Company or Personal Information

At the top of the page, type in your company or personal information. You may want to title it "From" or "Sender." This information should appear in a format similar to an address on an envelope, but be sure to also include a phone number and fax number. The company name should appear on the first line, street address on the second line, city and state on the third, phone number on the fourth, and fax number on the fifth line.

Recipient Information

Leaving a space, or drawing a line below the company information, make a space for recipient information. Since this is likely to change each time, if you are making a fax cover sheet as a template, leave blank lines where the recipient's specific information will appear. You may want to title the section "To" or "Recipient." Then, on separate lines, type either "Company" or the specific company information, "Attention:" or the name of the intended recipient, "Phone," or phone number of the recipient, and "Fax" or fax number of the recipient.


Finally, either drawing a line or leaving a space below the recipient information, include a section for details about the fax you are sending. This information should include the date, your name, the number of pages included in the fax, and your specific contact information if it is different than the information included in Step One. This is also the place to identify the fax as confidential, if necessary, or provide information about who the fax should be forwarded to. You may also want to include a line that specifies what the recipient should do if there is a problem with the fax.
