Why Fax Cover Sheets are Useful

Using a fax cover sheet is always a good idea, and in most cases, a necessity. Fax cover sheets help to avoid any confusion as to who the fax belongs to and how many pages are included. 

Why Do I Need a Fax Cover Sheet?

Filling out a fax cover sheet with the exact number of pages being sent will greatly reduce any question of whether all the pages were received successfully. When the recipient receives the fax, they can then count the pages to confirm they got all the intended pages. The fax cover sheet is always included when counting the fax pages, so make sure you add it. 

If the recipient of the fax is out of the office and doesn't pick up the fax, the basic information on the fax cover sheet will help it get to the appropriate person regardless. Many people will also opt to mark the fax as urgent or ask that you reply to the fax, which is also indicated on the cover sheet. 

Using an online fax service means you will always have a professional cover page. There’s no need to scribble out a fax cover sheet by hand before sending (or worry about paper getting stuck together or jammed in a fax machine).

What Should Be Included On a Fax Cover Sheet?

A fax cover sheet typically has basic contact information: who the fax is going to, who the fax is from, the subject matter, how many pages are included, company name (address is optional), a phone number, and a check box to mark whether it’s urgent or needs a reply. If there is a message or special note that needs to be included, that can be incorporated below the contact information.

Many companies have their own template-based fax cover sheets with their names and logos already printed on the page. A lot of companies also include their websites on their fax cover sheet.

Fax cover sheets save a lot of time because they tell you who the fax is intended for, who sent it, and how many pages there are included. This streamlines the faxing process by avoiding any confusion – and who doesn’t love that?
