As Per ( or ) In Accordance With :

“Enclosed is the shipment of #2 toggle bolts as per your order of June 14” writes the businessman, unaware that not only is the “as” redundant, he is sounding very old-fashioned and pretentious.

The meaning is “in accordance with,” or “in response to the request made”; but it is better to avoid these cumbersome substitutes altogether:

“Enclosed is the shipment of bolts you ordered June 14.”
