Word Processing

Word processing services - picture of hands typing.

Here are some of the many word processing services we offer here at Curlew Secretarial Solutions:

Copy Typing

Letters, reports, manuscripts, journals, novels, memos, theses, manuals, lecture notes, speeches, job descriptions, contracts, information leaflets, fact sheets, proposals, scripts, tables, charts.

We are fully conversant in all Windows packages, and we can produce a professionally finished document on plain paper, letterheads or in any format you desire.

You can choose the fonts and layout or leave it to us.

We can also accommodate any special layouts such as graphics, tables, charts, columns, colours and styles.

We can work from rough notes, typed notes and documents according to your specifications.

Documents that include graphics, tables and charts require more time, and so there will be an extra charge for time spent creating them. Please Contact us for a quote.


If you send us notes from a meeting or audio file, we can type your minutes for you, we will also distribute them on request.

Proofreading and editing

Proofreading is a tedious but necessary task. Computer spell checkers are great, but they have their limitations.

We can provide a straight proofreading service highlighting problems as we find them on hard copies, or electronic documents using standard proofreading symbols, or we can amend any errors in grammar or spelling and flag up any adjustments for your approval before it goes to print.

Curriculum Vitae

We can type up your CV to your exact requirements and print out as many copies as you require on 100gsm white or coloured paper, or you can choose one of our options below:

Option 1: Typing up a CV from scratch, with the information you give us, into Microsoft Word. You will then receive ten printed copies and the Word document.

Option 2: We can edit, enhance or update your CV from a handwritten copy to a Word document,  print ten copies and send you the Word document.

Document Templates

We can produce forms and layouts for you and send them back as a template document, so you can use the same template over and over again without accidentally editing it or saving over it.

Database Services

We offer database design, management and input services.

Business and General Correspondence

It is easy to spend a lot of time on mailing and correspondence, so why not let us take the strain.

Bulk Mailing

We can write, address and post your letters, or you may wish to use your own franking machine in which case we will return the letters in their envelopes, ready for you to frank.

Individual correspondence 

No request is too small, if you only have one letter you would like us to type up or send that is no problem.

Stuffing Envelopes

If your letters are already written we can place them in the envelopes for you.  We will also fold leaflets and magazines before sending them.


We can send emails on your behalf.


We can print out labels for you via Mail Merge, or directly print the addresses onto the envelopes.

Please note: It is your responsibility to ensure that the lists you supply us with are legal. We will not help distribute junk mail or spam.
