Really good value lever arch files, arrived in a cardboard box wih no padding or cushioning. One corner of one of my files was damaged, but still usable. The quality of the files is excellent - as good, if not better than other brands from well known high street shops. There is a textured plastic covering which makes these files look and feel more expensive than they really are. Just one other (small) issue I had, there was one file (the white one) which had a manufacturing defect on the metal where the rings of the binder can not be squeezed through the small opening. In effect, I cannot close this binder, as the metal is in the way due to the metal being clamped on the wrong way round. Difficult to show on a photo, but I've included a picture of the white and beige folders together so you have an idea. Overall, very happy with my purchase. Just loses one star due to the defect/damamge.
