Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How long does it take to get electronically fingerprinted?

It typically takes about 10 minutes from the time you are called, until all of your fingerprints have been captured.

Q.What is the process of ink fingerprinting?

Ink fingerprinting consists of rolling the customer’s fingerprints onto a fingerprint card using what is called the “ink and roll technique”. This technique allows us to record both rolled and flat impressions onto a fingerprint card.

Q. What information do I need to have my fingerprints done?

A valid state or federally issued form of identification is needed so we can prove your identity. A driver’s license or passport is an acceptable form of identification.

Q. What payment do you accept?

We accept all major credit cards for mobile appointments as well as cash for in-office services.

How many sets of fingerprint cards come with your appointment?

Our service includes up to 2 fingerprint cards in our price. You will receive 2 full sets of fingerprints.

Can I be fingerprinted on my own cards or do we have to use your company cards?

Yes, you can bring in your own cards for our technicians to roll fingerprints on. We also keep FBI FD-258 cards in stock at all times. This card is the U.S. standard and is accepted by most agencies.

Can you provide live scan fingerprinting for the California DOJ?

Yes and No. We can capture your fingerprints via live scan and print out hard cards. Unfortunately, the state of California doesn’t allow live scan electronic submission outside of the state. You will have to follow California’s out-of-state guidelines for mailing in your fingerprint cards.
