I know it's okay at Stateville at least...I've sent many letters over the years that are very lengthy like that and have had no problems. I put large letters like that in a manila envelope but make sure if there is a metal clasp on the back to cut it off as that will cause it to be rejected. I try and buy the ones that are the peel and stick kind instead... :wc2:

 :wc11: No worries...I've sent a letter almost that long before with no problems...Like I said,your best bet since it won't fit in a standard size letter envelope is to put it in a big manila envelope. I don't even fold the letter up,just slide it in there flat...I cut off the metal clasp (very important!) and just use the flap alone to seal it up. Them I take it over to the post office,have them weigh it and put a metered postage label on it...And off it goes to your L/O!! I send print-offs of medical information to him about the prescription meds they are giving him as well as important articles related to IDOC in those big manila envelopes,too...I use the smaller ones to mail pictures. I know your L/O is really going to enjoy a long letter from you! Hearing from us is sooo important to them.. :wc50:
