Sending Pictures to FCI Beckley
If you are sending pictures to men at FCI Buckley, you need some information first. The prison does not accept inmate mail at the street address. Everything goes to a Post Office Box for both facilities.
Also, you must know the inmate’s name and federal inmate registration number. You can look up the number at the federal Bureau of Prisons inmate locator website. You can search by the person’s name or if you already have the number, the full name on the website.
Once you have that information, you address the envelope as follows for the main facility:
INMATE NAME & REGISTER NUMBER FCI BECKLEY P.O. BOX 350 BEAVER, WV 25813
The address for mailing to the satellite camp is:
INMATE NAME & REGISTER NUMBER FCI BECKLEY SATELLITE CAMP P.O. BOX 350 BEAVER, WV 25813
Note all inmate mail goes to the same Post Office Box, but the satellite camp has an extra line to identify that facility.
You cannot take pictures into the prison and give them to an inmate during a visit. Photos must be mailed.
The Bureau of Prisons has standard rules. Each prison has its own set of rules that are in addition to the overall federal regulations.
Some universal federal rules for images are:
No pictures or images that are sexually explicit.
No nudity or suggestive sexual acts.
Nothing that represents a threat to the security of the prison, the employees or the inmates.
All inmate mail is opened by the prison staff and inspected for contraband. If you send pictures the prison deems unacceptable, they are returned to you. The warden reserves the right to decide if a picture should be delivered or not.
Inmates at FCI Beckley can buy a photo album from the commissary. They must keep the album in their locker when not looking at the pictures.
If you want to send anything other than pictures and letters to someone at the prison, you must get approval from the administration first.

We Do the Rest
We do the rest. We print your images on photo-quality paper using premium color ink. We try to make each picture as close to the original size as possible. Since picture sizes may be limited, we will reduce large pictures to fit. We put the person’s name and inmate number on the back of each image.
If the prison has rules for how many pictures an inmate may receive in one envelope, we sort your order into separate envelopes. We make sure to mail each envelope a few days apart so the mail limit is not exceeded.
Inmate Photos is the best way to send pictures to your loved one at FCI Beckley. We mail pictures to inmates in more than 6,000 facilities across the nation.
We have no hidden fees. The amount you see is always the amount you pay. There are no subscription or recurring fees. When you pay to send the pictures, that is it.
