Free Tips & Easy "How to" Instructions
Closing an e-mail or a letter is easy enough. There are classic sign offs, for both business and casual correspondence, but there are also more original ways to close an e-mail or a letter.
The ultimate classic closings are, for the most part, exceptionally polite, and in some cases, exceptionally overdone. Nowadays you don't want to end an e-mail with "Yours truly" or even "Yours" unless you feel exceptionally affectionate towards the recipient.
I remain yours truly,
Obviously, don't write "Thanks" or "Thank you" unless you are actually thanking them for something. By the way, did you know that "Cheers" simply means "Thank you" in some parts of the world?
All closings using "regards" sound rather dry, and are therefor suitable for business communications. The classics are..
Kind (or kindest) regards,
Warm (or warmest) regards,
However, you can pep up the dry regards as well! Why not use one of these:
Dare to be original, even when writing professional letters or e-mails. It is possible to be polite and interesting at the same time.
Enough for now,
Live long and prosper,
May the force be with you,
Talk to you soon!
Leave them with a happy wish. Now, for the sake of originality, replace the word "great" with any of the many synonyms for "great", or "happy" and you have a whole collection of closings you can use. Here are a few examples:
Have an awesome day!
Have a victorious day!
Have a blissful day!
Have a marvelous day!
Of course it could also be something as simple as the following.
Enjoy your day!
