Q: Are Flikshop postcards security-friendly for correctional facilities?
Yup! Flikshop goes the extra mile to include a ton a security features to ensure that the people that are incarcerated and the correctional facility staff will LOVE receiving those fun little postcards in the mail.
Our machine learning technology scans each Flikshop postcard for nudity/sexually suggestive photos, known gang signs, drugs and weapons within the photo, and excessive profane language.
Flikshop also uses a metered stamp that is printed directly on each postcard to prevent potential reuse of each stamp or the hiding of contraband behind a traditional stamp. That means no more mail that needs to be scanned or inspected past a quick glance by correctional personnel.
