An Easy to Remember, Professional Looking Letter Written in Notepad

Sometimes you need to write a letter, print it out and mail it. Not often, but sometimes you do. I was using Letterly.com but it stopped working for me and I needed to write a letter. So, I popped open Notepad and put the same components (to, from, opening, body, closing) vertically on the page. What results is a clear, concise, professional looking letter that can be written in Notepad, printed on whatever plain or letterhead paper you want, and looks as good as Word templates or other fancy online letter writers.

I had to contact my political representative some weeks ago. It should be obvious but anyone respects a physical, written letter more than an email any day of the week. It means the person put some time and effort into their communication. So that’s what I sent. Or, a few weeks ago, FedEx was wasting my time so I decided to waste their time writing a letter that would take a few days to arrive, and use up real time for a real employee to read and process and respond to. I needed a letter.

So, here’s the template (don’t be surprised, I said it was easy):

John Doe
123 Any Street
City, Province Postal Code
Country
Jane Q. Public
456 Any Street
City, Province, Postal Code
Country
