Fingerprint Instructions

 

STEP 1 Use No. 2 pencil to make a nice dark area big enough to capture your full fingerprint impression.

STEP 2 Rub entire fingerprint area

STEP 3.  Place tape on your finger and gently rub.  This step is important.  You will get a much better impression when you use tape.  If you just rub the print on white paper, the image can smear and will not be as detailed.

STEP 4.  Stick tape to white paper.

STEP 5.  Take a photo.  Try to get as close as possible. Review your image...  make sure it is clear.

STEP 6. Submit photo via email to:  ContactAdornDesigns@gmail.com 

Tips: 

  • If your impression is too dark – immediately make another one without adding any more pencil lead. 
  • If your impression is too light – rub more pencil lead and try again.
  • Children under the age of 12 months typically have not developed detailed fingerprints.  Try using a footprint or palm print.  Send as large an image as you want. I can crop as necessary.
  • Elderly tend to lose detail in their fingerprints.  You might need to try several times on different fingers.  Alternately, use a palm print.
