For uploaded or mailed cover letters, you do not need to include as much information as you would in an email message, because the heading of your cover letter includes your contact information. For a paper cover letter, use a formal business_style letter format which includes a heading, salutation, the body of the letter, closing, and your signature. Review these guidelines for what to include in your letter.
Font Size: The traditional font size for a professional letter is 12. The font should be Times New Roman or Arial. However, if you are using letterhead, the letterhead may be in different font size and style. Font Style: There is no need to use different styles within a professional letter. Use a uniform font (book print font such as Times New Roman or Arial) and avoid underlining, italicizing, or bolding. However, if you are using letterhead, the letterhead may be in a different font style.
