How to list an inmate on Inmate Classified

Founded in 1996, Inmate Classified was created to address prison inmates’ need to reconnect with friends, family, as well as facilitating positive communication with people around the world.

To list your friend or loved one we require the information in the Order Form, at least one photo (less than 3 years old), and the profile text. Print and mail them a copy of the Order Form if they want to submit themselves.

Currently we do not take credit card payments, but that will change soon. For now we accept checks or money orders that you can mail after you submit the profile.

Make your check or money order payable to:
Inmate Classified,
P.O. Box 3311
Granada Hills, CA. 91394

Premium profiles are featured on the front page of our website and on the banner at the bottom of all other profiles for high exposure.

You can add more photos to a profile at $5 each, and text at $10 for 300 words.

Every profile includes a personal message box, which allows visitors to leave messages. Once each week we will download and print the inmate’s messages (if any) and send them directly to him at the prison via regular mail. Some visitors fail to leave a street address, intentionally or by neglect. In those cases we make it possible for the inmate to respond to those messages. He can send us a response letter; we’ll scan it (image, as was written) and e-mail it on his/her behalf; maximum 8.5″x11″ letter size paper allowed; anything larger cannot be scanned. The cost is $2 per message per page (or 5 first class stamps where allowed).
