What is fax paper? Definition and usage

LAST UPDATE: March 5th, 2018


Fax paper is the paper used a fax machine.


Today, fax paper is usually the same as printer paper, either for a laser printer paper (most of the time) or inkjet printer paper (rarely).

Older fax machines used a roll of thermal paper (very much like today’s receipt printers). Today’s fax machines rarely use fax rolls.
