How to Send a Letter in the Mail

There are still times when you need to mail a document.  There are document types that cannot be securely sent by email.   Patient information or mailing legal documents are required to be sent by postal mail.

Sending a letter in the mail can seem tedious but isn’t difficult once you follow these four basic steps:

1.  Decide Your Letter Structure

Most of the time you’ll need to mail a letter that fits in a standard envelope.  Remember that the cost of mailing your letter depends on the weight of your total package.

2.  Address Your Letter

To ensure that your letter makes it to the recipient, write down their mailing address in the center of your envelope.

For extra security, add your address in the return address section of your mailer.  If the address is incorrect, the Post Office can return the mail to the sender.

3.  Apply Your Postage

Standard mailers usually require a single stamp. The cost of your postage really depends on how much your letter weighs and how far it’s going. You can mail 4-5 pages of regular paper plus an envelope for the cost of one First Class stamp.  If you have any questions about postage costs and sending a letter, your local post office can help.

4.  Mail Your Letter

Mail can be dropped off at the post office, in a public mailbox, or with your local mail person.
