    Question JPAY TO SEND LETTERS???

    Hey all
    I was wondering if anybody uses jpay to send their letters?
    and whether or not you need to write your address in the letter space or they automatically print it on?
    Also if you attach a photo what size do they print it?


    Thanks
    xx

    Talking Re: JPAY TO SEND LETTERS???

    You can send e-mails through Jpay (and also send money).
    They're not "letters" actually. The facility your pp is incarcerated will be able to read it, print it out if he wants (but it costs money $.43 cts).

    You can attach a photo, your pp will have to pay to print it out, and it'll be only in black&white.

    You have to purchase "electronic stamps" on Jpay before (one stamp costs $ .43 cts). You choose the amount you want to pay.

    A little trick : if your e-mailed letter is too long (roughly a A4 sheet size), they will charge you another stamp - you can preview your letter before sending it, do it and if your letter is more than one page, then change the size of the characters (select small one) !

    But it works really well, you have to register before - and fill out a form.
    Then you have to search for the prison your pp is, then find your pp (through his DOC number, and his full name), once you've found him - you add him to your your list of inmate pps.

    If the prison has signed in with Jpay, you'll find him. No address needed !

    My pp gets my e-mails the same day I send them (since I'm in Europe), and I get his e-mails when I wake up around 7 am.

    Done with the

    Have fun with your pp

    I also use JPAY to occasionally mail my friend between letters. He has said everyone he has gotten so far has been there the day after I sent it so its a good way to do it if you want the mail to get there fast.

    I use Jpay to email my pp and hand write letters too, but use emails in between so he doesnt go too long without a letter. The only problem I had was that email has only just been introduced in his facility and they are checking emails quite strictly and they rejected one of my emails because I was talking about work (I work in a prison). I mention it all the time in letters with no problem. He appealed and got the email about 2 months later though. But Jpay itself is fine, no problems and very easy to use.

    It depends on which facility your friend is at as to how they get the jpay letters. Mine take 3 days at least to be delivered (notoriously slow with delivering anything!) and they are printed out and given to the inmate. Photos are printed onto the letter and are not much bigger than a postage stamp. As I said it all depends on which facility they are at as to how they are delivered.

    If you mean YOUR return address, that does NOT get put inside the letter unless you put it there.

    Thanks a lot guys ! Sent my first E-message last night!
    I've asked him to let me know when he gets it so i can workout how much time it saved
    he was the one that recommended it so i guess it must make a lot of difference to your average hand written!
    Might send the occasional letter in the post to put some glossy photos with if they don't print them out glossy..

    hope everyone is well!

    They print them out black and white on paper so you will definitely want to send the pics snail mail.

    You want the method to get the easiest answer to your questions? Click on "preview letter" and it shows you what they will see (although I'm not sure about the pics, except that they definitely receive them in black and white where I send them)
