Please tell folks a little about the inmates that you are adding. If you own or operate a Pen Pal web site that charges a fee to either an inmate, or a person seeking to write to an inmate, do NOT post on this site. Any posts that I find, linking back to a fee-based web site, will be removed.
Important rules you need to know In this general guide on mailing items to an inmate I will cover mailing letters, photos, books, cards, magazines and newspapers. Mailing Letters to Inmates It may not seem like much to someone on the outside, but when you are incarcerated letters are your lifeblood.
They keep you going from day to day and bring the voices or those you love right into your head. Often times inmates can hardly wait to get that next letter delivered from the mail room.
In prison and jail there are few things to look forward to and mail is one of them. Getting mail can be slow, and when a facility write an inmate for free on lockdown incoming mail deliveries to inmates stop and do not continue until the lockdown is lifted.
One of the big scams out there that I have been noticing is various "Inmate Service" companies that claim you can contact your inmate online, or send them a message through their website.
Don't be fooled this is all a scam as no inmates have access to the internet or any instant messaging services. Besides the fact that it is a rip-off, it really takes the best part out of receiving a letter It may sound stupid but it's not the same getting a typed letter.
Some things you should never do when sending a letter, as it will result in the letter being rejected: Photos are great to recieve when your incarcerated for many reasons. Unfortunately, photos are another area that some online companies are exploiting. These companies let you upload photos online, they print them and forward them to the inmate, meanwhile they are charging you ten times the amount it costs to just do it yourself.
You can upload the photos online and then go pick them up, put them in an envelope and mail them or just have them mailed directly to the inmate through the Walgreens website mailing them directly has some drawbacks.
Photos should be no larger than 4"x6" Always print the inmates name and ID number on the back of the photo in pen this helps the mail room staff Photos should never contain nudity, sexually suggestive material Hand gestures and tattoos are often not allowed because of gang implications Only 5 photos can be sent in an envelope with a single stamp at a time, and often times a facility will only allow photos Remember staff and other inmates will be seeing these Mailing Books, Magazines, and Newspapers to Inmates Okay, I know before I said "if there is one thing an inmate loves more then a letter is photos" Well there may be a few other things that top the list.
Receiving books, magazines or newspapers is a gift that really keeps on giving sometimes days and even weeks after an inmate gets them. But how do I go about sending them, you ask? It is much easier then you think.
Well what does that mean 'from the publisher'? Simply put, it means order them from Amazon. Some key things about ordering books are they must come NEW, and must must must be paperback. If they are hardcover they will be rejected. If they are used they will be rejected.
If they are not from a publisher like amazon and you send them yourself in a box they will be rejected! Ordering books for an inmate through Amazon is easy, you just have to make sure that you select ship by USPS and that you ship it to the inmate's mailing address.
Next line put the facility name and then the address, so if I were sending an inmate items to Ulster Correctional Facility it would look like this: John Doe, P.
Box Napanoch, New York If you are unsure of the inmate's mailing address or the inmate's ID number we have all that information on our site. Just use the search on this page to find the facility, or you can select the state the facility is located in on our homepage or by clicking the blue bar at the top of this page.
I have ordered dozens of books and magazines for inmates through Amazon and have never run into a problem yet, except for one time when I ordered something to an inmate who was at a short term facility, but they just rejected the box of books and Amazon credited me back, with no extra work on my end.
Magazines and newspapers can be ordered the same way, through amazon and using the same method at checkout we highlighted above.
