Select Fingerprint Card Printers (Grey Scale) from the Category list.
If you are unable to locate an FBI Certified printer because they are out of stock or no longer being manufactured, you should locate a printer that meets the following requirements:
Black and White LaserJet
Ability to handle custom sizes
Ability to handle card stock or “cover”
Ability to specifically select 600 dpi as the print quality
PrintScan recommends the HP Laserjet Pro 209DWE.
The HP Laserjet Pro 209DW will not work because it doesn’t require you to have an active internet connection or use HP brand toner refills. The Printscan software requires an active internet connection to print, which is why we recommend the DWE version.
