Some students have difficulty with the clarity of their prints. American Data Bank suggests that prior to having your finger prints rolled you should:
- Wash your hands less frequently for two or three days before having your prints rolled
- Put on hand lotion before having the prints rolled
- Ask the officer/official rolling your prints to spray a ridge building or softening agent on your finger pads before they begin rolling your prints
- If you feel your prints are in good shape but you are concerned about how the prints were physically rolled it is recommended that you go to another location for your next set. You can go to a police station or any security company that offers fingerprint rolling services. Note: the City of Philadelphia will not roll fingerprints.
