Sending Fantasy Football Index to correctional facilities
We deliver the ink-on-paper Fantasy Football Index magazine to people who are incarcerated.
However, our newsletter products cannot be delivered to incarcerated persons.
Requirements: Orders must include the recipient's offender number in the last-name field, immediately after the last name. You have four lines to work with on the label, and you must use your best judgment when determining how to use those four lines.
Line 1: First Name / Last Name and Offender Identification Number
Line 2: First line of address
Line 3: Second line of address
Line 4: City, State, Zip Code
Problems with delivery. If you place an order on behalf of the inmate but you've made a mistake that causes the magazine to not be delivered -- for instance, if you forget to include the offender number, or if you put the offender number on the wrong line, or if you provide an incorrect delivery address, or if the inmate is moved to another facility before his magazine is delivered -- then we will resend a replacement copy at your expense. We will require you to pay the postage and actual cost for the replacement copy. As of July, 2020, this expense is $3.50. You will be asked to purchase a gift certificate for that amount. You must then notify us and ask us to ship a second copy.
Orders requiring special envelopes. Some correctional facilities, particularly in the state of Utah (though there may be others) forbid delivery in manila envelopes. If you fail to notify us of this requirement before we ship your order, then we will charge you our actual cost to send a replacement copy, as explained above.
Rejected and undelivered mail. We send mail to inmates in correctional facilities every day, and nearly all of the mail is delivered quickly and without incident. However, we encounter a disproportionate number of problems with mail to inmates. In a small number of cases -- 5 percent, maybe? -- the mail simply goes missing. In some cases the mail is rejected because whoever is screening mail that day woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Typically rejected mail is not returned to us, even though we've paid first class postage (which means they could just write "return to sender" on the envelope, but they don't bother. These reasons for non-delivery are beyond our control. Therefore, when mail sent to a correctional facility goes missing, we will charge you our actual cost to send a replacement copy.
