There are a few options when ordering items for inmates in CA. Please choose the correct option below to reduce any delays or returned packages.
RELIGIOUS PERSONAL PROPERTY PACKAGE
Religious Packages are allowed one time per quarter per inmate. They contain pre-approved items with limitations per category based on inmate privilege group. Most facilities do not require any paperwork to place these orders. However, if you have been sent a signed form from your inmate, please says so in the comments during checkout and mail it to us to include in/on the package to prevent it from being returned.
We will stop processing Religious Personal Property Package orders to California inmates at the end of this month. All mailed in orders post marked by April 20th will be honored and filled. Orders can be placed on our website through April 30th. We cannot process any orders over the phone at this time. We are sorry for this change and will give more details at the appropriate time.

HOBBY CRAFT PACKAGE
These packages are for inmates participating in the Hobby Craft Program at their facility. They may or may not have a signed approval form depending on their location. These packages have no generic limitations as these are set by each facility and yard. Please confirm with your inmate that the items they requested will be allowed so that your package is not returned (and charged a restocking fee). If your inmate does not know if they are in a Hobby Craft Program, then they probably are not. These orders will be placed on our regular website so please remember to add the CDCR number and housing information to your address. We do not have a printed craft catalog at this time.

Books may be sent anytime to CA inmates. There may be a limit to how many books your inmate can have at one time, so please confirm with them before ordering a larger number of books. Books are mailed separately from other package orders. Any book with a hard cover will have the cover removed before it is given to the inmate, so we sell soft cover / paperback whenever they are available from the publisher.

SPECIAL PURCHASE / DONATIONS
These orders are for special items like drums or orders of supplies that are intended to be used by a specific group at a prison (not a specific inmate). These orders are REQUIRED to have a signed approval form attached with the package in order to be sent. These orders will be placed on our regular website so please remember to add the identifying group name and housing information to your shipping address and mail us the signed forms for us to be able to complete the order.
