• Filling out a fingerprint card is a necessary act for those who need a security clearance, a hand gun license or even a simple background check. Filling out these cards is also much simpler than one would think. And if there's ever any doubt in your mind while filling in the proper areas of the fingerprint card, don't be afraid to ask the person who gave you the form what you need to do.

    Getting Your Card

    Get your fingerprint card. For most fingerprint security clearances and gun permits, you will have to go to the organization in person. Present the officer, clerk or security guard with your personal identification. You must bring at least two separate forms of identification. Use your documents and identification to fill out the card with pertinent information. Your fingerprints will have to be taken by an employee of the organization.

    Filling it Out

    When filling out your fingerprint card's information (name, address, contact information) it's important that you use ink. The ink should be black ink, although some applications may accept blue ink to fill out your fingerprint card. Do not use a pencil. Do not cross out mistakes that you make while filling out the fingerprint card. If you make a mistake, you must start all over again. Make sure all the information on the card is correct and inside the small boxes. Your fingerprints will be taken by an employee of the organization that needs your fingerprints, and you should avoid using creams, oils or lotions on the day that you're going to have your fingerprints taken. Lastly, once your card is completely filled out and your fingerprints have been taken, you'll need to sign your fingerprint card. Do not sign this card before your prints have been taken, as the person taking your prints will have to witness your signature on the card.
