The Business Letter Printed

It is important for business letters to be easy to read, error-free, and completely professional.  The first impression when the intended recipient receives a business letter establishes their attitude and becomes a part of their evaluation of the letter.  

Most business letters today are written on word-processing software and printed using  letter-quality printers.  Although you should use your spell-check tool if available, you must always proofread your letters carefully.  It's a good practice to have someone other than the writer proofread important letters.
