I take great pride in my New York fingerprinting skills and equipment. You can have confidence knowing I have processed many NYC fingerprinting assignments, with a near zero (about 2%, the same as "live scan" computer based systems) reject rate. I have taken fingerprints for FBI clearances, Immigration, Brokerage Licenses, Alcohol & Tobacco Licenses, etc. The high rejection rate of inkpad NY fingerprinting can cause unnecessary delays in licensing, immigration, etc. Call me to avoid repeated expenses and wasted time due to unskilled NYC fingerprinting services, and/or improper equipment. My Manhattan Fingerprinting coverage often responds within the hour. I use the most comprehensive "kit" of sophisticated and technologically advanced equipment available and approved for use in New York, including:

Fingerprinting tips for successful prints:
My New York, NYC and Manhattan Fingerprinting prices are both fair and competitive, I am very confident that the fingerprints that I take will be acceptable. Some folks literally "have no fingerprints" for them an Affidavit of "best obtainable" is processed. My fingerprinting service will help you obtain your FBI clearance, Business License, or Immigration approval; quickly and efficiently.
Accordingly; it is my policy to redo at no charge or refund (Your Choice) any print card that is rejected due to fingerprint quality. Yes, totally free - no "trip fee" or other hidden charges. Obviously, with a guarantee of this type it is almost as important to me as it is to you to do it right the first time!
The two basic techniques of taking fingerprints.
How to check out a Fingerprinting Service
My thoughts on Live Scan Fingerprinting Technology
I investigated the current "Guardian" as well as the older and somewhat obsolete "ID-500" (it cannot do "flat four" rapid scanning and relies heavily on the skill of the operator to roll the fingers - exactly the same as ink and paper). I determined they are best suited to a single location, sending always to the same place. The problem is that the scanning machines are limited to sending to a single destination. For example, if I purchased a "Guardian" and registered it for FINRA (brokerage use); I could not use it to send to anywhere else. But, if I carry along a computer, than the scanner could be reconfigured to send to a different location. However, the manufacturer told me that a separate PC is really required for each location that prints will be sent to! To make things worse, only FBI certified printers are allowed to print standard cards from the scanned images. Thus, to provide the same flexibility I now have with card and ink, I would need a scanner, several laptops, and a FBI approved printer. Way too much complexity for me. And, I might add in passing that I am truly a computer expert, having done PC support since the Apple was first introduced! It does make sense for XYZ Brokerage to have it to register brokers with FINRA - the brokerage clearinghouse - one machine - one target destination is when the "Live Scan" solution seems most practical.
Unless the live scan device has already been configured to send to the destination location; your only choice, if you want live scan, is finding a service that has the ability to print on your existing card. Even then, the results are not certain as the scan, computer, FBI approved printer; in combination, will only print the fingerprints to the locations that are on standard FBI physical fingerprint cards. If your card is a bit off, the prints will not be "in the box" - and the card is flawed. Unless you verify the scanning service either is already configured for your destination location; or they have the ability to print from scan on your card (at your risk if the image is not properly "in the boxes") - it's a lot of effort and expense just to avoid a bit of ink. In view of the above, what actually happens is that most of the live scan customers are "directed" to the ink station - which I can do at your location, at your convenience, and I offer a redo/money back guarantee.
For general purpose work, Immigration, Clearances, Licensing, Adoptions, etc - Ink, card, and a skilled technician seems the most practical approach for the time being. That will probably change, but not anytime soon. I don't use a "black box", you can see the quality of my fingerprinting with your own eyes, No network delays, no software "glitches", no super high tech prices - just what you need to submit - instantly.
