A business letter is a professional piece of correspondence. If you are writing a cover letter, letter of recommendation, or thank you note, you will need to follow the formal conventions of a business letter. Following these guidelines is important. It sets the tone that you are taking the correspondence seriously and ensures that the letter recipient can focus on your message (and not formatting inconsistencies, typos, or any other small errors).
Appearances matter! A business letter is a professional piece of correspondence, but it wont be perceived that way if you opt for a wacky font or have lots of typos. Choose an appropriate font and font size. Avoid casual language or slang. Prevent typos and grammatical errors by proofreading carefully. If you are printing out the letter, consider choosing high-quality paper. Whatever paper you choose, fold the letter carefully before placing it in the envelope. If you can, type the recipient address on the envelope; if thats not possible, use your neatest handwriting.
Before you write — or finalize — your next business letter, take some time to review how to format the letter, from font choice to style, along with which salutations and sign-offs are appropriate to use.
