Ink Card Fingerprinting Services

Getting Your Ink Card Fingerprints Digitized
Want to get your fingerprints digitized in the national database? Receiving ink card fingerprinting service can basically be seen as part of the initial process. For such ink card fingerprinting services there are many Live Scan Biometrics industry related business and dedicated ink fingerprinting locations all across the United States that can fingerprint you. Just choose a certified and approved fingerprinting location nearest you for ink card fingerprinting services.

FD-258 Ink Fingerprint CardNow for clarification, when we speak of getting your “fingerprints digitized”; it basically means that you (the applicant) will first get fingerprinted on the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) ink card form called “FD-258.” Once fingerprinted on the ink card, you are typically required by your requesting agency to send back the ink card(s) to them. Once the requesting agency receives the ink card(s), they will convert the prints to a digitized format. The converting process is basically scanning the ink fingerprint card to an electronic image. Once the fingerprints are in an electronic digitized format they are submitted and processed through law enforcement agencies criminal databases such as the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and/or perhaps the FBI.


Ink Card Fingerprinting Usages

Although majority of agencies use live scan to enroll fingerprints FBI uses ink cards. Commonly known as the “blue ink card”; the demand for ink card fingerprinting continues to be strong. Ink card fingerprinting services are typically used for the following purposes:

Ink card fingerprinting services are also used by Government Agencies when an applicant's function are deemed "sensitive" and/or required by the Federal Law.


The Fingerprinting Process

There are different methods of fingerprinting available. First is the Standard ink cards or the ink fingerprinting cards are the standard ink fingerprinting equipment. Two types of ink cards are generally used: FD-258 and FD-249. Ink is used to record the fingerprints and the images of these prints are scanned into the system database with the help of ink cards.

The second alternative is using Live Scan. Live scan does not use ink and paper. It needs a Live Scan device to electronically capture the fingerprints and then electronically store in the system. It is also used for FBI background checks. In fact it has become an essential tool in any and all kinds of law investigations.

Both of the above mentioned methods have their own pros and cons. Ink card fingerprinting is a traditional method of the biometrics fingerprinting industry; while Live Scan on the other hand is a more modern technique with a completely digitized approach.

Live Scan in United State has been a major tool to put away many law breakers like criminals, sexual offenders, arsonists, vandals, etc. They were mainly used for purposes like criminal booking, background checks, registering civil applicants, etc. Apart from United States, Live Scan has also become an essential tool for law agencies internationally.
