The paper you write your letter on can help to tell a story or set the mood of your letter.

Remember that your paper must fit into the correct-sized envelope, so that your letter can be delivered quickly and cheaply. A small envelope should be no larger than 240mm in width and130mm in height.

When your letter is ready to post, make sure it is not too thick and not too heavy.

Never put any little surprises (such as pieces of plastic or metal, sharp objects, or glass items) in the envelope with your letter. They could make a mess, or even worse, could break and be dangerous to someone.
