What Is Ink Fingerprinting?

An Ink Fingerprint card is the traditional method of collecting fingerprints. A person’s fingertips are rolled in ink to cover the entire fingerprint area. Then, each finger is rolled onto prepared cards from one side of the fingernail to the other. These are called rolled fingerprints. Finally, all fingers of each hand are placed down on the bottom of the card at a 45-degree angle to produce a set of plain (or flat) impressions.
