Can I write in colored pens?

Hello everyone! Have any of you sent a letter to an inmate in Texas before? I really want to cheer him up by sending a letter that has some sentences written down in colored pens, so can you guys tell me if it's okay or not? Also I drew some doodles in the letter too, is that okay, as well? Thank you for the answers!

I would stick to black or blue ink. I sent a PP a greeting card being that it was my initial contact and they sent it back. They said only white envelopes were allowed. That is honestly ridiculous. The worst part is it took almost a month for me to receive the letter back. They attached a form with an explaination where it stated their mail rules it also indicated a copy was given to the inmate. I was pretty upset. Anyhow I hope my experience helps someone out.
