Facsimile (Fax) Services
Facsimile (fax) services can be found everywhere in the United States - from stationery stores and copy shops to laundries. Despite the prevalence of e-mail, sometimes documents need to be faxed, especially legal documents that require signatures.

If you need to send a fax somewhere or receive a fax and do not have your own machine, the fax service will charge you a fee of up to several dollars a page. These fax services commonly insist your send, or receive, a cover page, for which they charge an extra fee.

Fax services are handy for the person who needs to send faxes only now and then. In addition to the cost of the service, however, traveling to an outside location to send a fax takes extra time. If you send faxes more than a few times a year, it may be more economical to purchase your own “no frills” fax machine.
