Do You Need Ink-Based Fingerprints?

Ink-based or rolled fingerprint images are obtained by rolling. a finger from one side to the other (“nail-to-nail”) in order to capture all the. ridge details of a finger. Plain fingerprints are those in which the finger is pressed. down on a flat
surface but not rolled.

Have you been told to mail your prints in? If so, you need to have rolled or ink-based fingerprints. We only use FBI recognized FD-258 Applicant Fingerprint cards.
