Make the most of your fax correspondence with these fax etiquette tips:

  • Since faxes may be read by others, never fax anything you don't want the public to read.
  • When sending an unsolicited fax, keep it to one page.
  • Sending a lengthy document? Consider a method other than fax machines, such as overnight mail. You don't want to tie up the recipient's machine for a long time.
