Ink Fingerprint Cards of Live Scan? 

We do both- but your employer or agency may require one or the other

With all Digital Fingerprinting your Fingerprinting Card and application will be created digitally, sent to the FBI or other Agency for processing, and your results will be sent to you or your employer as needed.  We use Livescan technology equipment to digitally capture fingerprints and print on FD-258 cards with black ink (accepted and preferred method by all federal, state and other agencies) with no smudging or smearing. Less than 0.5% of our digital fingerprints are rejected. In the rare event of a rejection, we re-roll for free! No need to use messy ink, mail, track, wait, and hope the results come back soon. 

However, you can request physical ink FD-258 fingerprint cards for non-Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) purposes such as licensure or employment in other states: Federal purposes, ATF, for other countries, or for other non-CBI purpose.  If your instructions provided by the agency requesting fingerprints state to get them in black ink our method meets their requirement – we guarantee it. Ink Fingerprinting is not available for CBI purposes- that's the State of Colorado's policy, not ours.  If your fingerprints need to be processed with CBI for a background check please schedule with and select our fast, large, and friendly location. Not for use for concealed carry or court ordered fingerprints, please contact your county sheriff for assistance with these purposes.
