NFA Fingerprinting Scanner

  • Compact and portable all-in-one live scanner for single finger rolls, flats, and four finger slaps.
  • Rugged IP-54 dust and waterproof form factor.
  • FBI certification for civil ID and AFIS applications.
  • Fast and easy capture of wet and dry fingers.
  • Checks for fingerprint quality, sequence checking, and roll slippage.


For your convenience, PrintScan stocks blank FBI fingerprinting cards (FD-258) for sale. This standard FBI form is used for non-criminal fingerprinting and is generally accepted by agencies for fingerprinting purposes.



Captures electronic signatures to be printed directly onto cards eliminates the need to have applicants hand sign cards each time.


Available at a small additional charge, we offer an optional fingerprint sequence checking package that will compare the slapped flat hand images to the rolled fingerprint images. This allows the software to check to see if the rolled fingerprints are in the correct order.

This very useful feature helps prevent incorrectly rolled fingerprint cards and reduces rejection rates from the FBI.
