We used a computerized fingerprint machine and then printed out the fingerprints on a blue card for those who just needed a set of prints, such as LE applicants and new hires for the DA's office. Criminal prints were electronically sent to the FBI and CODIS. The only time we used ink was when the print machine was down.
