its already there, I got five letters back, because one had a postcard in, the sent it back. The other was a handmade card, printed in a store, so yes its already there. and they copy all letters means they dont get the original they just get a copy, they get a copy of the envelop too, the greeting card will get copied too, just pictures there get original.

Well crap. I just sent a ton of holiday cards (designed by me, printed on regular paper) to Ohio prisons. Looks like they won't be getting them.

I know they can have 5 5x7 photos sent at once but is there a limit on how many total photos they can have? Also, can I send some pages out of a crossword puzzle book?

Maybe you have luck, and it will work because the prison do it. I cross my fingers.

It seems as though all the Ohio inmates I sent cards to received them without incident.

I've still had success with photos embedded in typed letters (i.e. printed on my printer). He's getting originals, not photocopies, but I haven't been sending in any other color material. The mail room does seem to be checking the "five page limit" on printed material more rigorously, which they never used to do; I enclosed six pages of patient medical information, and the whole letter was confiscated as nuisance contraband.
