General tips:

  • Start typing about one inch below the log.
  • Do not drop font below 12 point unless you know your audience has 20/20 vision or better.
  • Generally, serif fonts are for “readability,” while sans-serif fonts are for “legibility.” Which is why, in print, sans-serif fonts are often used as the headline font and serif fonts are used for the body text.
  • Generally, the University uses the Garamond font for the serif font and Helvetica for the sans-serif font.
  • First line should be date then hit return four times and type name and address of recipient.
  • Use a colon after “Dear XXXXXX:”.
  • Use a comma after your closing “Sincerely,” or “Best regards,”.
  • After closing, hit return four times and type your name and/or title this should mirror the four returns above in the third bullet.
  • If you need the document to fit on one page, consider editing instead of decreasing margins and decreasing font.
