Email Endings: From Formal to Fun

Emails are becoming more casual in today’s fast-paced business world, where remote work and mobile devices are the norm.

So, what does this mean for your email endings?

Well, you can still use a formal ending like “Sincerely” or “Best regards” if you’re writing to a client or someone you don’t know well.

But if you’re writing to a colleague or business friend, you might like to use a more informal ending.

Something like:

  • “Cheers!”
  • “Best wishes”
  • “Talk to you soon”
  • “Thanks again”
  • “Best of luck”
  • “Talk to you later”
  • “See you soon”
  • “Have a great day!”

You can even come up with your own unique ending. Just make sure it’s appropriate for the situation.

Something like:

  • “Cheers to a great week ahead!”
  • “Best wishes, and thanks for your help.”
  • “Talk to you soon, and let me know if you have any questions.”
  • “Thanks again for the opportunity to work with you.”
  • “Best of luck with your presentation tomorrow!”
  • “Talk to you later, and have a great weekend!”
  • “See you soon, and I’ll bring the coffee!”
  • “Have a great day, and enjoy the sunshine!”

Next time you’re writing an email, don’t be afraid to let your personality shine through. A friendly and informal ending can make your email more engaging and relatable. 

One of my favourite email endings is “Talk to you soon!” It’s short, sweet and to the point. And conveys a sense of familiarity and friendliness.

So what’s your favourite informal email ending?
