I found a stash of these label holders in the supply closet at a former job - no one was using them, so I decided to put them to better use.

You'll use a plastic cover found in each holder as a
template to trace your photo.  Simply cut and insert
the photo into the holder, behind the re-inserted
plastic cover. 

You'll use the "spring lock" to either
hang the photo from wire or you can pull the spring
lock back to create "legs" for it sit on a table or
desk.

So cool!  I wonder where these could be found?  I know they have a few in my lab, but they actually still use them on binders, so I don't think they'd be willing to part with them....

I did a little research to find more of these labelholders...and what do you know they're still being sold at www.labelholder.com - they're a little pricey for what they are.  I thought it was an old school way to label binders, but I guess people are still using them in the traditional way.
