|When photographing small items of evidence such as blood spatter, hair, fibers, latent prints or any small item of evidence, you need to insert a small scale in the photograph to give size to the item being photographed. These scales come in various colors and sizes.
The 2-inch scales come in white with black text, black with white text and white with fluorescent text.
The 2 cm also come in white with black text, black with white text and white with fluorescent text.
Having this choice allows them to be used on various color backgrounds. The fluorescent scales can be used with and alternate light source.
These scales have a mild adhesive so they can be removed or lifted with the latent print. The 2 cm scales are excellent to use with latent prints.
These scales should be kept with the item it was photographed with. This way there is no doubt as to the scale used in the photograph because you have it with the item. This will eliminate any problems in court as to the scale used.
These scales come on roll of 150 for $9.50 per roll and can be purchased from the Lynn Peavey Company.
