Folding The Letter

Basics of Business Letters


The basic rule for folding the letter is to make as few folds as possible. A much-used method is to fold the letter twice along its breadth, the folds being approximately one-third of the length from the top and bottom edges.

This method use only two folds and the folded letter can easily be slipped into a 9" x 4" envelope. The method also has the advantage of allowing the sender to put a cheque or other enclosure within the folded letter. The recipient will always find the enclosures first on opening the envelope. This will ensure that the recipient gets the enclosures. Otherwise, he may miss them or unwittingly throw them away.
