Default Can I send a custom 2020 Calendar?

My husband has been asking for a custom photo calendar. Most photo centers print and bind them, which I donít think is accepted in prisons. Has anyone had luck sending a custom calendar to an inmate? Or know where they make them without spiral binding?

In Oregon, they can have calendars sent through Amazon or another book or magazine seller. Not from home. If you have a print shop deliver it, possibly. Call the mail room and ask. The calendar can't be like a binder or it will be rejected. I send a calendar every year that is just stapled together and it is fine.

My boyfriend (he's in OR too) mentioned this to me as well that he would love a personalized 2020 calendar - he gave me a website to order from, I can't remember it for the life of me so I will ask him next time I talk to him.

You can send a calendar, but depending on which prison he's in, they may send it back if:

1. It has any metal (including staples)
2. It has photographs of any naked or semi-naked people (including babies)

If you get one from a bookstore like Amazon, they would probably let it through.

That said, I sent a popup card that had absolutely no metal in it at all, and it was sent back to me saying that they'd have to destroy the card to search it properly, so make sure it doesn't have floofy bits on it.

I send the guys a calendar (not a photo calendar) every year. I print it out online, and it's got half the year printed on one side and half on the other. There's just enough room in each day's box to write a couple of initials. I've never had that returned to me, but that's pretty boring.
