How to Address the Envelope

ATTENTION: After careful consideration and based on Belmarsh prison’s rules, ClassConscious.org and myself have come to the mutual conclusion that you only need to write Julian’s prisoner number on the envelope addressed to him, not his birthdate. The only time you should add his birthday is if for some reason you do not have his prisoner number on hand: A9379AY. See example below.

✅Julian’s full Name
✅Prisoner number
✅Name of prison

✅Your full name
✅Street address
✅City, State, zip code

Postage From the U.S. to the U.K.

USPS Global Stamps

The United States Postal Service has Green Succulent and Poinsettia Global stamps available. Purchase below (Ignore the “Celebrate Love” stamps at the top of the website, they’re not Global stamps)

A letter from the United States to the UK costs $1.15.  ONE USPS Global stamp will cover that postage. Note: Global stamps can only be used to mail *from* the US, not vice versa. Click link above to purchase.

You can also use Forever stamps although it’s not recommended (see below).

U.S. Postage Options

Please note:
▷ ONE Global stamp from the USPS will cover an envelope weighing up to 1 ounce which includes the envelope, your letter, an enclosed self-addressed stamped envelope, and a blank piece of paper.
▷ Anything more in the envelope (i.e. printed articles) may cost additional postage.

The Self-Enclosed Envelope

You can include a self-addressed stamped envelope with your letter to Julian so he can write back.  If you are in the United States you must affix TWO UK First Class stamps to the envelope along with your address.

Any of the stamps above will cover the cost of Julian mailing back a letter to you if you reside in the U.S. REMEMBER, USE TWO OF THEM. If you don’t live in the US, you can go HERE to find out the postage.

**PLEASE NOTE: If you’re in the United States you must purchase commemorative stamps from the UK. That does NOT include their red stamps with the queen on them.

✅ You only need ONE USPS global stamp on the envelope to mail *from* the U.S. to the U.K.

✅ You need TWO UK 1st class stamps affixed on the self-addressed stamped envelope for Julian to mail *back* to the U.S.
