Q: Do you do fingerprinting for DISD or any of
the other public schools in Texas?
A: No, we provide ink based fingerprinting on the
FBI FD258 Card. Currently, the Texas Department of
Public Safety contracts with L-1 Identity Solutions
to provide this service for you. If you are required
to obtain electronic fingerprinting with F.A.S.T.
form instructions, you will need to contact them to
schedule an appointment for you. Just go online to
www.l1id.com to schedule your appointment.

such as nursing, real estate, phycians, etc.?

complete State fingerprinting for all 50 states and
for Federal (FBI) criminal background checks.

a 2 card appointment.

identification, such as a driverís license, Military
ID, Alien Registration Card, or a current Passport.
Q: Will you come to my home or office to provide
fingerprinting services? If so, does it cost more
than scheduling an appointment at your Irving
A: Yes, for your convenience we do offer a mobile
service. It costs a little higher because we must
charge a fee for our travel time and fuel. The
travel charge varies (starting at $25) depending on
where you are located from Irving. Just call for a
free quote at (214) 793-1155 or 214-733-7105.
Q: Can I go to a Police department in order to
get my fingerprints officially recorded?
A: Yes you can - but you may have to wait in a long
line - you may have a very intimidating experience -
and they will not supply the fingerprinting cards
you need. We are certified and approved by the Texas
Department of Public Safety and are authorized to do
the same fingerprinting as they are.
You will have a much quicker - professional - and
non-intimidating experience by coming to our clean,
professional office setting for your fingerprint
Q: Is your service guaranteed?
A: Most definitely - Our rejection rate is
extraordinarily low but in the event you recieve a
letter stating your prints were unclassifiable, call
us at 214-793-1155, make an appointment in our
office, and we will re-print you at NO CHARGE.
Q: Will you submit my fingerprint cards to the
FBI or State for me?
A: No, we will fingerprint you on the FBI FD-258
card and afterwards will wrap them and give them to
you. It is your responsibility to send the cards off
to the FBI and/or State along with applicable fees
they require for processing the criminal background
checks. We can also provide you with an FBI packet
with the needed cover letter and other information -
just ask us for that!
Q: What are your business hours?
A: We do not maintain standard hours at our office
daily since we provide mobile service in addition to
office appointments. We can be available 24 hours a
day, 7 days a week so let us know when you need to
meet and we will schedule your appointment for you.
Please note that rates are higher after 6:00 pm and
prior to 8:00 am.
Q: Do you charge more for evening or weekend
A: Yes. Most appointments (99%) are requested during
the day so if we have appointments between 6:00 pm
and 8:00 am, we add $15 each hour starting at 6:00
pm. For example, if we meet at 6:30 pm, the charge
is $15 higher than a standard daily rate. If we meet
at 9:15 pm, the charge would be $45 higher than the
standard daily rate, etc.
Q: If you are a 24 hour service, why would you
charge more between 6:00 pm at night and 8:00 am in
A: We know that people have emergencies and some
have erratic work schedules, fly in and out of the
airport, etc. so we make ourselves AVAILABLE and on
call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for that reason.
Q: Do you offer special pricing for corporate
groups, CHL classes etc.?
A: Yes we do! We offer the lowest rates of all
Dallas area private fingerprinting contractors. If
any give you a better quote than ours, just let me
know who it was and what the price was before you
schedule an appointment with them and in most cases,
I will price match or beat their quote.
We charge the lowest mobile service call rates in
the area and the lowest per card rates. Our tag line
says it all: DFW's #1 Choice for Fingerprinting!
Q. If we call you out for a mobile service call
and we aren't ready for you to begin fingerprinting
at the time we originally agreed on, will we be
charged waiting fees?
A: Yes, after the first 10 minutes of our designated
start time, we charge $10 per quarter hour (15
minutes rounded up) until we begin fingerprinting or
notarizing documents. Our time is as valuable as
yours and if we are on time, we hope you will be
too. We have appointments scheduled throughout the
day so starting our appointment late often results
in us needing to reschedule or bump appointments
with others and that is not fair to anyone. We
realize circumstances happen though so if you need
more time before we start our appointment, please
notify us in plenty of time to make adjustments. In
return, we will certainly call you if we get into a
traffic problem which could delay us!

procedure, or appointments, please call us at
