Re: Multiple Signatures in Business Letter: Formatting
On Wednesday, April 19, 2006, Keith Hansen wrote:We have a business letter with multiple signatures at the end (three
people signing it, including their names, titles, and signatures). How should the signatures be aligned:
My HOW5 (Handbook of Office Workers, Version 5 -- they're probably up to Version 50 by now ;), failed me in this regard <gasp!>, but my US Government Printing Office Style Manual has multiple signatures listed vertically.
And that's certainly appropriate in a situation where the signatories have a hierarchical relationship to each other. But where they're coequal (such as on a treaty, sticking with the government example), it's more appropriate for them to be arrayed in rows, alphabetically. So, going back to Keith's question, I think it depends on the situation, and judgment enters into the decision.
