New Notary Stamps: Smaller, Easier To Use

Elite Stamp

The NNA’s Style Stamps and Elite Stamps received a makeover this month with new, improved features that make them easier to use. The changes came about because the stamp is the one tool that Notaries use every day. At the NNA, we are constantly working to improve the tools we offer to better help you perform your duties as quickly and easily as possible.

The Style Stamps have been redesigned to fit the hand more comfortably, making it easier to use, while keeping the seal imprint size the same as before. The stamps also have a transparent base that lets Notaries see exactly where the wording is positioned. The smaller Elite Stamps were given a sleeker design with an easy-to-grip handle.

Both models were redesigned with a new slide-out tray that makes it easier to refill ink while retaining the advanced stamping surface that releases ink evenly to help avoid smudged or incomplete imprints.

Don’t forget that our new website includes the option to rate and review products — we encourage you to contact us with your thoughts and suggestions.

David Thun is an Associate Editor at the National Notary Association.

I love this idea. Do we have to wait until we renew our commission before we can get one?

I completed my renewal in August, which expires in January 2015, and have not received a certificate for me to order my stamp. How long do I have to wait to receive the certificate so I can place my stamp order?

Do you have notary seal stamp with the stamp pad inking and how much it costs?

Hello! You can find information on our Notary seals here:

When I renewed my commission this year, my stamp printed my first, middle, and last name, which made the stamp very large. I normally only sign my first and last name. Will I need to now sign first middle and last names on certificates so that it matches the stamp?

Hello. To help us answer your question, can you please tell us what state you are commissioned in?

I am commissioned in the great state of Texas. Thank you

National Notary Association

Thank you. In Texas, you must sign your name in the same way it appears on your commission. Your name as it appears on your stamp is how you are commissioned. This being the case, you will need to sign your first, middle and last name when signing as a Notary.

In the state of Texas, can we use other ink colors besides black for our notary stamps?

National Notary Association

11 Mar 2022

Hello. You must use an ink color that is photographically reproducible: “The seal must be affixed by a seal press or stamp that embosses or prints a seal that legibly reproduces the required elements of the seal under photographic methods. An indelible ink pad must be used for affixing by a stamp the impression of a seal on an instrument to authenticate the notary public’s official act” (GC 406.013[c]).
