How to Order a Notary Stamp?

What do I need to do to order my Notary Stamp?

Each state has its own set of requirements pertaining to the information to be on the notary stamp, size of the notary stamp and even ink color. Under each state, at the top of the page you will see a short description on what that state requires to be on the notary stamp and or notary seal along with any other items that may be required to have. Before ordering, it is best to follow the guidelines below:

  • It is best to make sure that you have received your notary commission certificate and have taken the oath of office that is required by your state's notary laws.
  • Find out from your secretary of state what all information is required on your notary stamp or notary seal. You can find this information at the top of the page under each state listed above.
  • When you place your order, be sure to check to make sure your name matches the name that is on your notary certificate along with the expiration date and any other required information.
  • After you receive your order for notary supplies, double check to make sure that all of the information on your notary stamp or notary seal matches your certificate. Please contact us if you find any discrepancies. 

How much do notary stamps and a notary seal cost?

Notary stamps are relatively inexpensive if you want just your simple notary stamp with the basic information. Out notary stamps start at $15.00 and go up from there. We do offer a lot of notary supply kits in different colors and styles that are very popular and come with everything you will need to notarize your documents. 

Do I need to buy a notary stamp or notary seal?

For the most part, pretty much all states require notaries to make an impression of their notary stamp close to the signature on all documents they notarize. A notary stamp is a very important item that a notary can have when performing his or her duties. We have a large selection of notary supplies for each state that conforms with the states guidelines.

What color ink should I order with my notary stamp? 

There are only a few states that have special requirements when it comes to using a specific ink color. Unless otherwise noted upon our site, the most popular color that we sale is Black Ink followed up with Blue Ink. Unless your state has restrictions, we can also make your notary stamp in Red Ink, Green Ink or Purple Ink.

What are some of the common notary supplies I should have?

  • Notary Stamp and Notary Seal 

Typically, a notary stamp or notary seal is a requirement in every state. Ordering your notary stamp is usually one of the last steps to becoming a notary public. Once you passed the state test (if your state requires this) and paid any fees, usually you will receive information in the mail from seal manufactures to order your notary stamp and or notary seal. These vendors will sometime offer notary supply packages that will have a notary stamp, seal, notary journal, inkless fingerprint pad as well as other items. It is recommended that you order an extra notary stamp incase your stamp were to be destroyed or lost. We offer the option with many of our notary stamps to add an extra stamp at a discount. This is a good idea because having to replace a notary stamp can take a few days to a week to be made and shipped.

Depending on some states, if a notary loses their stamp, they must send a letter immediately to the Secretary of State explaining the situation on what happened as well as a copy of a police report. In addition, a letter should be included with your name, notary commission number (if applicable) and your signature. Upon this request, the Secretary of State will issue a duplicate certificate so you can have a new stamp made.

Keep in mind, every day without a stamp may be a day you are not in business. If you have to go through the above process, this could take weeks!

  • Notary Journal

Not all states require a notary journal, however, it is highly recommended that you keep one to record your entries. This will help you stay organized when you perform any notarial acts. Having a journal can be extremely important if you were to ever be accused of performing a notarial act incorrectly. If this were to happen, a notary journal can be great support in your defense. It is also important to keep the journal in a safe and secure place. Your notary journal will have sensitive information that needs to be protected. It can be recommended to keep your journal in a locked drawer or safe. If you much travel with your notary supplies, it is best to keep them locked in your truck or in a secure case in your vehicle. 

 Tip: When recording the fee in your journal, only include the charges for the notarizations. Do not include any travel charges.

  • Notary Bond

There are many states that require you to purchase a notary bond (surety bond). These bonds exist to protect the public from mistakes that the notary can make when performing their legal duties. You can purchase one of these on our website.

Notary bonds are a layer of protection for people who need services provided by notaries.

If a notary were to perform any notarial acts that would lead the customer to suffer a financial loss, the person can file a claim against the notary bond.

  • Notary Errors & Ommissions Insurance

There is not a limit on the amount that a notary can be sued for. Therefore, because their signature and stamp are on many legal documents, notaries can be named in lawsuits. These legal costs can be expensive even if the notary has not done anything in the wrong. A notary is obligated to retain a lawyer to respond to any lawsuits that they are named in. This is why it is recommended to consider purchasing an Errors and Omissions insurance policy to cove any legal costs that may be incurred.

If you are a signing agent to approve loans for a major title company, you may be required to provide an E&O policy of 500k. On the other hand, if you are taking orders from a signing service, this service may carry the policy to satisfy this requirement. However, it is recommended to have an E&O policy of at least 50k. These policies can be offered with different deductibles and premiums. You can see here what we offer if you would like to purchase an E&O Policy from Presto Direct. 

  • Inkless Fingerprint Pad

In many states, a thumb print is required for certain transactions that involve real property. There can be fines for failing to provide this requirement. If your state requires this, we do sell Inkless Thumbprint Pads (LINK) at a reasonable price. In addition to the journal entry, the thumbprint provided evidence of a properly executive notarial act performed. This can protect you as a notary if any questions may arise at a later time.

 Pro Tip: Have a least one extra inkless thumbprint pad if you notice the prints are getting lighter.
