1. Make sure business stationary consists of high quality paper.

2. Provide clear contact information. Many companies make the mistake of using a bold logo that overpowers contact information which prevents contact information from easily being read.
3. Give direct contact information. This demonstrates that you care about business relationship building and want clients to connect with you without being blocked.

Most importantly, your business thank you letters, as well as business letters in general, will only be meaningful if you follow through on the ideas you communicated in your letters.
