Faxing

University Departments

The following are tips related to faxing:

  • All faxes should have a cover sheet to assist in directing the fax to the proper person when received and to provide contact numbers to the receiver.
  • Use the best quality original to fax from.
  • Fax only black/white copies. Color images and text does not fax well and will provide a poor quality copy to the receiver.
  • Use on white paper for the original. Colored, parchment, or specialty paper does not reproduce a good quality copy when faxed.
  • Include page numbers when sending multiple page faxes.
