Full Answer

  1. Write your closing

    Choose and write your ending salutation followed by a comma. "Sincerely, " "Yours truly" and "Respectfully yours" are all appropriate.

  2. Type and sign your name

    After inserting the comma, press Enter four times to create a space, then type your name. Sign your name in the space you created beneath the ending salutation and above your typed name.

  3. List your title below your name

    If you have a job title, list your title below your printed name. If not, leave the document as-is.
