Default Can we send pictures of Internet Memes?

Hi there,

Are we allowed to print out funny internet memes on photo paper and send them to an inmate like we would any other photo? As long a we write their name and CDC? Or would it be seen a "code" or something? Or just try and see what happens?

Thanks!

I would call and ask. I send them to my husband all the time but we are in Michigan. They just considered it like any other picture.

My guy is in CA and when I used to send him letters through regular mail (now I use Jmail) I typed my letters and printed them out at home...and I often copy-pasted funny pics from online at the end of the letter - could've been anything; something lovey-dovey or something humorous... I did NOT do this on photo paper though, just normal letter paper - I don't know if it makes any difference as far as what's allowed but all my letters went through without problems...

I send them to AZ all the time. I've had some returned stuff from other prisons, but that was because I ripped out word searches from books, if things are printed on regular paper it should be just fine.

I type most of letters these days and always include a few memes or funny pictures at the end, as Sarianna said, just on the regular paper.

Follow the basic rules of no nudity, gangs/guns/drugs and you should be fine.

No booze in the pictures either. (cans, bottles etc)
Not sure about cigs tho.
I'd avoid to be on the safe side

Yes you can. I send prison memes (or just funny ones) all the time and we get a good chuckle. "Prison wives be like ..." He will never understand the struggle!

On my husband's yard, someone sells printed love quotes on photo paper because he sends these to ME all the time. Lol. They are from the internet.

Absolutely no problem in Oregon. I pestered him with lolcats, memes and all kinds of stuff.
