Dear [Recipients Name],

This letter serves as a notice regarding the price increase that our company plans to put into effect immediately, starting June 15. This increase is caused by the continuing rise in the costs of raw materials and labor in the market today.

Rest assured, however, that we have found a way to reduce that price increase to the littlest amount possible in these circumstances. Our productivity rate and usage of the most advanced technologies in the market have allowed us to adjust the rise so that you, our loyal consumers, shall not bear the brunt of the increase.

For any inquiries, suggestions, and concerns regarding the increase or our services, do not hesitate to call our hotline number at 411-1111. We would most appreciate any and all inquiries, as well. Thank you for your continuing patronage and support.

Sincerely,

[Senders Name]
