Fingerprint Cards

​We provide FD-258 fingerprint cards with the appropriate Privacy Act Statement and markings. This is the standard FBI fingerprint card most States accept as well. We can also capture your prints onto any fingerprint card you have been provided by another agency. 

This service is for non-Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI) purposes such as licensure or employment in other states, adoptions, childcare, Federal purposes, ATF, countries other than the USA, or for other non-CBI purpose.   

After each set of fingerprints are taken, we perform a quality check to ensure your prints are recorded correctly on your FD-258 (form provided) the first time. We are known for our expert fingerprinting  services being a preferred vendor for Colorado Bureau of Investigation (CBI). 

We understand the importance of having this done correctly the FIRST time, your  and ensure your prints are AFIS ready.

Passport Photos

Even though you're not allowed to smile in the photo, we feel getting your passport photo taken should be enjoyable.  When you look at the photo you'll have for the next TEN years, we want you reflect fondly on your experience at Colorado Springs Fingerprinting


Unlike the Walgreens, Walmart, and CVS big chain/box store experiences,  where taking passport photos is just an insignificant extra duty on the store's bottom line, we wont just shuffle you through a busy store to have your picture hurriedly taken by an uninterested employee. We want your photo and memory of when it was taken to be the opposite of the "deer in headlights" glamour shot that most travelers end up with.  

What type of photo do you want for the next 10 years?  Want to review your shots before they print?- No problem.  Retakes? - As many as you want.  Want to spruce up in our private powder rooms? Go nuts!

Just remember these USA Passport Photo guidelines and you'll be set to jet
