Do I Need an Alaska Notary Stamp?
Alaska Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
According to Alaska Stat. § 44.50.064, all notaries public should keep an official seal as their exclusive property while ensuring no other person has use of the official seal. He or she can do so with a stamp or embosser. But be aware that state statutes require all seal impressions be photographically reproducible. An inked stamp is already photographically reproducible; if using a seal embosser you will need to purchase an impression inker in tandem. The seal impression inker darkens the raised image created by an embosser, making it ready for reproduction.
The color of ink used in either the stamp or seal impression inker can be anything as long as, once again, you guessed it, the seal can be reproduced under photographic methods. So use best judgement when determining what color of ink you buy.
Seal shape can be either rectangular or circular. The rectangular form cannot be more than 1-inch in width by 2.5-inches in length. The circular form cannot be more than 2-inches in diameter.
Your required Alaska seal must include the notary public’s name exactly as indicated on the commission certificate and the words “State of Alaska” on the chosen stamp or embosser. However, customizable information such as commission expiration date and number can be added if desired. Regulations adopted by the lieutenant governor can also be an electronic stamp form.
