Should you use a comma/period after “Thanks”/“Regards” in email signatures?

I see answers on how to end a letter putting a comma after for example sincerely, like:

Sincerely,
Name

Is it incorrect to write it without a comma, like the following?

Sincerely
Name

Does the answer change if one used: "Best wishes", "Regards", "Cheers", etc.?

Best Answer

If you look at a How to Write A Business Letter manual, the comma will more than likely be there. For business letters it may matter. For personal letters, there are no strict rules.

No, the situation doesn't change with "Best wishes", "Regards", or "Cheers".
