Print Collection Kits

Capturing Fingerprints for Fingerprint Memorial Jewelry

There are three ways to capture a fingerprint that can be used to create a piece of memorial jewelry. 

Fingerprint Scanner
Most funeral homes have fingerprint scanners on hand for the specific purpose of capturing high-quality fingerprints for use on memorials, including memorial jewelry. The funeral home will capture the fingerprints and forward them to us.

Fingerprint Capture Kit
At Memorial Gallery we offer low-cost inkless fingerprint collection kits that make it easy to collect high-quality prints without the use of messy inks. There are two parts to each kit: a moistened towelette and a sheet of special fingerprint capture paper. Moisten the fingertips using the non-toxic towelette then firmly press the finger onto the special paper. Within seconds the print will begin to appear. The point at which the lines of the fingerprint converge in a swirling pattern tend to produce the best results. Please do not send us the original prints. Instead, take a close-up photo with a smart phone or other high-resolution digital camera. Then, either upload the image while placing your order online or email the image to us at service@memorialgallery.com. The subject should be the order number or the name of the deceased.

Existing Ink Fingerprints
If you have an existing set of traditional ink fingerprints, handprints or footprints, those will also work, but keep in mind that the quality of the finished piece will be limited to the quality of the fingerprint image you send us. Here again, please do not send us the original prints. Instead, take a close-up photo with a smart phone or other high-resolution digital camera. Then, either upload the image while placing your order online or email the image to us at service@memorialgallery.com. The subject should be the order number or the name of the deceased.

Once we have the prints, your finished print memorial jewelry piece will be shipped to you in one to three business days. If you have any questions about fingerprint memorial jewelry, give us a call at 1-877-996-8767. One of our knowledgeable and compassionate fingerprint jewelry experts will be happy to assist you. 

Photo tips: Use good lighting and sharp focus. Fill the entire frame without cutting off print for highest resolution. JPG format is best.
