I wanna make envelopes out of wrapping paper. Anyone see a problem with this going through the mail room?

Ooohh!! I never thought of using gift wrap to make envelopes! I have seen using pages from magazines though, I'm not sure whether that is allowed or not. I would imagine that it depends upon the facility

Your answer is easy fixed, just send him a letter and if it doesn't come back it's ok:)

I would recommend,
calling the post office,
in the town of the prison,
and asking them,
if they know of any problem,
with gift wrapped mail,
getting into the prison. ... :shrug:

That is a cool idea.You could always get in touch with the mail room and ask if it will get to the inmate

Good idea ... hope you do not care ... I am so using that idea! I think that it would be fine as long as the "paper" is thick enough for the postal service to pass. I make mine from scrapbook paper all the time and they pass ... good luck!

I also like messing with fonts and stuff and printing the envelopes out on my printer to give them that extra pizzaz. ... Most printers will let you print on envelopes, I like to do mine from word-pad or notepad. Pretty easy after ya mess up half a box of envelopes! ... lol!

I used to make envelopes out of wrapping paper and the post office machines would shred them apart. I have found that thicker paper with a good bond/seal works a little better.

The prison would accept them but sometimes they (either the post office or the prison) would have to put the letters in different envelopes. Good luck.
