Chapter 18. Writing guidelines > Informal letters

Informal letters

You’ll likely need to send informal letters to co-workers, supervisors, vendors, or customers. The most common informal letters include thank you notes, notes of sympathy, invitations, and congratulatory notes.

An important guideline to follow when sending informal letters is to send them at the appropriate time. Thank you notes should be sent within 24 hours of the event or act. Invitations should provide sufficient time for people to make arrangements to attend an event. Notes of congratulation or sympathy should be sent soon after the events that prompted either type of note.
