Keep the cover simple. Use card stock—plain, and not loud. The screenplay's cover is not a place to market, if you want to look like a professional. Include the title (underlined), who wrote it (“by”, “written by”, “an original script by”, etc.), and your phone number (or your agent's). As with your script's content, use Courier New, 12-point. Be sure to add (or delete) any information specified by your recipient's Submission Guidelines.
