the delightful moments with stationery
The file you simply slip a document in and close. eTezigf by King Jim @367JPyen


A file, as we know it, firmly binds using a stapler or holes made by a hole punch.
But now there is the Tezig, an excellent product that files firmly without any need to do anything extra at all.

First of all, what excited me was the simple design.


The vivid colours remind me of Lego blocks and really catch the eye. Then - and this I think is most unusual for a Japanese stationery manufacturer ? there is no company name or logo on the cover.
While in general, the name of the company is so big you wonder if they could have made it any larger, in the case of the Tezig, there is only a quiet eKing Jimf on a corner of the back cover. This, in particular, makes the vividly coloured, simple outward appearance really stand out.


As the manufacturer, they must have wanted to put the companyfs name on the cover. They have endured enormous restraint for us. For having such guts I feel I want to give them a sincere round of applause.

In size, the Tezig is slightly larger than A4 and about 9mm thick, so, overall it is styled like a flat box.


If this was just a file box, Ifm sure, I too, wouldnft have taken it up.

But this Tezig is equipped with unique features that have never been available.

Therefore, lets attend to a step-by-step explanation of how to use the file.
First of all, how to open this file.
On the right side of the cover is a locked section.
Place your fingers here and, just like opening a clasp fastener on a purse; twist. As you do this, esnapf and this lock will open.


But, this alone will not open the file.

On both sides there is a fairly strong lock. By snapping these unlocked, the file can be expanded.


If you just consider opening and closing the file, three locks probably does seem a bit too much, but, the reason for these will be understood later.

When you open the file and look inside it should be said that something wonderful will appear; but thatfs not the case. Without even a single mechanism, the inside of a very ordinary file shows its face. @@


However, what is differerent is the way the folder looks when it is expanded. It does not completely spread-out and fully open. A back spine section remains fixed closed and the cover appears to break open.


Along the inside of the back spine is a very well made gap. The documents are put in the gap and filing is complete.


So whatfs the big deal? You might be thinking, that itfs just the same method as sticking paper in a so called eManilla Folderf.

However, there is a difference.

@ In a section of the back spine, gPUSHh, is written. Push down there with your finger.


Having said that, the idea is not to actually push down; already you are in the position of having your finger on the point of the spine so only a little pressure is needed.

Then it is as if all the documents inserted in the file are quickly bound into a condition just like a real book, and, one-by-one, each page can be turned over.


So, it is for this reason that, in the product namegTezigh, it has the description, gBind by Handh.

Without making holes in the paper or using staples, it is possible to throw the documents in, secure them and even read through them. Furthermore, because only finger pressure is required, by using only light pressure the documents can be inserted and removed freely.

When you have finished reading, close the file, snap the previously mentioned locks closed and, even if the file is positioned upside-down, the documents inside will not fall.
Deliberately placing locks in three separate places was probably done strictly for this reason.

So, in what scenes is it possible to utilise the Tezig?

@Firstly and above all, the ease of removing, inserting and reading documents is excellent, so it is most appropriate to use it for the organisation of material when documents are actively being inserted and removed for a project presently in progress.

Also, it is possible to use it when making a project prospectus with many pages.
Because the replacement - to say nothing of the addition - of pages is made so easy, a manuscript can be continuously inserted into a Tezig. Then, when flicking through the pages, it is easy to catch the overall concept.

And whatfs more, it can even be used instead of a small briefcase.
As the Tezig can store up to about 70 pages of normal copy paper, documents can be bundled up and put inside, which makes it good to use when attending a meeting.


And, by the way, if not too thick, a few documents and notebooks can be put in it too.

It is quite cool to walk around carrying this colourful Tezig itself.

Afterwards, because the Tezig is made of sturdy plastic, it has the strength to stand on a bookshelf and due to its box shape, whether it is vertical or horizontal the documents inside wonft fall out.


Having made a file, you definitely need to put the projectfs name on it.

On the cover, it is possible to record the title and date.

According to the manufacturerfs instructions, the stick-on labels made using the King JimeTepraf label writing machine are good to use.
@Theyfre certainly not bad at promoting their business.

In order to find my files at a glance I tried sticking on my own logo sticker.


This ebinding by handf, really is a simple concept for filing. Punching holes and inserting file rings are bothersome tasks so documents carelessly left, without being filed, rapidly pile up. But now as it is only necessary to tap the documents into this file, it may well be the Saviour of document organisation.
Smart work! The king of clerical work (clerical work is called ejimuf in Japanese) is reconfirmed as King Jim!
