Do I Need a Notary Stamp in Hawaii?
Hawaii Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
Current as of 2018, Haw. Rev. Stat. § 456-3 requires notaries public to keep in constant possession a seal of office to authenticate all notarized documents. Do so using either a stamp or embosser. Since the stamp is considered a facsimile of the engraved seal (its legal equivalent in size, shape, proportion, etc.), it too must be in a rounded form. The circular seal of office cannot be more than two-inches in diameter. It should contain a milled edge or serrated border. Choose ink color at personal discretion, while being aware future dictates may call for reproducibility under photographic methods.
