Our nice, clean, professional office is centrally located between Dallas and Fort Worth at 1226 N. Belt Line Rd., Irving, TX 75061. We are just 5 minutes southeast of the DFW Airport, and only 3 stop lights south of Hwy. 183/Airport Frwy. (southeast corner of Belt Line Rd. and Pioneer Dr. next to Walgreens). The sign above our office reads "Fingerprinting and Notary Services". Please call (214) 529-8157 to schedule an appointment prior to driving to our office to ensure our availability. We work by appointment in and out of the office.

We are certified and authorized to complete ink based fingerprinting on fingerprint cards or forms for most applications. We only use approved high quality fingerprinting ink pads and official fingerprint cards. We stock the blank FBI FD-258 cards which are commonly used for most applications. We can also fingerprint on all other types of fingerprint cards and forms. Most licensing and employment agencies require ink fingerprint cards. In addition, we utilize electronic livescan equipment for personal FBI reports for: Personal review, adoptions, foreign travel and residency, foreign work Visas or student Visas, and attorney requests. We can also scan and archive fingerprints to print out on multiple fingerprint cards. This is beneficial for people who require fingerprinting for professional licensing in multiple states – nursing, insurance, mortgage, etc. Get fingerprinted once rather than multiple times and order more cards printed out as needed in the future. Digital fingerprinting is inkless, efficient, and extremely accurate.

The most common reasons we fingerprint are for: Professional/Occupational licensing requirements - nurses, physicians and other medical personnel, mortgage professionals, out of state insurance adjusters, FINRA compliance for Financial Advisors, Investment Bankers & Securities Brokers, Government contract workers, FDIC contractors, Immigration fingerprinting, adoptions, legal name changes, out of state liquor licenses, Virginia & Arizona CHL, expunge past criminal records, collection agencies & debt negotiation companies, commercial and out of state real estate licensing, USPS employment applicants, Census workers, IRS E-File submission for income tax professionals, and for attorneys/law firms.

Business Owner, Neal H. Stout, is a Certified Fingerprint Technician as approved by the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Private Security Bureau #4634.
Neal is officially qualified and authorized to record fingerprints for all 50 States and for Federal (FBI) criminal background checks, via ink fingerprinting and electronic live scan fingerprinting. In addition, Neal is a commissioned Texas Notary Public.

When required and as requested, Neal can provide his official certification to you prior to conducting the fingerprinting process. Neal will provide you with the highest quality of classifiable fingerprinting available. All work is fully guaranteed. At expert level, Neal has fingerprinted thousands with an extraordinarily small classification rejection rate of less than 1%.

How was this company founded and why? In 2008, Neal saw a huge need in the Dallas – Fort Worth, TX area for a mobile fingerprinting and notary agency. The public simply did not have an easy or quick way to get their fingerprints recorded for background checks because the area Police departments only fingerprint residents of their city and only on certain days and hours of the week. In addition to this inconvenience, the law enforcement agencies DO NOT carry the necessary FD-258 fingerprint cards and most do not do Immigration fingerprinting. They certainly DO NOT provide a mobile service. Thus, Budget Fingerprinting & Notary came into existence and has been a very popular service ever since. Don’t wait in line to be fingerprinted in an intimidating jail house booking area, call 214-529-8157 for a convenient appointment today!

Prior to becoming an official fingerprinting expert, Neal Stout’s professional career spans back over 20 years in high level management in the banking and finance industries. With his high level of professional experience, and thousands of people fingerprinted over the past decade, you are guaranteed to receive the highest level of excellent service, quality workmanship and professionalism.

We have many, many references from some of the top fortune 500 companies throughout Dallas-Fort Worth that we fingerprint for on a regular basis and we can provide references upon request. Please also refer to our Testimonials.

Give us a call today at (214) 529-8157, we’ll give you fair rates and top quality guaranteed workmanship so that you can start saving time and money right away!

Bill O’Brien

We have gone to Neal twice this year to get fingerprinted for FBI background checks. Both experiences were great. We were able to book an appointment that day and the process takes about 15 minutes. The first time, Neal was able to help us (via the FBI channeler) on a weekend to get information that cleared up an issue with the Ecuadorian government. We would absolutely recommend using Neal Stout.


No one likes to get fingerprinted. This experience was great!! Making the appointment was quick and easy. Neal accommodated my schedule when I was going to be late then offered an option to go digital so that my prints could be archived. Whenever I need them again I just give him a call, pay a nominal fee and presto prints provided for whatever application I need. He takes the time necessary to ensure the prints are done right the first time and explains the process the whole way. Big thumbs up!

I arrived on time for my fingerprinting & notary appointment that I scheduled online. Owner - Neal was ready to help me immediately! I can't believe how easy this was and I was in and out in 5 minutes. I highly recommend Neal's service, and he is a very personable, professional, no nonsense type of manager.

We were required to obtain FBI reports quickly for work Visas to Brazil. Neal's office is in Irving, TX and we're in Denver, CO. All we had to do was email Neal forms and scanned fingerprint cards and Neal was able to process it the same day! We had our FBI results 2 hours after we emailed everything to Neal, and our official FBI reports the next day by FedEx. Can't thank you enough Neal for your 5 star service. Outstanding!


I needed an FBI report for a work Visa and needed it much faster than the 2 - 4 months it normally takes the FBI to mail it out. Neal at Budget Fingerprinting helped me get my report in 3 days!! What's even better is that I'm a 6 hour drive away from Neal's office and instead of driving there, all I had to do was email forms and a scan of my fingerprint cards to him to process. So simple, thanks again Neal.
