  • “First impressions are important. When you call HBI, you are greeted by a bright and cheery voice. I made inquiries about their fingerprinting services and was given clear and concise information about the process and what documents I needed to provide. Upon my arrival, I was pleasantly surprised. I guess I was expecting the place to look like the inside of a police station: Generic seating, noisy, sometimes messy and congested. However, the offices of HBI are beautifully decorated, clean and quiet. Also, though there were a few people ahead of me, they were in and out in short fashion. I was immediately greeted by the cheery receptionist and I, too, was in and out in no time. I will be sure to recommend the services of HBI.”
