Index Cards

Index cards are cards for recording data. Few desk items boost your efficiency more than a well maintained and accessible contacts list. Our wide range of index card systems and refill index cards will make sure that your important phone numbers, contacts and sources are always at your fingertips. Index card boxes come in a variety of styles and colours and can be filled with your choice of card suitable to your purpose. You’ll also find that champion of card holders, the Rolodex Rotary – let your fingers do the walking!

An index card is card cut to a standard size used for recording individual items of information that can then be easily filed and rearranged. They were first used widely in the indexing- and taxonomy-mad Age of Victoria. Before the ubiquity of computer cataloguing, libraries indexed their collections with index cards.
