National Fingerprint (NFp) was registered as an Ohio LLC in December, 2007 and became a C-corp in July 2010. Founder David Allburn invented the Self-capture™ Pack methodology in June 2007 while trying to fingerprint groups. He and Ohio University MBA students noticed the Packs offered value for printing individuals; on-site convenience, identification certainty, solid chain-of-custody, worldwide distribution, speed and economy. Encouraged by Ohio’s Entrepreneurship Signature Program he patented the process and developed the business with solid legal advice and financial backing.
Biometric Self-capture™ issued as a process patent, which includes not just the accountable forms and collection method, but also the back-end anti-fraud laboratory processing methodology. The Self-capture™ Packs have been in continuous use since early 2008, affirming the value proposition, the unique distribution channels, and validating product claims.
