Individual sheets, folders, magazines or catalogues are collected upright in a magazine file. All these things would be stacked horizontally on top of each other without the magazine file. Finding and removing documents from such a stack would be much less convenient than finding and removing parts from a magazine file. Lined up on the shelf, magazine files look like a row of folders. The back of files often also have a grip hole at the bottom and a label that provides information about the contents. Mag files are often used to organise magazines. For this reason, we often call them magazine files. Magazine racks are available in many materials. When made of plastic, they can be designed to be as flexible as they are stable. There are almost no limits to the imagination when it comes to colour. Transparent magazine racks allow the contents to be grasped directly, muted colours hide the contents and only the label provides information about the contents.
