Default Where do you buy?

I want to look into hanging file folders for my 12 x 12 card stock and pattern paper.
Thing is at the office suppliy store the only size they seem to carry is Letter Legal and A2 I think.
What size do you use and where do you get the folders and track for them?
I am not sure if the canadian office stores carry anything bigger then legal
Please help me figure out how to hang in file folders my 12 x 12

I just bought the coolest rolling rack from Paper Wishes, along with 12x12 hanging folders and 12x12 acid free manilla folders to go inside the hanging ones. I love it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I got the black one, it's short, only 19 inches tall so it rolls right under my table. I got all my scrapbook paper in there and I have a lot! I'm giving you the link, hope this helps!

Go to www.organizedscrapbooks.com and Cynthia Townley Ewer has directions on making your own by converting letter size hanging files.

No shipping costs if you have the time.

Smile I make my own!

I did this several years ago and they've been holding up great. I make 12 x 12 hanging files out of legal size hanging files. Take one legal file and cut the bottom open. Take another and cut the bottom open and cut off the top part (so you just have 2 pieces of folder paper). Fold one of those pieces in half and tape it to the file you cut the bottom open on. So, out of 3 legal files you can make 2 12 x 12 files. I hope that makes sense. It's really quite easy and inexpensive. PM me if you have any questions!

Archiver's sells 12x12 hanging files & the 12x12 folders to go in them. I am not sure of the brand!

Thank you for the great how to!!!
My office supply store said if I give them the make and number on the files they would try to order them for me. If I can't do that or they are too pricey I am going to make them then. Thanks ladies!
