I am a notary in the state of Texas. When looking at book the fees are listed accordingly. Why is it that UPS or FedEx charges 2 to 3 times the amount for a standard notary signature. Is that the even legal?

Hello. Notaries must follow the state's maximum fee schedule when charging for notarizations under law, no matter who the Notary's employer is.
