Mobile Ink Fingerprinting

Ink Fingerprinting is the traditional “old school” method of using black ink and a fingerprint card (sometimes referred to as “wet fingerprints” or “hard copy”). Fingerprint cards are mostly required for out-of-state licensing and federal employment.

Certified “Hard Card” Ink Fingerprinting Service.

San Diego Notary Girl is experienced with traditional Ink Fingerprinting services (hard copy). I am certified by the CA Department of Justice (DOJ) to finger print via FBI FD-258 Ink Cards. Applicants needing an FBI level criminal background check MUST be fingerprinted by a certified fingerprint technician who signs, dates and enters their official FPC certification number. San Diego’s trusted source for ink fingerprinting.

People often find it difficult to obtain the required blue FBI FD 258 fingerprint card (aka Ten Print, Ink Card, Hard Card, Blue Card, Wet Fingerprints, Hard Copy, Paper Fingerprints…). Fortunately, Alive Scan provides these fingerprint cards “FREE” to our customers! The FD-258 fingerprint cards are the newer version with the “Privacy Act” statement on the back. If you just need a blank fingerprint card, you can purchase them for $5.00 each.


Fingerprinting Guarantee

Alive Scan strives to capture the best quality fingerprints possible. Our success rate is very high. Occasionally, fingerprint cards get rejected because of low quality images. This is usually due to age. Although our fingerprint patterns never change, the ridge lines do get “worn down” as we age. Our fingerprint expert takes great pride in consistently producing the best possible prints. If your fingerprints are ever rejected due to poor quality prints, we will reprint at no charge.
