What are ATF Fingerprint Cards?

ATF fingerprint cards are validation documents that are used by the US Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) to conduct background checks on individuals who wish to purchase firearms. The cards contain the individual's name, address, date of birth, Social Security number, and a set of their fingerprints. The EFT files & fingerprinted cards are then sent to the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) for a criminal background check. If the individual passes the background check, they will be issued a firearms license. However, if the individual has a criminal record, they will be denied a license. ATF fingerprinting cards & EFT file creation are an important part of the firearms online application and purchasing process in the United States.

After trying 2 other passport photos places for my kids that were either not able to get photos taken or were too busy, we called this place after randomly seeing on a google search. The people here were so helpful, found a slot free for us, and were great at getting the kids to take nice pics. Also they were very reasonable. Will come back here first if I ever need fingerprints or notary or passport photos again.
