“Fax, no printer” is another way of saying “facts” which is typically used when an individual is in agreement with someone. “Fax, no printer” is not a new phrase.

As of recent, it grew in popularity on TikTok  after a viral video featured creator @briaalanaa saying, “Hey yo! The person who sent you this wants you to know … fax, no printer. Copy, no translate.”
