Free Cover Sheet Templates for Faxing

No, faxes aren't obsolete. Email may have taken over much of the business correspondence, but many businesses and organizations still use faxes. When you need to fax documents, add a nice cover sheet to make sure your document gets to the right person. Put information about who is sending the fax, who it goes to, and the number of pages in the fax including the cover sheet. Include contact information for the sender in case the recipient needs to follow up on the fax. The templates from the websites listed here can help you format the necessary information and lend an air of gravitas, urgency or fun to your facsimile transmission.

Sites marked as "Collection" offer five or more templates—sometimes dozens. Others have just one or two templates. There are lots of styles, mostly in PDF and Word formats. Each site offers free templates but a few also offer formats for a fee.
