(You): What’s the cheapest way to send a *formatted* document fax online? The call is to a toll-free number, so that’s not an issue.
(Mark): Two questions – so I can better understand: 1) Can you explain what you mean by a ” formatted document fax” ? 2) Is this a document that has been created with a word processing program or alike? Thanks.
(You): yes. Basically it’s a document where I need page breaks. The first page will refer to “Exhibit A”, and Exhibit A will start on the next page. I don’t want text running together. Think PDF, or multiple PNG files. WHO
(You): ignore that WHO :) [direct gchat: firstname.lastname@example.org]
(Mark): So a PDF should be a pretty reliable way to get the format to be consistent – how it’s recieved at any particular fax machine isn’t guaranteed – but it seems like a reasonable bet.
(You): right. So what service do I use to actually send it cheap or free?
(‘Lin): Save the document as a PDF, find free fax service, fax PDF.
