Fingerprint Lifting Kits & Recording

Latent Print Backing Card


After latent prints are developed, they may be lifted and mounted on the cast-coated, high-gloss back side of our Lifted Print Backing/Sketch/Record Cards. The front side of the 3" x 5" card is used for recording case information, including a rough sketch of the location of the latent prints. Two formats are available in packs of 100:

Gloss Black Back for light-color-powder lifts, part number SIR-LPB100.
Price: $20-00

Gloss White Back for dark-color-powder lifts, part number SIR-LPW100.
Price: $40-00




Latent prints lifted with clear or frosted tape are mounted on the glossy side of the latent card. The non-glossy side is for case information and a rough sketch of the recovery location of the latent print.

  • The card may be used to accommodate a row of three or four latent prints, thereby maintaining each print in relation to its neighbor-a great help when trying to determine which hand, or the position of the hand, on the object. It can also accommodate a wider width of lifting tape.
  • The latent prints can be viewed or exhibited separately from the case data (on reverse side of card), which avoids influencing the viewer.
  • The card has sufficient space for writing the needed information, such as the case number, date, crime type, victim, address, location of the latent print recovery, the person lifting the latent and their badge or identification number. It also has sufficient room for a sketch or other remarks.
  • The white cards are preprinted with a gray ink, which prevents any of the lines or data from showing through to the other side of the card to interfere with the photography of the latent prints.
  • The Numbered backing cards can help prevent the inclusion of fabricated latent prints by providing additional documentation.
