I've skimmed IDOC's Manual of Policies and Procedures and there is no mention of stamps being allowed in correspondence, but does include the following:
Quote:
XV. STATIONERY, ENVELOPES AND POSTAGE:

Each facility shall ensure that postage stamps, stationery and envelopes are sold through the facility’s commissary or through another means if the facility does not operate a commissary. Offenders shall be permitted to purchase sufficient postage stamps, stationery and envelopes to meet their correspondence needs. Facilities may limit the amount of postage stamps purchased at one time in order to reduce the use of postage stamps as currency in the facilities; however, offenders shall be permitted to purchase up to five (5) books of first class stamps (total of 50 stamps) each week (Five [5] books per commissary order if the offenders can order commissary weekly or ten [10] books per commissary order if commissary is ordered every two [2] weeks). Offenders shall be allowed to possess up to ten (10) books of stamps at any one time, unless the offender is found to be using the postage stamps inappropriately. Additionally, with the approval of the Superintendent, offenders may be permitted to request additional postage stamps or postage by using a “Request for Remittance” or similar form. Offenders may be required to justify the need for additional postage beyond what is available weekly from the commissary.

Even though not specifically addressed, the answer is no, you cannot mail stamps.


When I click on icare from IDOC webpage, it says that they no longer offer icare
