Letter sheets are the formal paper in your stationery collection used for longer letters.  There are a few different sizes available. The note sheet measures 6 3/8" x 8 1/2" The standard letter sheet generally measures 6" x 7" The monarch letter sheet generally measures 7 1/4" x 10 7/8" The executive letter sheet measures 7 1/4" x 10 7/8" The size you select is usually a matter of taste, style and preference.  However, as they go up in size they become more formal.  The note sheets and monarch sheets are generally used for non-business correspondence.  One point of reference is the fact that some choose to run their executive stationery through a laser printer for correspondence at work.  If you choose to go this direction you will want to make sure that flat ink is an option.  Thermograved or "raised" ink tends to melt when ran through laser printers.  Thus, smearing the ink on the stationery.
