Tips for Goodwills?

Should I use a certain type of font color or use italics like in pre-HIPAA letters or does it not matter?  Also, should they be sent certified mail?  Just looking for any kind of tips before I mail off my first GW.  Thanks in advance!

I use regular font, white paper, and keep my GWs to 1/2 page. I won't sign them for a CA but would sign it everywhere else. For an OC, I always include my addresses and a phone number. I always send GWs w/ a 1st class stamp.

I haven't got a GW letter to work for me yet.  GEMB/ Dillards send me the same response each time.
