What Stores Can I Fax From?

If you don’t have a fax machine or access to one at your workplace, you may be wondering where you can go to send important faxes. Fortunately,  there are many options beyond setting up your own fax line or machine, and these include:

Post Offices

Many post office locations provide fax services, including those of the United States Postal Service (USPS). USPS has over 31,000 post office branches across the country, so you’re likely to find one near you. 

Office Supply Stores

Office supply stores like Staples, Office Depot, OfficeMax, and local shops often offer fax services. These stores have dedicated fax machines that customers can use for a small fee. Smaller, local office supply shops near you may also have a fax machine available.

Shipping Stores

Shipping stores like UPS and FedEx provide fax services in most locations. They can be a convenient option if you need to fax something while dropping off a package or picking up a shipment. 

Their prices are usually reasonable, and many of them are open early until late at night, and some are even open 24/7. So, if you need to send a late-night or weekend fax, a shipping store is a great option.

Print and Copy Shops  

Local print shops and major chains like FedEx Office (formerly Kinkos) typically offer both self-service and full-service faxing options to accommodate varying customer needs. 


Many hotels offer business centers with fax machines that guests can use. The business center is usually located in the lobby or a common area of the hotel. 

You don’t need to be a guest at the hotel to use their fax machine. However, you will need to pay a fee to send a fax. If you’re a guest, chances are that you will not pay a fee. 


Public libraries are another place you can go to send or receive faxes. Most of them have a fax machine available for public use. Although policies vary by location, there is typically a small per-page fee to send or receive a fax at a library. 

Other Options

Some small businesses and coworking spaces offer fax services for customers and members. Stop by your local coffee shop, shared office, or small business center to see if they have a fax machine available. Some may charge a small fee per page. 

Coworking spaces are an especially convenient option if you have a membership. They are designed for freelancers and remote workers who need business amenities like printing, scanning, conference rooms, and more. Some of these places include access to a fax machine.
