May A Notary Use The Official Seal On Business Cards?

New Hotline Resized 3Am I allowed to have an image of my Notary seal on my business cards? — UNK, California

No.  A Notary Public cannot use the official notarial seal except for the purpose of carrying out official duties and responsibilities (Gov’t Code 8207).

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. – The Editors
