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.
