I don't know about the specific facility your boyfriend is in, however, if someone here doesn't know perhaps it would be best if you could call there and find out.

For years I had a calendar sent to my husband and then last year they came out and said no more. So, I just sent him one of those small credit card size ones. Not the same, I know. But at least now he can keep track of the dates.

Good luck to you!

Well here in NC they can have a calendar sent to them - well let me clear that up - at the facility my loved one is at he can have a calendar sent to him- not all places in NC allow them.... it cant be no bigger than a 8x10 and it cant be spiral bound - meaning it cant have wire..... My suggestion would be to contact the prison where your loved one is at and ask to speak with someone who is in the mail room.... then ask them if they are allowed to be sent calendars... that way you dont send it and they have to pay to have it sent back because they cant have it!!! Plus it depends on if there is any nudity in the calendar as well... I havent seen this years Sports Illustrated calendar but just depends I guess....Call and ask or post in the state forum where you loved one is currently at and ask if anyone there knows if they are allowed to be sent Sports Illustrated calendars....

i would also say contact the prison or get your man to ask around. i know my man can't have anything with staples or wire (or paperclips or ANYTHING) - so i would definately check with the prison

At the facility where my sweetheart is, it's ok for me to mail him calendars as long as they aren't spiral bound.
I'd call the prison and ask!
Oh, and this year's S.I. calendar is pretty tame, so shouldn't be a problem.
