Do I Need a Maryland Notary Stamp?
Maryland Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
According to Md. STATE GOVERNMENT Code Ann. § 18-108, all notarizations require an official seal for authentication. Do so using either an inked stamp or seal embosser.
Specifications regarding the ink color, shape, and dimensions of the chosen implement are left undefined. Be aware other states may have such requirements specified in statute. Reference a corresponding guide if you plan to do business beyond Maryland.
An official Maryland notary public’s stamp or embosser will include the notary’s name, the words “Notary Public”, and the county for which he or she is appointed. If appointed in Baltimore, substitute “City of Baltimore” for where county would be entered. A commission expiration date can be added but is not required. However, it must be added somewhere on the document itself for the notarization to be considered complete. Contact an appropriate vendor.
