Copier Tab Terms
Copier tabs are a type of divider specifically designed to run through high speed copiers and laser printers. They are often designed for specific Xerox or DocuTech machines. Tabs are sold in four different collation styles and have a variety of finishing options. Copier tabs are a great way to add a professional look to longer documents while keeping your materials organized. Here is a short listing of common terms associated with copier tabs.
- • Bank. The bank refers to a complete row of tabs, along one edge of the document, usually the 11″ edge opposite the binding edge. Though five is the most common, banks are available in a wide variety of sizes.
- • Binding Edge. The binding edge is the side of the tab that will be bound. This may or may not come reinforced, depending on your preference.
- • Body Copy. This refers to any printing on the tab sheet other than the tab.
- • Collation. Collation is how the tabs are ordered; tab capable machines are generally designed to handle a specific style. You can choose from reverse, straight, or uncollated. Reverse collation gives you tabs in descending order (5, 4, 3, 2, 1). Straight collated tabs appear as they would in your finished product. And uncollated gives you sets of a single tab position.
- • Cut. The cut is the number of tabs in a single bank. For example, a bank of five would have 1/5th cut tabs.
- • Drilling. Also referred to as punching, this denotes holes pre-punched into the sheet. Options are available for standard three-hole punch as well as holes needed for binding machines.
- • Mylar. A plastic coating over the tab that provides a toner-receptive surface for printing. It also offers reinforcement, a wipe clean surface, and a variety of color options.
- • Plain Tabs. Plain Tabs have no Mylar coating or lamination.
- • Position. This refers to where the tab lies in the set. For example, the first position is the first tab, the second position is the second tab down, etc. This is especially relevant for uncollated tabs.
- • Set. All the tabs that go into a single document. This may be in a single bank or have multiple banks. A 15-tab set in a 1/5th cut would contain three banks of five tabs each.
- • Tab Extension. The Tab Extension is how far the tab sticks out from the sheet. The most common extension is ½ inch, resulting in an overall width of nine inches.
- • Trilar. The trademarked name for Mylar or plastic laminate coating on the individual tabs.
