Make reference materials user-friendly...
Index tab dividers spruce up your books and publications, give your documents that professional look and make them more user-friendly and easier to read.
The time-saving value of index tabs should not be overlooked. Experts say tabs can reduce the time needed to find specific information by as much as 40%.
Like website and email links they lead you immediately to specific sections of your document.
Unlike the bookmark feature in PDFs, which is rarely used, printed index tabs are intuitive, convenient, and foolproof.
And unlike hyperlinks on web pages and in emails, index tab dividers don’t lead the user far away from your pertinent content.
Indexing provides welcome breaks to large volumes. This is an important feature, particularly for complex technical publications.
Index tab applications include instructions and training manuals, workbooks, price books, directories and employee handbooks, product and service catalogs and sales pieces.
Copresco produces hundreds of books and publications with index tabs. Tabs are produced in various sizes, styles and paperweights, with or without mylar reinforcing.
Printing on the body of the divider increases the graphic appeal of the book, grabs the reader’s interest and sets the stylistic tone for the entire document.
You will gain even more attention with Copresco’s beautiful full-color, full-bleed tab dividers.
Text, numbers or combinations of text and numbers may be used to designate document sections. You can use artwork or an overview of a section’s contents by printing on the body of the index sheet.
A bank of indexes comprises a single row of tabs. This may work well for a small manual. But for large books, we recommend multiple banks (two or more rows) within the same section to separate chapters and highlight key areas such as charts and tables.
We can typeset your tab copy using standard layout templates, or we can image the titles from your digital files.
And we can imprint and insert your tab dividers in-line as the document is reproduced. It’s faster and more cost-effective.
