HOW CAN I ENSURE A QUALITY FINGERPRINT?

There are a number of conditions that can affect the image quality of a fingerprint. For instance, wet or sweaty fingers can cause the fingerprint to look blurred and not come out clearly. On the other hand, dry fingers will cause the image to look broken and lack definition. If a clearly defined delta and core (see picture to the right) can be seen, then we have a quality fingerprint. At A1 FingerPrints, we are experts at looking and finding quality fingerprints to ensure they are approved.

WHAT ARE THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF FINGERPRINTS?

  • Arches – only represent five percent of the fingerprint patterns encountered – no core or delta formations 
  • Loops – constitute between 60-70 percent of the patterns found in fingers – one delta formation and a core
  • Whorls – constitute between 25-35 percent of the patterns found in fingers – two delta formations and a core 

HOW MUCH TIME DOES IT TAKE FOR A1 FINGERPRINTS TO CAPTURE MY FINGERPRINTS?

Our fingerprinting process should take anywhere between 5-10 minutes, depending on the image quality of your prints.

WHAT ARE YOUR HOURS OF OPERATION?

Our hours of operations are Monday through Thursday, 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m, Friday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and weekends by appointment. Walk-ins are welcome. We are also available for mobile fingerprinting services by appointment for business and organizations.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET BACK THE FINGERPRINTING OR DRUG TEST RESULTS?

Results should take anywhere between 48-72 hours. However, if the quality of prints are poor, it may require a reprint or a longer process time. If a criminal history is found, it can increase the amount of time taken to receive results. The state’s current work load is another factor that may affect fingerprinting results time. We will be here and available for help throughout the entire process.
