A fingerprint kit is a fingerprint ID card that is used to capture a fingerprint or thumbprint, baby's hand or footprint. These are provided to you via mail from our Shop page. Fingerprints are captured on white cardstock paper with black ink. Take care to not smudge the fingerprints when handling the paper.
