At times, fingerprints are required to be captured using the “ink and roll” method on fingerprint cards. Industries such as banking, Out-of-State Licensing Agencies, Out-of-State Nursing and International Travel Requirements are among several reasons why you may need to have your fingerprints captured on a paper fingerprint card.
Accurate Biometrics offers Ink Fingerprinting at all of our locations. Accurate Biometrics guarantees our service. If you have an Ink Card rejected by the FBI, due to fingerprint technician error (i.e. images out of sequence), return to one of our locations with an Accurate Biometrics receipt (and the FBI rejection notice), and you will be printed at no cost.
Accurate Biometrics provides ink or livescan fingerprint capture for Corporate Board members and Company owners required to submit to fingerprinting for a liquor license or general business license. Our service is professional, discreet, confidential, trusted and can be performed onsite. Call today 773-685-5699, Ext 204 for scheduling and pricing.
