Hi Mark,

I just wanted to say thank you very much for your professional service in taking my fingerprints and assisting me with filling out my forms. I submitted my application to the FBI by FedEx on the Tuesday after our appointment and had my clearance by the Friday! I start my new role this coming Monday. I'll absolutely recommend you to anyone else I know who finds themselves in a similar situation.

Thanks again,

It is not easy to get fingerprints done at any police station in Scotland - in fact it is nigh on impossible. Mark is very well organised, approachable and efficient. I needed fingerprints for a new job in the UK after living in Canada for a few years. A bit of an adventure getting there on public transit (49 bus stops away via the 44 bus from Princes St) and I was a bit late but June (Mark's wife) was still there to welcome me at their door. 

Thank you Mark and June. 

Excellent service!

Very professional service. Highly recommended.

I needed to get an Identity History Summary from the FBI in support of the vetting process for a new job. Not being familiar with the process and where to get my fingerprints taken, I luckily found Mark's website. He called me straight away after receiving my email enquiry and was able to make an appointment on a Sunday to suit my schedule. Brilliant service and would recommend Mark to anyone needing a quality fingerprinting service. Thanks again, Mark!

I needed ink prints for security checks having worked abroad for several years. Mark offers a unique service which is hard to find. The quality of his ink prints are first class and his attention to detail is admirable. if you need prints done don't go anywhere else. You will not be disappointed and the price for his service is excellent. .

Mark and June were fantastic. Very easy to arrange an appointment, accommodating to individual schedules and professional. Couldn't recommend them enough. Had all my fingerprints taken for an overseas job and the process was smoother than I could have imagined - no issues with the FBI and state police - fingerprints were read without any issue. Really appreciated the service. Hands down the place to go if you need fingerprints!!

I had been through two rejections of my fingerprints by the FBI and was concerned about how to get good ones after that. Mark was encouraging and though I have tough fingers to print, he took wonderful prints and was willing to work with me as long as it took to get them. Mark ended up having to take four sets of fingerprints but he only charged me for two, which is what I needed, and he gave me a discount on those two. It was a four-hour trip to Edinburgh by train but it was absolutely worth it. His place was easy to find from the train stop and his wife came out the door to the end of the sidewalk to meet me. I would definitely recommend his service to anyone needing fingerprints in Scotland, and I will be sure to give his information to my place of employment in case anyone else needs to get them. Thirty-five years of experience taking fingerprints counts for a lot!

After contacting Edinburgh police headquarters and being told that they didn't do fingerprinting anymore and they could not recommend anyone - just to check on the internet I pictured myself having to go down to London to get fingerprints done for my new ID book/passport. I went onto google and searched for fingerprints done in Edinburgh and this was the first result that came up. I briefly scanned through the website, found a contact number and address- called and spoke to June who was able to arrange an appointment right away. I then received a confirmation text with directions too! Finding the place was easy and Mark was organised and prepared for my appointment. We got straight down to business and the whole thing was done in not more than ten minutes. His fee was very reasonable, especially for the convenience and not having any hassle of having to wait etc. In all, the politeness and friendliness I received from June and Mark as well as the professionalism would make me highly recommend them to anyone from in and around Edinburgh who is requiring this service.

Thanks to the professionalism and friendly service of Mark and June, I was able to have my fingerprints taken which satisfied the South African authorities. Because of Mark & June's friendly and efficient service, I have just received my police clearance from South Africa. Thanks you for all your help. I would highly recommend them to anyone in a similar situation.

Mark and June were very helpful and efficient with taking my finger prints and it was a lot cheaper than flying down to London. Convenient as well as they take appointments on weekends too so helpful if you work during the week. Would highly recommend to anyone needing finger prints and someone who knows the process!

I recently got my finger prints taken by the service as the Scottish Police Force no longer has ink stations. They were very professional and friendly. The service was done quickly and efficiently. There was no question that he had done this for a number of years and was highly qualified to conduct the task.

I'm a former Moderator of the General Assembly of the Church of Scotland and had to obtain a "certificate of good conduct" from the FBI because I had spent several years in the US and needed a particular kind of security clearance in the UK. Mark and June could not have been more helpful. Without them, I suppose I would have had to travel to London. They were immensely helpful and professional. I thoroughly recommend Mark.

I had my fingerprints taken for a background check with the FBI so I could work in the UK. I just received my report back from the FBI and the fingerprints were accepted no problem. The service was very professional and Mark was very friendly. I was also pleased to find them near Edinburgh as it saved having to go down south for the service. I highly recommend them.

After almost a month of being fed with misinformation and extremely poor customer service at the police station regarding obtaining the fingerprints for RCMP criminal check I finally came to my senses and contacted Mark, and he arranged the appointment for Sunday, so I could send all the documents off to Canada on Monday. 10mins, all done and dusted! I wish I did it straight away. I highly recommend this service. Thank you Mark :)

Right from the moment I made the appointment, Mark and June McLoughlin could not have been more helpful. Despite being incredibly accessible from Wallyford station I was sent directions by text and once I was there, not only did I receive the fingerprint service I'd expected, but Mark was able to explain everything still required for the renewal of my South African passport, putting my mind completely at rest. I would highly recommend this superb service to anyone facing the red tape of SA passport renewal. Thanks!

I was asked to obtain a criminal record check from my new employer which required finger prints to be taken. Having been given no info/direction on how to obtain these I eventually found Mark's website. I received an extremely quick reply and not only did he fit me in at a time suitable for me but he also gave me more information which I needed to apply for my criminal check in Canada. Fast, friendly, knowledgeable, professional service. I would highly recommend Mark and his work to anyone. Thanks again Mark!

Mark offers an incredible service where he truly goes above and beyond. When I contacted Mark he was able to accommodate me that day. When I arrived he and his wife were friendly and efficient- I was even given a ride to the train station afterwards! Mark gave me information about how best to submit my fingerprints which saved me money and provided an extra copy to ensure the results would be processed accurately and quickly. I received my results promptly and without any issue, I know that I owe a huge part of that to Mark. I was feeling overwhelmed by getting my police check done from another country and I walked away saying Mark truly brightened the entire experience. Cannot recommend Mark McLoughlin any higher.

Mark provides an excellent service to anyone needing fingerprints in the Edinburgh region. I had my prints taken for an FBI background check and there were no problems with processing the prints. His office is easily reachable by train and not far from Edinburgh Waverly. Mark is very friendly and very good at his job. I would recommend him to anyone needing their prints done!
