    Can you show me an example of using "pp" in a letter - signing for the individual who is actually sending the letter?

    At the bottom of the letter (Under: Your Sincrely), type the name of the person who should have signed the letter.

    Then, before the name of the person write: pp Then you can place your signature.


    Looking forward to hearing from you,

    Yours Sincerely

    Normally your signature will go above the "pp John Doe".
