The History of Fingerprint America

Incorporated in 1996 in Albany, New York, Fingerprint America, with help from the New York State Department of Criminal Justice Services, designed the first ever custom imprinted Child Identification Fingerprinting Kit. Fingerprint America established a partnership with Vanished Children's Alliance and the company's first client was the New York State Deputies Association.

In 1997, the company's Child Identification Fingerprinting Kits were given a "facelift" which included the addition of space for a hair sample, dental records, a larger layout and plastic protective sleeves to preserve the fingerprinting ink.

Fingerprint America outgrew its office space in 1998 and company headquarters was moved across the city to 5 South Allen Street. The company's website added secure online ordering capabilities. Child Identification Kits printed in Spanish were introduced to the product line.

1999 marked the first order from a major metropolitan police department (NYPD) and from a federal law enforcement agency (FBI). Soon after, law enforcement agencies nationwide began ordering our Child Identification Kits.

In 2000 Custom Imprinted Child Identification Kits were offered to the advertising and promotional industry. In May of that year, Fingerprint America's official corporate website was launched. In addition, WHALE Program Kits and Safety Activity Books were added to the company product line and Fingerprint America was featured during the "Smart Money" segment on the Albany, New York NBC affiliate WNYT NewsChannel 13. The segment featured Fingerprint America as a successful, locally based company that was 'making its mark' on a national level.

In addition to great company growth, 2001 was highlighted by event partnerships with many of the nations top corporations. Fingerprint America was honored to offer Child Identification Fingerprinting Kits and to assist in promoting child safety days with these prestigious clients.

2002 was a very busy and exciting year for Fingerprint America. We once again introduced a "New Look" to our current products and added numerous new products to our product line:

  • Child DNA Kit
  • ID Complete
  • Choiceprint Identification Kit
  • Billy's Safe Adventure Video
  • Billy's Safe Adventure Sing Along CD
  • SHIELD Program
  • Billy's Safe Adventure Complete Box Set

In addition, 2002 is the official launch year of our Independent Distributor Program, as well as the affiliate program which brought our products to nationwide audience at a local level.

In 2003 the ID complete kit found its place in the market we offered a new forensic quality isolation card that used a more stable collection and storage system. SHIELD got a new look and more durable and flexible helmet insert. The Safe & Sound CD won the parent's choice award.

In 2004 Fingerprint America began manufacturing and selling products to the industry as well as established a long term relationship with a national retailer. We opened up distribution in Spain & Columbia.

2005 We upgraded our computer systems specifically geared toward better customer service and offering remote access to our distributors. A relationship with Whatman Technologies was secured to bring you the best DNA Isolation Technology available. Distribution was opened in Australia.

Currently - We are launching a new marketing campaign that introduces the faces of Fingerprint America to clients and perspective clients. Solid working relationships with several of America's fortune 500 companies have been established. Distribution in South Africa was opened.
