Hotline Tip: Fixing A Bad Seal Impression

NNA Hotline Tips For NotariesYou’re at the final stages of a notarization. Everything’s gone smoothly so far. The journal entry’s done, the signer’s been identified. You stamp the document ... and the seal is unreadable.

Don’t fret. If the first seal impression isn’t clear, it’s all right to affix a second one. Just find a space near the first impression and try again. You can even turn the seal sideways if you need to fit the second impression in a tight spot. However, make sure that a second seal impression does not obscure any text or other images on the document.
