Meet my new office assistant,

HelloFax.comI never actually realized how much I relied on my print-scan- fax trifecta of printer features until the thing bit the dust a few months ago. Since then, I’ve been begging neighbors to scan docs for me, and hitting the local office stores to fax. Hello, pricey. Well now I’ve found an online service that does it all for you and I could not be more excited about it.

I’m so thrilled to introduce you to, which my wallet and I are completely in love with. To get started, decide which plan works for you, choose a fax number of your very own, and then upload your documents. You can either fax them to an actual phone number or right to an email address.

Once the documents have been loaded, you can finish filling them out and sign them before sending off, or add a cover page if you’d like.

The free plan gives you unlimited emails and five fax pages total before you’re charged per faxed page. However, the monthly plans, which start at $4.99, are offered with a 30-day no risk trial. Good deal.

Given how much I’ve already used it, is actually saving me money. Not to mention the hassle, the printer ink, and all that paper. -Kristen

Added 10/9/12: You can now sign any document directly from Google Drive using HelloSign. Head over to HelloFax for more details.

    Great to know about this! I have an Epson WorkForce printer and I’ve been able to use scan mode and email the scans to people, but if they want an actual fax copy, I drive to FedEx Kinko’s. Thanks for the tip!
