Take the trusty red kangaroo to school with you!

For 40 years Flip File has been the perfect starter pocket display book

Children who grew up with Flip File fantasised about becoming fire fighters, astronauts, princesses and even dinosaurs. Their cherished first drawings depicted worlds only possible in epic novels and poetry. These carefree dreams were captured in their very first Flip File where some remain protected to this day. From this very young age, children were encouraged to dream big and our job then, like it is now, was to ensure that these dreams were never lost or forgotten.

Your first school project wont be complete without the Red Kangaroo

The transition from care free toddler days to the first day of big school was a daunting experience. Although their imaginations could never be stifled, their developing minds made room for new learning experiences. With a Flip File worksheets and pencils in hand, they learned the foundations of reading, writing, and basic sums to prepare them for their next stage of life.

Flip File makes getting good marks so much easier

As they grew, so did their responsibilities. Their carefree childhood and simple ABC’s were a thing of the past. Now they were faced with the workings of linear equations, Newton’s Laws and periodic tables, while navigating the ups and downs of being a teenager. Keeping their work organised and managing time was vital to help them reach their full potential on their journey through high school to university.

The transition from school life to university came with its own unique challenges. Teachers and coaches no longer had a helping hand in managing their time and responsibilities. However, Flip File was still by their side creating a database of all the vital information needed to graduate with flying colours.

Flip File in the office – the obvious choice

While the degrees were safely stowed away in a Flip File, their proud owners worked on their careers as doctors, project managers, CEO’s, accountants and entrepreneurs. Even then they trusted in the pocket sleeve to take care of their CVs, proposals, minutes, invoices, prescriptions, legal documents and product displays.

Flip File for life!

Today, those who’ve grown up with Flip File are highly accomplished careerists, parents and outstanding citizens. They continue to express themselves through art, cooking and music, while managing their personal and work lives with the help of their childhood companion – Flip File.

Where
we're going


With our humble beginnings stretching back to 1970, Flip File has grown into one of South Africa’s leading product brands.

At Flip File, we pride ourselves on delivering product and service excellence. Our reputation for total quality keeps us striving to develop reliable products that complement our customers in both their work and home spaces.

The precision and thought that went into the production of the first Flip File 40 years ago is still mind-set we share today. We strive to keep abreast of technological and material development while constantly improving and enhancing products that live up to our quality promise.

Today, Flip File continues to grow and set itself apart from any other brand. We have become more than just a filing sleeve, we have become a lifetime companion. Keeping true to our ethos we aim to continuously inspire those who put trust in who we are.

“Quality is never an accident. It is always the result of intelligent effort”

John Ruskin

Flip File’s journey started more than 40 years ago when it was handcrafted for the first time in Cape Town, South Africa.

It all began with a need to protect and safely stow away a young child’s artwork for years to come. And so, a determined father created a reliable plastic pocket book to ensure his child’s creations would be preserved in time. This idea grew into a filing sleeve company called Slideasy which dominated the filing pocket market in South Africa due to its uniqueness.

Plastic was not recycled in the late 70’s, which lead to a build-up of reject filing sleeves in the Slideasy factory. These rejects, instead of being discarded, were later reworked into Flip Files. Once a substitute for expensive and inflexible PVC display books, Flip Files became recognised as an innovative game changer.

Soon, Flip File would make its way into almost every home, accompanying children on their journey through school and the working world. Its appeal was in its foundation of versatility and resilience that was able to safeguard everything that was considered precious.


Using only the finest quality polyethylene, in a triple layer blend, gives our Flip Files the strength and durability they have become renowned for.

What sets Flip File apart is the fact that each product is handmade by our skilled operators. From beginning to end in the manufacturing process, each product moves through five sets of hands to ensure quality.  A unique quality control slip can be found in each Flip File, giving you, the consumer, our promise of excellence.

At Flip File, our people and the environment are at the heart of our business.  It is our aim to preserve the environment by creating a top-class, recyclable product through methods that have a minimal impact on the environmental.

Flip Files are made using polyethylene, a fully recyclable plastic. In our manufacturing process we separate our plastic and board waste cuts, which we then send for recycling.


Five years ago we decided to expand our range of filing products and now import a wide range of products suitable for the office environment.  We intend to continue expanding and become your one stop destination for filing, presenting and portable paper protection.
