Faxing at FLITE

Faxes can be sent from the photocopier nearest the entrance on the First Floor using your printing account. The cost to send is 50¢ per sheet for local, long-distance, and international. You can also receive faxes at 10¢ per sheet. You will need staff assistance to receive.

Directions for sending a fax:

  1. If necessary, wake up the machine. (Tap the green "Energy Saver" button located at the upper right corner of the panel.)
  2. Tap "Keyboard" on the screen.
  3. Login with your MyFSU (or non-Ferris guest account) username and password.
  4. Tap the "Use Copier" button on the display.
  5. Select "Fax" from the available options on the display.
  6. Set pages to be faxed face up in the feeder tray as indicated.
  7. Using the keyboard on the left:
    • For a local fax (Big Rapids area), dial "86" followed by the fax number
    • For a long distance fax, dial "87" followed by the area code and fax number
    • For an international fax, dial "87" + "011" + Country Code + City Code + Fax Number. (The City Code is often included as part of the fax number.)
  8. Press the green "Start" button on the lower right. Your page(s) to be faxed will be scanned and transmitted. Wait for the confirmation page to print to confirm facsimile was sent.
  9. Log out. Press the green "login/out" bottom and then tap the "logout" button on the screen display.

  1. The fax number is: (231) 591-2662. Have the sending party send the fax to this number.
  2. Retrieving the fax will require the assistance of library staff. Please ask at one of the service desks.
  3. Faxes received will be charged 10¢ per sheet against your printing account. Make sure sufficient funds are available. This charge will be made when you pick up the fax.
