Printable copier tabs are an easy and effective way to create branded presentations, training manuals, and other company documents. There are many brands and styles of customizable index tabs on the market, allowing you to produce the perfect dividers for any project. Below we take a look at the three most common collation styles for printable copier tabs:
1.Reverse Collated: Also called “single reverse collated” or “single reverse.” The tabs are collated in reverse order (i.e. 5-4-3-2-1). This style is most commonly used in copier models from the Xerox DocuTech family as well as machines from Kodak, Canon, IBM, Heidelberg, Océ, Ricoh, and many others.
2.Straight Collated: Also called “single straight collated” or “single straight.” The tabs are collated in order (i.e. 1-2-3-4-5). These tabs are used in the Xerox DocuColor family as well as copier models by Savin, Toshiba, Ricoh, Konica Minolta, Gestetner, and Canon.
