How do I Collect prints? You may use a print from a birth certificate or art project. Or you may simply use any ink pad and plain white paper. Black ink works best. Lightly touch the inked surface twice and then press downward on the paper. Use more of a tapping motion than a rolling one. Take a digital photo of each of the best prints (highest resolution when 1 print fills frame without cutting it off). Please review your prints, if prints look blurry at 100% on screen, you will probably need to re-shoot with better lighting.
