  5. 5. FULL BLOCK STYLE  Full block style is a letter format in which all text is justified to the left margin.  In block letter style, standard punctuation is placed after salutations and in other headings.
  6. 6. EXAMPLE
  7. 7. MODIFIED BLOCK STYLE  A modified block business letter is a letter that uses a format that is slightly different from the full block letter.  The return address, date, complimentary closing and the signature line are put slightly to the right of the paper's centre.
  8. 8. EXAMPLE
  9. 9. SEMI BLOCK STYLE  This letter style places the date line in alignment with, or slightly to the right of dead center.  Similar to full block, semi-block places the inside address, salutation and any end notations flush with the left margin.  The complimentary close and signature block are aligned under the date.
  10. 10. EXAMPLE
  11. 11. INDENTED STYLE  Indented style is somewhat more complicated than other popular styles of business writing.  In indented style, new paragraphs in a piece of writing are indented.  Other parts of a business letter are moved farther to the right half of the page.
  12. 12. EXAMPLE
  13. 13. SIMPLIFIED STYLE  This is another modification of the fully-blocked style. This style is used when you write a letter and you do not know the name and title of the person to whom you are writing the letter.  The salutation and the complimentary closing are used in this style.  The subject is mentioned din capital fonts and that subject need not be underlined.
  14. 14. EXAMPLE
  15. 15. HANGING INDENTED STYLE  This style is very rarely used. The first line of the paragraph begins at the left-hand margin. And the other lines of the same paragraph are indented three to four spaces.  This is the reversal of semi-indented style discussed in other page.
