[SUBJECT]

The main characteristic of full block business letters is that everything (except maybe a preprinted letterhead) is flush with the left margin.  Full block letters are a little more formal than modified block letters.

If your letter is only one page, type the complimentary close and optional components as shown below.  Otherwise, type them on the last page of your letter.  (See page 2 after you download this letter, or click on the appropriate link in the menu below.)

Sincerely,
