Folding invoices and correspondence can be a frustrating task for even the most professional office worker. It's time-consuming, tedious, and just not very fun. If you have ever wondered if there's a machine that can help you with this most thankless of tasks, you're in luck because German-based manufacturer Dahle has two letter folders that can help you out. This article will take a look at these folders so you can decide if one of them is right for you and your workplace.
The first Dahle letter folder is the 10540. This is a personal-sized letter folder that is small and lightweight so it won't take up a lot of room on a desk. (It only weighs about nine pounds, so transporting it won't be a problem at all.) The 10540 can fold five sheets of paper at once, including documents that have already been stapled. The machine is very quiet so it won't disturb your workplace and it produces a variety of folds, including the classic letter fold. The 10540 is also really easy to use. All you need to do it turn it on and insert your document and it will be folded immediately. This unit retails for $299.00, so it's affordable for just about any company. Plus, it's cheaper than hiring a temp to fold your invoices, correspondence, and fliers. That means your star employees can spend their time doing something more productive. So, if you use the 10540, you'll be able to save both time and money.
While the 10540 is good for general, everyday office use, you might need something that's a bit more powerful. If so, the the Dahle 10560 letter folder might fit the bill. This machine is great for high-volume mailing because it can fold approximately 4,000 sheets of regular 20 lb. paper in one hour. Like the 10540, the 10560 can fold stapled documents that consist of five pages or less. It can also produce four different types of folds. The 10560 can hold up to 50 sheets in the attached paper tray to keep them on hand for instant folding, and it comes with a desk stand and paper catch so your documents won't fly all over the place after they have been folded. Best of all, the 10560 operates quietly, so your employees won't be distracted by a machine whirring away. Finally, 10560 retails for $599.00, so while it's more expensive than the 10540, its increased folding speed might just be worth the extra cash, especially if you fold a lot of documents on a regular basis.
As for which letter folder you should choose, it is really up to you. The 10540 is obviously the cheaper unit, so if money is a concern, this might be the machine to get. However, you should also consider how much folding you do and how much time you or your employees spend doing it. If you do a lot of folding the 10560 would probably be the better option, even though it costs more money.
Folding your documents has never been a fun task, but having a Dahle letter folder on hand can help make the job get done faster. If you're in the market for a letter folder, you really should consider looking at these great products by Dahle.
