Treasury Tags

Anyone know of a U.S. source for Treasury Tags?
Anyone have experience using them? Do they do the job?
I'm thinking of using them for business card-sized PDA rather than Levenger/Rollabind rings, binder clips, et al.
Thanks!

Update: Thanks to all for the info, advice and offers to send a couple samples!
Based on reepicheep's comments of 19Feb10, I'm going to abandon this tact.

Levenger's used to sell them

Everything else that Google coughs up is in the UK or elsewhere-not-in-the-US

Coughing up in the UK

Here in the UK these sort lengths of string with metal ends are indeed very common. Any stationers will stock them. Even my local Post Office (nothing more than a corner shop 10' x 10') carries them as a line item.

If you really want them....

If you're stuck on using treasury tags and cant locate them, I'm in the Uk and happy enough to stick a handful in an envelope to you.

Levenger's Tags <--> UK Tags

The ones Levenger sold had a rubber gasket on them to snug up the papers.
Have you seen tags like that ?
Here's a LINK, courtesy of Google's Cache. The picture shows the gasket.

As one might observe from this cached page, Levenger was dumping them. A $12 item marked down to $3. Wish I had seen that. I would have jumped on them.

Here's a thought: I have to take my iMac into an Apple Store for a dying optical drive. With several near me, I chose the one in the same mall as a Levenger store. I will see if they have any left.
[UPDATE]: I called, intending to ask them to hold some for me and was told they had none. You might try calling the 800 number and see if they can dig any up for you.

63mm Tail Tags !

I have more information (Google is my very good friend !!)

The item that Levenger used to sell can be found if you Google for "63mm Tail Tags".
These differ from Treasury Tags by the addition of the rubber gasket/washer that snugs the papers up.

Lots of hits, many showing bundles of 100 selling for under 10GBP.

treasury tags

I have some from Levenger if anyone wants me to send some out... Let me know!
nay nay

You will need a punch

The Levenger punch make a hole that is 1/8 of an inch in diameter.

Teensey !

Treasury tags will work with

Treasury tags will work with a standard sized hole just fine. In fact, the 1/8" hole is almost too small.

I think...

the teeney hole was meant to let the string through but not the rubber gasket.

I would say you are right for the kind without the gasket.

BTW, I am still scratching around. Anyone know of any classy retail stationers that might either have these or have the necessary connections to UK/Europe to get them ?

Punch and brass clasps still available

ADS3480 is stock number for the punch clearance price 2.95 also have the brass clasps stock # ADS3460 also 2.95. Or look at the "Clips Cutters & Tools" category under reading tools - they are at the bottom of the page.

Levenger used to carry them,

Levenger used to carry them, but I can't find them on the site. I've never seen them for sale anywhere else in the U.S. You might have some luck at college bookstores.

I have a tin of them in a drawer somewhere, I'd be willing to mail you a few so you can try them out.

Trouser Tags

Although I can get Treasury Tags here in the UK with ease (see my other comment here) I do not like them. The metal ends encasing the string are usually sharp and either cut me as I put the tags through the holes in the paper or on one occasion nicked a cut into my trousers.

The tags themselves come is various lengths (depending on manufacturer) that I'd describe as very long and earth-circumferential. They don't bind papers tight allowing them to flop all over the place. It is not uncommon for the tags to rip through the paper and for the pages to become detached.

Not any more !!

>:D
Bwa-ha-ha-ha-haaaaa !

Treasury (aka India) Tags

I used these for the 19 years that I worked in the UK and they're excellent for grouping papers together and even better when you need to thumb through documents in the office or at a meeting - they're cheap and do the job. I'm in Canada now and we don't have them, so I'll order from the UK.
