You’re welcome! It would also probably be helpful for you to read through department order 914 regarding inmate mail. http://https://corrections.az.gov/si...914_010119.pdf

You could also browse through the AZ forums if you haven’t already as I’m sure a lot of topics you’re wondering about may have been talked about. This site and the people on it are great!

Yes you can send cards and photos.

Like others said I would keep the cards simple. Some places have a rule of no colored envelopes.

Photos, can be sent too. Best bet is to google his prison's website they usually have the rules on visitation and on mail posted.

You cannot send cards with glitter, or anything that can be removed from the card. South Carolina's DOC website doesn't explain what kind of cards they are allowed to receive.

When you send pictures, the maximum you can send per envelope is 10, anymore than that will be destroyed. While he's at R&E, he cannot receive pictures. Only cards and letters.

Here's the link to the general FAQ regarding sending mail,

I'd be careful using this site. Most of the information has been revised or is outdated.
