Circa Plastic Tab Dividers Multicolored
Love them- but thick
I love these, and they are certainly sturdy- but in order to save space I wind up cutting the entire page (see photo) so that overall, the entire selection of dividers only takes up one width of the divider. The drawback is that you see pages (not as pretty) as you see in the pic, but it cuts down significantly on the bulk. I'd love to see a set like I have created OR a thinner version (somehow, i know that the quality matters)

Thoughts on Tab Labeling
I have used these tabs daily for over a year and both the tabs and the labels look as good as the day I purchased them. I labeled my tabs with a Brother P-Touch label maker, using black print on clear tape. I then trimmed the tape with an Exacto knife to make it conform to the shape of the tabs.
Very classy! The clear tape allows the beauty of the tabs to show through, the black print makes them easity readable, and the tape has never peeled a bit, although it is easy to remove if so desired.
Try it, you'll like it!

I bought two sets of these dividers. They are sturdy and serve their function, but labelling the tabs comes down to this. You can write directly on the plastic, thus making the tab sections somewhat permanent. OR, you can use the white paper tabs that come with the dividers...except that there is no adhesive or covering for them, so I think you have to tape on the tabs? or glue them on? weird. So, again, you have to write on them (somewhat permanent) or tape on the white paper labels that come in the package. Seems like Levenger could work with their manufacturer on a better solution for labeling the tabs.

Great but expensive
Great to use with your notebooks but expensive!!

Great for organizing your Circa
I bought these with my first Circa notebook to clearly and easily divide things up among five accounts that I manage. They are very nice looking - pretty colors and slightly translucent. The tab dividers that extend out are great, as you can add labels to them to quickly spot where you want to flip to (it's nice that labels come in the pack). Although I just started using them they seem to be of very good quality and extremely durable.

More Than a Divider
I work with a content management system, and I need to report on how many pages were edited each day/week/quarter. I was using legal pads, but when I switched to a Circa notebook, I realized I needed to quickly find my place. I've been using the divider set both to separate the "notes" portion of my notebook from the "tracking" section, and I use the front-most divider as a page finder. It is so easy to remove and replace that I don't mind moving it daily - something that couldn't be done with a legal pad or without hassle on a three ring binder. Thanks for such a quality product!

best circa accessory
I think I got a set of these tabs with my circa starter kit. I love them and I have moved them from notebook to notebook. Circa is essential - I don't use a blackberry/palm or laptop for notes - pen and paper are the way to go and the movable pages of circa make it possible to be a much more effective note taker.

Work well, BUT...
Great quality dividers - I doubt they'll need replacing anytime soon - but I have to agree with many other reviewers on the color selection. It's almost as if you went out of your way to find the ugliest colors available. Whoa! If you want to keep a muted palette that's fine, but please offer something for the rest of us who'd like a little "zip" in the book we access a dozen times a day. Thanks!

Stickers don't stick
Dividers work great, just wish the stickers that shipped with the product actually stuck to the tabs. When they fall off after one day, then you have no idea what's in each category. Annoying. How about sticker labels that stick?

Sturdy and Sleek
First, let me say that I'm a total organization geek. I have no idea how I lived without these dividers for so long, but all I can say is that I'm just glad that I had enough sense to finally buy them.
I recently started using these dividers to keep everything in my Junior-sized notebook neat and tidy. As a fiction writer, I prefer to do the majority of my early preparation with a regular old pen and paper. I found Circa when I went searching for something better than my old mash-up of stray notebooks. I now use my Circa system for all of my pre-writing and rough drafts. These dividers are really handy for keeping my story notes, first drafts, and journal entries all neat and separated. The package also comes with some handy adhesive-backed labels to stick on the tabs--very thoughtful, Levenger!
I guess the only complaint I have is that the colors on these dividers are a little on the boring side. The blue, green, and violet are nice, but the brown and tan shades really do nothing for me aesthetically. But that's a pretty minor complaint when the overall functionality of these dividers are taken into consideration. They are thin enough not to add any excess bulk to your notebook, but sturdy enough to keep up with your daily demands.
