Do I Need a Notary Stamp in Minnesota?
Minnesota Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
According to Minn. Stat. § 359.03, notaries are required to have an official stamp. Embossers are not acceptable. In Minnesota, authentic notarial acts will require the use of a stamp. The stamped image of the below required information acts as the seal for a document’s admission into court.
When choosing a stamp, your ink color must be reproducible using photographic methods. This means choose a dark ink. We recommend a standard black for best success.
Your official stamp should include the notary’s name, an image of the seal of the state of Minnesota, the words “Notary Public” or “Notarial Officer” depending on the status of your commission, and “My Commission Expires [+ Date]”. It must be rectangular in form and no more than 0.75-inches in Height by 2.5-inches Width (0.75Wx2.5H). Four pieces of information total. State statute also demands a serrated or milled edge border.
