What You’re Not Allowed to Send When Sending Photos to California Institute for Women
Certain types of photographs are not allowed to be sent to inmates at the California Institution for Women at Chino. The state of California is very strict on the types and number of photos that loved ones are allowed to send to an inmate at one time. You are limited on the number of photos you can send, the contents of those photos, and even on the type of envelope and color of ink used to write an inmate’s address on that envelope.
There is nothing more frustrating than sending a batch of photos to an incarcerated inmate at CIW, only to find out that the photos were confiscated and never delivered because some obscure rule was not followed. InmatePhotos.com knows the rules and adheres to them, so that you never have to worry whether some (or all) of your photos are delivered to an inmate in a timely manner.
Here are some guidelines that you should follow when uploading personal photographs to Inmate Photos:
Photos can be as large as 8″ by 10″ if guidelines are followed
No nudity is allowed in mailed photographs
No hand gestures or gang signs are allowed in mailed photographs
No tattoos must be visible in mailed photographs
No photos of illegal activities or gang activities can be mailed to CIW inmates
So long as your photos adhere to those guidelines, InmatePhotos.com will be able to successfully mail and deliver your photographs in batches of up to 10 photographs at a time to an inmate. (CIW allows no more than 10 photos in an envelope.)
We will check your photos to ensure that they adhere to the guidelines before printing and mailing them. You should also know that all envelopes mailed to inmates at CIW are inspected by prison staff before they can be delivered to an inmate. This is yet another reason why our service is so helpful to family members and loved ones of inmates housed at CIW in Chino!

Why to Use InmatePhotos.com
There are two main reasons to use InmatePhotos.com to send high-resolution photographs to inmates incarcerated at CIW.
The first reason is because physical photographs are one of the most treasured items that you can send to an incarcerated loved one. Nothing lifts the spirits and boosts morale of a person going through prison rehabilitation like a physical photograph that they can touch and hang on the wall of their cell. It’s been said that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” but all the research indicates that a picture is worth even more. Most female inmates value physical photographs more than commissary funds and handwritten letters!
The second reason is that InmatePhotos.com knows all the rules and regulations associated with the California Institution for Women in Chino. So long as your uploaded photos comply with the CIW’s rules, we will ensure that they are promptly delivered to the correct inmate without being confiscated or held up by prison staff.
