Our Ink Fingerprinting Process
Ink fingerprinting is the traditional method of taking a person's fingerprints on the industry standard FD-258 Fingerprint Card.
At Distinctive Biometrics, we stock standard FD-258 fingerprinting cards in addition to FINRA fingerprint cards. However, our ink fingerprinting service can be used to apply fingerprints to any state-specific card you may require.
Note: Livescan fingerprinting developed onto card printouts are the equivalent to ink fingerprinting and can be submitted as an alternative.
Types of Fingerprint Cards
- FD - 258 Cards

Reasons For Ink Fingerprinting
FDLE Background Checks
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) requires ink fingerprinting cards to perform a background check before completing a background check.
Out of State Requirements
You may need to get your fingerprints taken when applying for a license or background check for a state you do not live in.
In this case, you must submit a fingerprint card that meets that specific state's requirement.
FBI Background Checks
Many federal agencies still require traditional fingerprint cards for federal requests and employment applications.
