Notary stamp or embosser?

So this question is often asked. “Which do I need a notary stamp or embosser?”. Most people know the term “Notary seal”, but aren’t familiar with the device that a Notary uses to imprint their official seal.

Do you know the difference between a notary stamp and an embosser? “Notary seal” is commonly used for embossers and stamps. Some states operate the seals as “stamps,” while others use “seals” for operating the embosser.

Notary Stamp:
Notary seal stamps are inked rubber impressions. The stamp contains the Notary Public’s name, state of commission, and date of commission expiration. Moreover, notary stamps are generally rectangular.

Notary Embosser: Notary seal embossers are hand-operated tools that press paper with an impression of your commission information — usually your name, state of commission, and commission expiration date — embedded into it. The impression can be seen on both sides of the paper, but does not stain or leave any ink residue behind. Some states require around embosser; others allow only rectangular ones. Each state maintains its requirements for the embossers used by its Notaries. An example of an embossed impression is below.

In conclusion, while they’re not the same thing, notary stamps and embossers serve the same purpose — to imprint the Notary’s commissioning information onto documents—and either one will suffice as long as it conforms to your state’s statutory requirements.
