece, thus with no glueing requirement of edges etc. which could cause damage to the archived object.
Folders without flaps consist of a strip of paper or board, folded or creased in the middle, with or without multiple creases. The surface area of a folder without flaps should be larger than the surface area of the objects to be placed inside.» to the product group
