Ink Fingerprinting

Ink Fingerprinting For Any And All Use Cases

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.

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.
