Shipping: 

All inmate orders are shipped via the United States Postal Service, and will take approximately 6–8 weeks for delivery. Every correctional institution has their own rules and regulations regarding mail and packages. While we do our best to comply with the regulations of each facility, we cannot make any guarantees that orders will be received by the inmate or in the expected time frame. Therefore, claims for orders not received will be at our discretion and handled on a case-by-case basis. If you know of any special requirements (an invoice or receipt being required), for packages and mail, please contact the Office of Journal Administration or make a note of the requirements directly on the order form.
Expedited Shipping: We are now accepting expedited shipping for inmate orders. Expedited orders can be shipped either via USPS Priority Mail Flat Rate (1–3 days) or USPS Priority Express (1 day). The price will be added to your subscription price. We cannot process refunds for shipping charges. All other expedited mail providers can be made using the customer’s UPS, FedEx, or DHL account. Please verify the use of these mail providers, prior to placing your order with the correctional facility.
All expedited orders must be coordinated with Customer Service. To place an expedited order, please contact Customer Service either by email or phone 202.662.9457.
