Do I Need a Notary Stamp in New Jersey?
New Jersey Notary Stamps – No! Unrequired
Pursuant to N.J. Stat. Ann. § 41:1-7, New Jersey does NOT require a seal to be applied in confirmation of an oath, affirmation or affidavit. The notary public will sign the document in both cursive and print. This will be sufficient. So you do not need a stamp or seal. However, choosing to do so can be a prudent decision. Particularly if doing business in another state. Consider the requirements specific for each state by consulting a corresponding guide.
Use personal preference in combination with best judgement when deciding on your stamp or seal seal design, ink color, shape, and dimensions. What information to include is up to custom since left undefined by New Jersey state statute. Often included is your name, commission expiration date, commission number, county, and the words “Notary Public” and “State of New Jersey”. Pick round or rectangular. Contact an appropriate vendor for any custom needs.
