The first thing that a reader should see when they look at your script is the Title Page. A Title Page is nothing special! More specifically, don't make your Title Page special in any way. Don't use graphics. Don't use colored paper. Don't put a photo of your dog or cat on the Title Page. Just put the bare necessities on there in plain old 12 point Courier.
In the center of the page:
- The script's title
- Your name
In the lower right corner:
- Your address or your agent's/manager's contact information
In the lower left corner:
- If you've registered your script with the Writers Guild, it's okay to add a line that says "Registered, WGA"
- You might also add a copyright notification like "© 1998, Me"
Here's a sample Title Page (it's not to scale):
