Testimonials - A A Live Scan Fingerprinting

Mr. Shah is the best! If everyone cared about and treated other people and customers like him America would be a better place. You might expect people to be a bit unfriendly and the process complicated but it's the opposite. I needed fingerprints for an FBI report for a visa. Not only do they do the fingerprints but they help fill out the forms, the envelopes, and everything. I would highly recommend this place to anyone who needs these kind of services, they are great!

I had a great experience here a few weeks ago. I had to get fingerprinted for work and found out that the police station doesn't do it anymore. Thank goodness I found this place. I called Mr. Shah and told him my situation and that I had to be fingerprinted before I started my first day of work on that following Monday. He was kind enough to stay open and wait for me to rush into the city. The service was great! If I ever need to get fingerprinted again, this is the place I'm coming to. The service was excellent!

Went here today to get fingerprinting done for an FBI check and I was taken care of immediately. Prints came out looking good and I was on my way in 15 minutes. The staff was very nice.

I absolutely recommend this place for photographs, notary, fingerprints. You're the best Shah!
—Makela
Shah was very friendly and professional when I went to get fingerprints taken for a guardianship application. I was in and out in about 15 minutes and the price was better than I had expected (just under $10). I don't see why I would ever need to get my fingerprints taken again, but if I do I will definitely return here. They also do passport photos and notary services.

I coordinate an AmeriCorps program with 35 members. When we have to do state and federal background checks we go to A Fingerprinting U.S Photo. The people there are knowledgeable, friendly, fast, and very helpful. Their prices are very reasonable as well. I highly recommend this business!
—JM Sprink
If you need finger printing or passport photos go to this place!! The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful.
—Deven
Finger Printing is very, very thorough & professional. The owner really knows his business and has a lot of integrity. I wish I went to him the first time I needed a passport picture for Canada. Originally I had the pictures retaken 3 times at another place until I finally found Finger Printing. The owner took the time to follow the passport pic requirements exactly. Thank you so much!!
—Jen

Amazing staff. They were so nice and very helpful. I needed to get prints done ASAP and they were able to do it no problem. Talk to Mr. Shah, he will help you get it whatever you need done. I will be telling everyone who needs the services he offers to go there.

I got my finperprints done today. They were only $9! (Compared to $35 at some other places). The location is easy to find and get to. I actually found parking on Clark Street- just 1 block down. The building is beautiful, and the service is unbeatable. Mr. Shah is a very smart man, and helped me with everything from doing my fingerprints to making sure they got in the mail for me! If anyone needs fingerprints, this is definitely the easiest place to get them done. Thank you Mr. Shah- you are a sweet man!
—Ibernst
I had to get all sorts of pictures, fingerprints and notarized documents taken care of today and I couldn't have asked for a better place to get it all done in a matter of minutes. Not only that, the price was very fair (only a fraction of what other places around charge). If you ever need to get anything done for a visa or other type of legal document, this is the place to do it. Thanks a lot Mr. Shah, you were incredibly helpful and nice!
—Joe
I was searching online for a great place in the loop to get my fingerprints done for my new job training and I must say the gentlemen at this finger printing place was very pleasant and thorough. I was afraid that he would charge a lot to have finger prints done because its in the loop, and everything in the loop seems to be marked up because of the area, but surprisingly it was very affordable and it is a very professional place, and they do lots fingerprints for all the major firms downtown in financing, accounting, law, insurance agencies, and whatever else professional field that requires fingerprinting as a criteria for hire. I STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS PLACE.
—Kevin
Mr. Shah was so friendly, thorough and knowledgeable!! He's been in business 30 years and knows his stuff. I went there based on the reviews in Google and promised I'd write a good review based on the excellent service I received. Got 4 sets of fingerprints done today. A+++
—Henry
Mr. Shah runs the cheapest and easiest fingerprinting shop in Chicagoland. Not only did save me (and my company) over $80, or give me (my fiance) a free Valentine's Day gift, but he is one of the nicest and most genuine people I have come across in quite a while. Thank you, Mr. Shah!
—Chris
Great service! All of these 5 star ratings are not exaggerations! This place was great. 1st of all, I got there right when they were closing and Mr. Shah was more than happy to help me and take the time to do things right. I needed fingerprinting done for a background check for the FBI. Mr. Shah helped me fill out the form and did my prints perfectly. The form I needed to fill out was confusing and Mr. Shah knew exactly how to fill it out. Filling it out wrong would have made the entire form useless and I would have had to order new forms from the FBI and wait for them to be sent to me. Mr. Shah really helped me!! I would highly recommend his services!! Don't even waste your time going to another place. I have heard horror stories about other fingerprinting services in Chicago!
—Abigail
When I saw the 100+ 5 star ratings I thought somebody made all of these reviews up. I went anyways and was pleasantly surprised. Getting my fingerprints was fast and the customer service was fantastic.
—Alex
I had a complicated matter to take care of involving fingerprints. Mr. Shah was helpful, informative and professional. He made a challenging situation much easier!
—Katharine Booton
Myself and 3 other people in my office needed to be fingerprinted for state insurance licensing. This establishment had all 4 of us in and out in 20 minutes, including one person who had to be electronically scanned in. Very professional and very fast.
—Grant Van Der Beken
Mr. Shah was wonderful. His services were fast, inexpensive, and he did everything with a smile. He truly loves his job and was willing to anwser any questions I had regarding my fingerprinting and photos I will need taken in the future. I will definitely use him again in the future and recommend anyone who needs it to him. Job well done!
—Andrea
I went to get my fingerprints for my medical license for an outside state and he took great care of me. I expected to wait, but was pleasantly surprised to be in and out of there in 10 minutes. And he gave me an envelope to mail it in as well!
—Laura
Mr. Shah provides outstanding customer service! I had my fingerprints taken at the police station and the FBI rejected them as illegible. Then, after reading the online reviews, I came to this location and had a great experience. Mr. Shah was so helpful and informative. He is an expert at this process and makes it so much easier, faster, and less of a hassle than the police station. He provided the fingerprint cards, made two sets for me, and even gave me an envelope to mail them in. This place is a certified fingerprinting location from the FBI and anyone needing prints should ONLY come here rather than waste their time at the police station.
—Erika
I went to this place to get my fingerprints taken for an FBI background check. The guys were very friendly and patient, especially with a customer like me that's got sweaty hands! Highly recommended.
—Gabe
I had to get a background check/fingerprints from the state as well as FBI. Mr. Shah was very helpful and even gave me an envelope and addressed it for me to send to the FBI. He even walked me to the Post Office. The customer service was amazing and I would recommend Mr. Shah to anyone who needs fingerprinting. He was amazing!
—Steve
I'm a traveling OT and many times states require fingerprinting for state licensure. Many times, this is an expensive venture. Shah (at Chicago Fingerprinting) took great care of me and did 2 fingerprinting cards for under $20! I am used to paying $25/card at police stations. Also, Shah knows how to take the prints without the ink seeping deep into your skin - it actually washes off with soap and water so you don't have to scour your skin forever to get the ink off. I know he does passport photos too, and I plan to use this service to get my photos done. I highly recommend this business. It is run by prompt, courteous, and competent staff.

This is the first time I used US Photo to get my fingerprinting done, and I believe that I will be coming back here again before my next assignment! The gentleman who worked behind the counter told me that he'd been doing this for 23 years, and his experience showed because he had my card and all the accompanying paperwork done in under ten minutes! Pleasant and quick service, and only one block west and one block south from the Monroe blue line stop was all I needed to know to know that I'll be using this place again!
—Marie
I highly recommend Fingerprinting to anyone who needs fingerprints. Mr. Shah's prices are unbeatable, he knows what he is doing, and he's very friendly. He double checked my card to make sure I had filled it out correctly. I needed 3 sets of prints and they were done in minutes! There is no need to go anywhere else or even find anyone else to do this for you because this is the best deal and best service in Chicago. My company has tried several places and after finding this one, I send everyone here!
—Sharon
Not only did Mr. Shah know the requirements of my state bar for fingerprinting, but he was also a perfectionist. On a cold Chicago day, apparently your fingers can get too cold to give a perfect print. Mr. Shah took the time to redo a number of my prints so as to get them absolutely right.
—Chris
This place was absolutely fantastic. Not only were the prices very inexpensive, but Mr. Shah was incredibly friendly and very knowledgeable. He had me laughing while I had my prints done. He also guaranteed that his prints would never be rejected. I will definitely recommend to all of my other friends. Thanks again.
