Fingerprinting made clean, easy, and Eco-Friendly!

Worked like a charm for me and I have low ridge height and lots of white lines.  (I tried everything else short of having them professionally done)

You will need:
#2 pencil
1 piece of 8.5 x 11" white paper
3/4" wide clear tape

  • On the lower 1/4 of the paper, take a #2 pencil and lay down a patch of graphite.
  • Rub the finger to be printed into the graphite.
  • Tear off a 2.5" piece of tape, fold the top portion back to make it "double-sided" and secure it, sticky-side up on a flat surface.
  • Roll the "dusted" finger tip across the exposed tape.
  • Place the tape on the top part of your paper and label it to identify hand/finger.
  • It helps to take 2 impressions per finger.
  • Repeat for all fingers.
  • Examine prints under a magnifying glass to identify patterns.

Easy clean up!  Inexpensive!  Hard to smear!

I'm going to give this method a try.  If you still can't read with a magnifying glass I suggest you scan the resulting prints and enlarge them on your computer.

yeah, a few have reported their unique fingerprinting methods using a pencil

thanks for sharing yours!

Quoted Text
easy no mess way to do prints. You will need a pencil,  a couple of index cards and some clear
tape.

First use the pencil to make a nice dark patch of lead on one of the index cards. Then rub the
fingertip you want to print in the patch. Take a piece of tape and carefully cover the pad of
your finger, then remove it in one smooth stroke. Press it carefully onto the second index card
(on the blank side). Repeat for the rest of your fingers, adding more lead as needed.


Quoted Text
You can do your prints by running a pencil (big dark spot) on paper and then rubbing your fingers
thru it one at a time. I then do the CSI thingy and used a strip of tape and rolled my sons
prints on it. I used a magnifying glass to check them.

So I thought why scan the resulting finger prints?  I scanned the originals.  It takes one scan for the 8 fingers and one for both thumbs.
Be sure to press your digits firmly on the glass and, voila, perfect prints (are they prints at this time?).  The only things you don't get are the white lines, which is why I did this method in the first place because I had so many.

This is a fantastic method thanks for sharing.

Quick (possibly dumb) question. Re the loops being ulna or radial (just for my interest) once printed is the loop facing the other way to on your hand ie left hand index finger print points to the right but have I reversed it by sticking the tape down rather than printing in ink?

Sorry if that is very confusing but I can't turn the images in my mind and yes I do have to turn a road map around so that it is facing the way we are going

No dumb questions.  Just think of it as pressing your inked fingers down on paper.  You just do all four (eight) at once.  Then do the two thumbs for your second scan.  Be sure to press down firmly so the print flattens out.
The only drawback doing it this way is you don't get a confirmed indication of horizontal white lines.  You can see them but they are not that obvious.

It would be the opposite of using tape for your prints.

Thanks Denver but you have confused me more!  I am using the pencil and tape method but I think I have worked out my own question. Yes using tape does reverse the prints as you see them.

I have 8 ulna loop, 1 radial loop (right index) and one whorl.

Guessing that is the prints of an explorer.  I'm still trying to work out if I'm a teacher or Explorer and feel that I am 50/50

I had my prints done last year digitally.  Digital prints are fantastic, but what they revealed was dismal.

I got one several years ago, like the kind the CSI's use, to look at skin.  I love it!  I can see so much more and can show the client damage to their skin that you can't see with the naked eye    that will eventually surface in a few years.  This way we can work on it now, so it won't surface later.

You are going to have a great new toy.  Prepare to have fun!!!!

Hopefully those pencils do not contain lead?   The scanner option worked very well for me.  From a very loopy (10) kind of teacher (45%).

I thought all modern day pencils were graphite.  Are your's all ulna loops?

You may be right about the graphite.   And, yes, all Ulnar except from my D2 (index fingers) they are both radials.

It only reverses the prints if you flip the tape over and put it, sticky side down.
Joyfulheart's directions call for putting the tape on paper sticky side up.

Not so for me, can barely see them on my fingers so I used the pencil and sticky tape method today - lots of white lines but at least I could work out what most were - loops x 6, a couple of whorls and the other two I'm not entirely sure of , will check again after I've been doing the BTD for a few months, they might be clearer then
