Generating PDFs

Best for sending

PDF (Portable Document Format) files are the best format for sending faxes using our service. The purpose behind a PDF is to generate a file from any application that will look and print the same on any computer, or operating system, even if that application is not installed. It basically makes things easier and more reliable.

Generating PDFs from applications normally involves installing a virtual 'printer'. When you print your document to the PDF printer, you get a file instead of a printout.
