Q: My fingerprint forms say I need Live Scan Fingerprints. What is Live Scan?
A: Live Scan Fingerprinting is a newer technology, and method, that allows us to capture inkless fingerprints. Fingerprinting Express has the ability to print out Live Scan fingerprint cards and we can also send the cards electronically to the State of Nevada and the FBI.
Q: What is the difference between Live Scan fingerprints and ink fingerprints? What is Electronic Fingerprints?
A: Electronic is the method the fingerprints are delivered to the State and the FBI when the fingerprints are taken via Live Scan Fingerprint Machines. Ink fingerprinting is the old ink method to capture fingerprints on fingerprint cards, the ink method may not be sent to the State and FBI via electronic or email methods… The ink cards have to be mailed in which will take longer for processing. Fingerprinting Express offers all fingerprint methods including ink, inkless, Live Scan, manual and electronic submission methods.
Q: I was just fingerprinted last month; do I need to be re-fingerprinted?
A: Chances are the answer is YES, you will need to be fingerprinted again. If you are being fingerprinted for a different industry or reason the answer is “YES”. The only circumstance you will not need to be fingerprinted again is if you are in the exact same industry, requiring the same NRS (lawful) reason why you have to be fingerprinted, and you have processed a fingerprint background check, in Nevada, within the last six (6) months. If this applies to you, you may fill out a “Department of Public Safety Duplicate Response Form”, and request the State of Nevada share your results with the new company. Please be advised the State may not share these results and may request you to get re-fingerprinted… Example: if you were fingerprinted for Real Estate and need to have fingerprints done for Contractors Board you will need to be re-fingerprinted. If you were fingerprinted to work in a group home and are moving employment to the same exact type of group home, and you were Live Scan fingerprinted in the last 6 months, you may qualify to use the Duplicate Response Form.

We offer one stop shopping for Teachers in Washoe County, other counties and other states. You can pick up the money order you need to submit with your fingerprint cards, get your Department of Education Application Notarized and your fingerprints done at one place: Fingerprinting Express!?
Q: Where can I find my ORI and OCA numbers?
A: You need to contact your regional coordinator, hiring manager or state fingerprint department to obtain those numbers. It will start with an NV if located in Nevada.
Q: What is the difference between Live Scan electronic fingerprints and Live Scan fingerprint cards?
A: The difference is the way the fingerprints are submitted to the State and FBI. Live Scan fingerprints are captured via a digital image that can be transmitted electronically; this provides for a faster and more accurate fingerprint collection process. It is also the same technology to capture the fingerprints inkless. Fingerprinting Express has the ability to print the Live Scan fingerprints on the cards if you do not require them to be electronically transmitted to the State of Nevada and the FBI.
