After fingerprinting the child, most parents find it easiest to place the card back into the envelope, if the envelope was destroyed when opening, simply place the fingerprint card in a plastic sandwich bag for safe keeping. We find most parents keep it with important documents… do not put it in a safety deposit box, you may not have access to it when needed. Fingerprints are produced using a clear inkless solution, patented process, that leaves no messy black ink or residue on fingers or clothes.
Parents DO NOT NEED to be fingerprint experts – a black fingerprint appears quickly on the identification card when the clear inkless solution makes contact with the coated fingerprint section of the card.
