Communication has greatly evolved throughout the years and even large documents can reach any destination in just several seconds. Specially created for office environments, FAX machines allow interlocutors to exchange info which is directly printed out on a sheet of paper. Templates can be used for a personal touch, with applications like Star Fax Cover Sheet Creator letting you create such forms you simply forward along with the desired message.

Not to be confused with a virtual printer, the application does not depend on any output device connected to your computer. On the other hand, for a quick result, you have access to the print function, as well as the possibility to send via email.

Running the application for the first time suggests that you take a little time in order to get initial settings configured, which takes roughly around a minute or two. This only requires you to input company data, such as name, address and contact details so that they are automatically placed in corresponding fields in the final form.

The main window is equipped with all you need to further prepare the cover sheet, such as a text field to insert your messages, several priority options, recipient details and output controls. Moreover, the application also lets you configure a contacts list as well as one for business partners so details are easily inserted in forms.

In terms of customizing forms themselves, there's something more to be desired. You can only choose from a handful of presets, and it would have been nice to see at least an option to edit text font and color.

To sum it up, Star Fax Cover Sheet Creator is not the best when it comes to cover design applications, especially because of the shallow set of features it comes equipped with. You cannot establish a connection with a FAX machine, nor connect to a local network, with export options being reduced to printers.
