About TeleFingerprinting™

Revolutionizing the Fingerprinting Industry

International Fingerprint, Inc (IFp), dba TeleFingerprinting.com, is an innovative U.S.-based biometrics company; formed as a spinoff corporation from National Fingerprint, Inc. (NFp), an industry leader in expediting FBI criminal history checks required by licensing laws and privacy regulations. TeleFingerprinting™ provides the ONLY secure, patented, and scalable remote fingerprinting solution for batch submission to licensure authorities from anywhere in the world.


About the NFp Companies

TeleFingerprinting is the natural evolution of the process developed in the early 2000s by USAF veteran David M. Allburn. He discovered that instead of visiting an expensive livescan machine, people (with a 3rd party witness) could make prints themselves and send them to the livescan machine with his patented invention, the Self-Capture™ Pack and the exclusive Fingerprint Valet® Service. Through TeleFingerprinting, we're now able to provide fingerprinting virtually anywhere.

National Fingerprint, Inc. now provides fingerprint processing and submittal services for International Fingerprint, Inc., which provides sales and enrollment services. Together as the NFp Companies, they seamlessly provide TeleFingerprinting services to corporations and individuals worldwide.
