Live Scan Santa Barbara Ink Card Fingerprinting

Live Scan Santa Barbara provides traditional ink card fingerprinting for businesses and individual applicants that need this service in Santa Barbara.  Our FBI Ink Card Fingerprint service is provided to applicants who need to obtain a nationwide background check from the FBI, and those who need to send their fingerprint images to states outside of California. We provide the highest quality ink printing available for your ID cards.  A standard 8"x8" FBI fingerprint card, also known as FBI FD-258 card, is normally used. If you do not have the required cards, we will provide them to you at no charge.


Ink Pads

At Live Scan Santa Barbara, we use high quality ink pads for our ink card fingerprints. The quality ink we use makes all the difference with fingers that may be dry or oily and have trouble picking up ink and rolling an acceptable print. It is easy to clean, and you will get a ink remover wipe to clean up with upon completion of being printed.


Fingerprint Cards

The most common fingerprint cards used are the standard FBI FD-258 fingerprint card. We always have a large supply of this type, and if you do not already have your own we can supply you with what is needed. If you are not sure what kind of fingerprint card you need, feel free to call Live Scan Santa Barbara and we can point you in the right direction.

Live Scan Santa Barbara clients also have the peace of mind knowing that fingerprint cards are prepared by Department of Justice and FBI certified fingerprint technicians.  All FBI cards will be signed by your technician.
