2. Style Choices and the Header for Formal Letters

Formal letters require restraint on the style choices of the person drafting the composition. Microsoft Word and other software programs will allow you to choose the font and size of your print. Formal letters should always use the Calibri or Times New Roman fonts. The size should be between 10 and 12, and should never be in bold, italicized, or crowded with unnecessary clip art or spacing. This rule stands for emailed formal letters too.
