    Fingerprinting at home...kits?

    I have been looking for a kit to do my own fingerprints at home.
    I see some "boards" on Amazon and EBay that are ~$100 and it consists of a $10 card holder and a $20 inkpad mounted to a thin board with rubber feet.

    This is just absurd...$100 for $35 in parts. Pfffft.
    I don't mind spending money, I just want it to be "well spent."

    Does anyone have a good recommended setup that they have actual hands on use with?
    I know you LEOs have thoughts on this, please chime in.

    Anything available on Amazon? (I have gift cards burning a hole in my pocket.)

    I got the cards free from ATF. I need the ink pad myself. I plan to make changes to my trust and add another 22LR form 4 & maybe another form1 item. /sub'd

    I ordered cards from ATF - SEVERAL days ago - and they've yet to show up. I'm in a spot right now, today, that i NEED cards. I may have to break down and visit the PoPo Dept instead. :-(

    You can borrow a card from me if you are in a pinch.

    I thought this was going to involve superglue and an aquarium....

    You just need an ink pad.

    If you have good dexterity in your fingers you don't need a card holder

    So what I am reading is:

    1. Buy a 10 or 25 pack of cards
    2. Buy an inkpad
    3. Take my time and be steady
    4. Skip the "Kit" and save $$$

    That about right?
