Finalizing the Letter. Edit and Review: Once you are finished with writing the letter, try to look for errors. Check for spellings, punctuations, grammatical errors. Don’t Staple the Letter: Use a paperclip on the top of the left corner if there are many pages. Use of staple doesn’t look nice for a business letter. Posting of the Letter: Always use clear and correct spelling for mentioning the name and address of the recipient.
Formal communication is on the wane in modern life, but there are still times when it's the only correct way to reinforce a connection or convey information. If you're applying for a job, looking for a recommendation, or expanding your network, err on the side of formality. Don't let the slightly archaic feel of a formal business letter tempt you into using flowery, outdated language.
