Beginning the Letter. Know the format: There are some business standards which need to be followed. One must use a common font to type a business letter. One must use indentation, paragraphs, margins etc. The text must be typed in black color only. Choose the Right Kind of Paper: One must print a letter in a letter sized paper. The standard size of the paper is A4.
Return address and date: (Upper right hand corner) Once upon a time, this was necessary in case the letter became separated from the envelope, but I doubt that happens much any more. Even so, this is where your reader is going to look to find your address and the date the letter was written, so it should be there. Mailing address of recipient: (Left_hand side, one line below the return address) This identifies the recipient of the letter. In office environments, letters are often removed from their envelopes and circulated; this helps the letter get back to its rightful recipient.
