Fax templates are freely available from websites such as FreeFaxCoverSheets.net and FaxTemplates.net. These pages provide various options for facsimile cover sheets, message sheets and memo sheets in a variety of styles.
The FreeFaxCoverSheets.net website, for example, provides categories of fax cover and memo sheets for different situations, including business, holiday, and themed templates involving nature or animals, among other categories. The website makes the templates available in PDF or DOC file formats. These templates can either be viewed or downloaded, depending on the browser used.
FaxTemplates.net offers templates in a variety of styles, such as contemporary, formal and simple. Cover sheets marked as confidential and private alert a recipient to sensitive information being received. The website offers three categories of templates: business forms, informal templates and personal fax formats. The site offers documents in the PDF and DOC file formats for download or viewing.
When sending a fax, it is generally accepted practice to include a cover sheet that outlines standard information, such as who the fax is for, who it is from, what the receiving fax number is, how many pages the document is, what the date is, what the fax is about, and who is receiving carbon copies of the fax. Additionally, fax templates general provide a means to mark if a fax is urgent or requires review, comment or reply.
