How to Mail a Letter

Welcome to, Now we will discuss about How to Mail a Letter. Even today, increasingly in the world of text messaging and instant communication, there are still plenty of reasons to send a traditional letter every time.

Thankfully, the entire process is incredibly simple and straightforward, meaning that you can focus most of your attention only on the paper content.

Method: 1 letter ready for mail

1- Choose an envelope: It is important to find the right envelope for your letter. If you choose a very light construction envelope.

For example, any heavy material may break through the envelope while it is in transit. Keep the following points in mind while choosing the envelope:

  • Paper weight: The weight of the envelope should be appropriate for the weight of the paper and any other material you mail. If your letter is written on heavy card stock, or you are incorporating something else as a photo, choose a strong envelope that can handle the weight attached.
  • Envelope Size: The size of the envelope must be appropriate to the size of the material inside. Letters written on 80*11 inch paper are usually changed to thirds and mailed in business-size envelopes. Letters written on note cards can be mailed in small envelopes.
  • Letter Intent: If you are mailing a cover letter, you will want to choose a professional-looking, business-size envelope. If you wish, a personal note can be sent in a colorful, decorative envelope.
  • Letter destination: If you are sending a letter abroad, you may want to use a strong envelope, as it is more likely that it may be damaged along the way.

2- Attach the letter and seal the envelope: Once you have selected the envelope for your letter, place the letter inside and lick the edge of the envelope to moisten the glue, then seal the letter. Press it.

If you don’t want to lick it, you can wet the sponge with some water to moisten the envelope glue. If you can open the letter on your journey, fear that a small amount of clear tape is placed on the edge of the seal.

3- Address of the envelope: Write the recipient’s address in the middle of the front of the envelope. Include the recipient’s name, apartment or house number, street name, city, state or province, and zip or postal code.

If you know this, use a nine or eleven digit zip code. If you wish, you can use a two-letter postal code for the state. Use clear, printed, upper-case letters written in dark ink so that any postal worker can read your writing quickly and accurately.

  • If you are writing to someone outside your country, make sure you include the country name in upper letters at the bottom of the address.
  • Some people have mail sent to the post office box instead of the street address. If this is the case for your recipient, then write the correct post office box number after the city, state and country, if applicable.
  • Write each part of the address in a separate line to make it more legible.

4- Write your return address: Write your name and address in the upper-left corner of the envelope. For ease of postal handling, it is better to write your return address on the front of the envelope rather than the back.

You can also use the printed return-address label. Including your address will ensure that the letter is returned to you if for some reason it does not make it to the recipient.

Method 2 – Finding the Correct Match

  • Stamps come with either standard or special designs. If you want to buy a decorative or commemorative stamp, go to a post office and ask to see their selection.
  • Tickets increase from time to time. If you have old tickets, check to make sure that the tickets you have will still cover the full cost of first class postage. You may have to use more than one postage stamp.

2- Buy additional mail: Letters that are heavy or oversize and letters that are being sent overseas require additional mail to reach their destination. displays all current postage rates.

If you have an accurate postage scale at home, you can measure your letter and determine how much postage you will have to pay. Record the measurements, then check for rates. Move the appropriate mail to the upper-right corner of your letter.

If you do not have a scale, take your letter to a post office that weighs it. The clerk will be able to calculate how much postage you will need.

Every blue collection box has a notice that tells when the mail is picked up every day. If you keep your letter in the box after the scheduled lay-up time, your letter will be picked up on the next business day.
