Do I Need a Kentucky Notary Stamp?
Kentucky Notary Stamps – No! Unrequired
According to Kentucky Revised Statutes 423.010-423.990, notaries are NOT required to have an official seal of office. Notarizations in Kentucky are regularly performed without an official seal. However, purchasing a stamp or seal embosser can be a prudent choice. Our corresponding guides have requirements specific to each state you may plan to do business in.
If deciding to use a notarial seal, there ARE specific guidelines governing what information must be included. At minimum, the stamp or seal embosser should contain your name and notary public title such as “Notary Public – State at Large” or “Notary Public – Special Commission.” Additional information such as Notary ID or commission expiration date can also be included. Use personal preference in combination with best judgement as ink color, shape, and dimensions are left undefined by state statute. Contact an appropriate vendor for supplies solutions.
