Default Can you send a printed page in the mail?

I was just thinikng about this, but I printed out lyrics and highlighted specific phrases and mailed it to him. Is this okay? I can't find any link or site to what the mail restrictions are for his jail. (Western Regional Jail in WV)

If any of you know of anything else that I can't send, just let me know! Thanks!

I think it might depend on the facility, but I'm not positive. I was able to type up lyrics and send them though. Not sure if a highlighter would pass in my husband's jail.

Definitely try to find a response from someone familiar with your LO's facility, however, per their website it doesn't appear to prohibited printed/highlighted items. The worst that could happen I suppose is that it's refused/returned to you. Good luck!

Oops! Sorry about that! :/
I see your point, it doesn't appear on the site for Western Regional. Crazy! I guess I'd just send it and see what happens.

I copy/past lyrics into Microsoft Word and use various fonts/colors. In my state, there cannot be a URL/web address on the bottom of the page, but the colored ink and different fonts aren't a problem.

In federal prison you can send in printouts. Best bet is probably to call his prison and double check.
