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 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.
