Personal Announcement Letters

Send a personal announcement letter when you have some key personal information to communicate to people such as family members and friends. As is the case with all letters, the style and wording you use in a letter depends on the specific circumstances.

Use appropriate tone in your letters, depending on your audience. You can typically use a more informal style in personal announcement letters. It is generally best to keep letters as short and concise as possible while still communicating the necessary information.

Feel free to customize and modify any of these letters according to your individual needs. In sensitive situations, such as when announcing a divorce or other bad news, carefully choose wording and style. In such instances, diplomacy is critical.

NOTE: In all letters, brackets indicate information that you should fill in. Remove the brackets when you have modified the text to your liking.
