Electronic Fingerprint File

Does anyone know where a person can go and get an electronic copy of their fingerprints to submit with the new eForm-4? Basically a valid .EFT file.

Other forums have suggested printscan:

https://www.printscan.com/services/f...ard-conversion

I have never used them.

I have seen other companies offer the service, but it was only for .gov applications like DOD contractors, clearance etc.

Many companies do this "behind the curtain" (https://www.nbinformation.com/industry/swft.php, see bottom "Upon receipt, fingerprints will be converted to an FBI- OPM/DSS SWFT compliant EFT file. ") but they don't offer it to the general public

Thanks, will give them a call and see if they actually offer the service and what it cost.

I have sent support an email. Apparently the only way to get a hold of them unless you wait hours on hold.

I did see somewhere where they said they were not willing to email fingerprints at the time of the post. I will let you know what they say when I get an answer from support.

I have called ATF to get an answer from them but they have no idea. They say the system is new and they are still learning.

Will post whatever I find out here.

What software are you talking about that was updated? The eForms?

I am trying to find a place to go and get an electronic copy of my fingerprints in a correct file format for uploading for eForm-4 submissions.

So far I have been transferred 4 times through UPS and they have NO clue. PrintScan is apparently a third party company(by a different name) they do not know. They do electronic archiving of your fingerprints, as an option, at a rate of $25 for 1yr of storage and $100 for 5yrs of storage. Not sure yet if the file is retrievable by the client to use or if the format is correct. At this point I might just spend the money and find out.

Thoughts? Input?

yeah. or the law. "We have no idea and are making it up" seems to be the answer to all ATF questions.

I dont know about printscan. I do know that what the ATF does with your hard cards is scan them and electronically submit them. There is no reason they could not take a pdf or jpeg file (scanned with the proper resolution) and convert them themselves. Except basic government ineptitude.
