  • Form 1 E-File question

    Posted by 90d4d61c2f90846ebca07af21851e6e2 on August 6, 2022 at 4:37 pm

    Just submitted my first e-file (trust) form 1 all by myself. The confirmation email says you have 10 days to submit fingerprint cards. I just ordered them from the ATF website. I feel like by the time I get them, fingerprint myself then mail them out, it will be over 10 days. Is there an easier way? Does it even come with ink? I know they have my electronic fingerprints from silencer shop considering they still have 4 of my eform 4’s. What do y’all think?

    You should have your finger prints beforehand.

    If I was you’d I’d order the finger prints from SS and then ship them to the ATF as soon as you get them. In my experience they shipped same or next day.

    The atf us the government so who knows when they will ship to you.

    I called around to some LGS in my area and asked if they had any finger print cards laying around. I think for like $10 they gave me the cards and helped me do the prints at the store using their ink. Yeah I know I could of did it for less money or free but preferred the quicker option at the time.

    Then went to ups and did like 2 day shipping or something

    Edit: to answer your question no I don’t think it comes with ink but Staples will have an ink set for a couple bucks

    I just did this and got the FD2589 cards and ink kit from Amazon vendor, 2 day Prime yesterday. Did the prints today, sent via USPS Priority Mail with Signature Required.
