Do I Need a Notary Stamp in Idaho?
Idaho Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
Current for the 2018 legislative session, Idaho Code Ann. § 51-117 requires each notary to keep an official seal for stamping on all paper records. Specific language demands the use of an inked stamp. Embossers are no longer acceptable. These new guidelines for Idaho notaries are effective starting October 1, 2018.
You have a choice as regards form. Choose a rectangular or circular stamp. The circular seal cannot be more than 1.75-inches in diameter. Its rectangular form should not exceed 2.25-inches. Both must contain a milled edge or serrated border.
Choose ink color at personal discretion, while being aware the stamp must be reproducible under photographic methods. We recommend standard black. The resulting image from the stamp should be visible when making copies.
Your official Idaho Notary Public stamping seal will include your name, state-issued commission number, and the words “Notary Public” and “State of Idaho”. The words “My Commission Expires [+ Expiration Date]” may also be added but are not required; any other information included within the bounds of the stamp will invalidate it. Contact an appropriate vendor.
