How to correctly number the pages of a document when filing?

  • We put Arabic numbers on the sheets
  • For this we use a simple pencil
  • Put the numbers in ascending order
  • We number sheets, not pages (documents can have their own numbering)
  • Place the page number in the upper right corner, without touching the text of the document.
  • Applications are numbered in general order
  • We number the letters as follows: put the number on the envelope, and only after that we number the sheets contained in the letter
  • Several volumes of documents are numbered separately
  • Applications allocated to a separate volume are also numbered separately
  • If the documents are drawn up on a large-format sheet, then put the number in the upper right corner, fold it and file it under one edge
  • For the individual fragments indicated in the document (for example, checks), we draw up an inventory, and number this document in general order.

What thread should I use to stitch documents?

  • If you don’t take the filing of documentation seriously, then the papers prepared for delivery may simply be returned to you with the requirement to completely redo the firmware. Therefore, it is advisable to familiarize yourself with the rules of stitching and the basic requirements before serious errors are made in the firmware of documents.
  • Another option to solve the problem is to turn to professionals. If you don’t have time to study the issue of firmware documentation, then you can entrust this to the specialists of a printing company. It will take 10-30 minutes to stitch documents with a plastic or metal spring with a cover.
  • But there is a certain risk in entrusting your documents to a third party: the papers may contain trade secrets.
  • Therefore, you should carefully read the instructions once on how to stitch documentation of various formats using regular threads or a stapler.

  • The documentation is sewn together with bank twine, thin Mylar tape or stitching threads. But if there are no such threads, then ordinary harsh threads will do.
  • 2-3 sheets are sewn together with regular thread. It needs to be folded in half for strength. The stitching process begins with holes being made in the sheets. The stitching is done from the back side of the sheets assembled together.
  • The needle is inserted into the middle hole first. It is better to use dual firmware. When the stitching is completed, the needle and thread are inserted into the central hole and brought out to the back of the assembled documents. The remaining end of the thread must be tied in a knot.

Preparing a document

Bound documents are certified

Stage 1:

  • We arrange the papers as they should be located in the document. We number each page with numbers in the upper right corner. For this we use a simple pencil.
  • We make punctures. If our document is made up of several sheets, then a puncture can be easily made with a needle and thread. We pierce a multi-page document with an awl or use a sharp nail. To facilitate the process of piercing the paper, take a hammer.
  • How many holes should I make? This depends on the requirements of the organization that is requesting the documents. The punctures should be evenly spaced along the left margin. Holes are made in the middle of the sheet, the distance between them is 3 cm.

  • Five holes are made for particularly important documents. This is the most reliable way to protect papers from substitution.
  • We certify the document: prepare a piece of paper measuring 4 by 5-6 cm. We indicate on it the number of sheets stitched in numbers and in words. We add here the position, surname, first name and patronymic of the person who certifies the documents.

  • Apply glue and place this sheet on the place where the knot is located and the threads meet. We take the short ends of the threads beyond the leaf so that they hang freely. The document certifier signs. If there is a stamp or it is necessary on the document, then we put a stamp. Here you should not just sign or put a seal, but do it in such a way that part of the signature and seal extends beyond the border of the pasted sheet.

Rules for stapling GOST documents

  • If you need to staple office papers on several sheets, then first of all you need to familiarize yourself with the regulations. Of course, the first thing that comes to mind is glue or a stapler. Multi-page documents cannot be pasted. But how do you sew them together? After all, incorrect firmware can result, at a minimum, in a refusal to register an authority requiring you to provide a package of documents.
  • What to do if there is no set of rules and samples, and it is impossible to stitch papers as it turns out, and not as it should be. Despite the fact that there are no clear instructions regarding the binding of documentation, it is necessary to focus on the specific requirements of the authority that requests information in the form of a bound package of documents.
  • It will also be useful to familiarize yourself with the general recommendations for flashing documents that consist of more than one sheet. They are collected in a brochure or guidelines for 2009. There is also a brochure for 2004. It is more suitable for registering LLC documentation.

  • It is customary to stitch a package of documents with a needle and thread. This allows you to maintain their integrity: in this type of paper it will be difficult to replace, which is very important today.
  • Sometimes it is allowed to use a stapler to staple documents. The ideal option is to use special equipment.
  • Accountants of many organizations are switching to working with accounting programs. They do not need to be duplicated on paper. There is online accounting for this. Electronic documents signed with a digital signature have the same legal significance as paper documents (for example, invoices).
  • But, despite the ease of working with documentation in digital format, we will have to deal with the usual paper documentation for a long time, and the preparation of some documents is required now.

Office documentation has different meanings. Documents differ in the thickness of the file and the shape of the sheets. That is why there are several ways to flash documentation.

    We insert the needle through the middle puncture on the back side of the sheets gathered together, leaving a piece of thread more than 7 cm.
  • We bring the needle to the front side through the hole located at the top. We pull the needle and thread through the bottom hole on the back side.
  • We pass a needle through the front side into the middle puncture. Now the thread can be cut, leaving a length of at least 7 cm.
  • We have two remaining threads: in the upper hole and in the middle. Let’s connect them together.

Stitch or staple?

Until now, many employers do not know how to correctly file notification forms for the conclusion or termination of contracts. Today we will analyze this topic point by point so that no one else has any questions.

The most important thing I would like to draw your attention to is that notification forms cannot be fastened together (with paper clips), they must be sewn together (with thread)!

How to do it correctly:

You need to staple documents if you have two or more sheets.

For example, if you have a notification form on three sheets.

  1. The sheets are fastened with threads in the center from the left edge;
  2. On the back side of the last sheet, in the place where the sheet is stitched, a small white sheet is glued over the threads. This is done so that the sheet cannot be replaced or removed;
  3. On top of the pasted sheet is written: “Sewn and numbered (number) of pages.” The number of pages is written in both words and numbers. The CEO’s signature is not required.
  4. A stamp is placed on top of the pasted sheet.

You must staple the document so that the inspector has no doubt that additional sheets can be added to the document if desired.

If you doubt whether you have correctly filed the notice sheets on the conclusion or termination of contracts, then contact our specialists for help.

They will help you:

  • fill out notifications in accordance with the law;
  • sew sheets;
  • will promptly submit notifications to the Ministry of Internal Affairs.
