Do I Need a Notary Stamp in North Dakota?
North Dakota Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
N.D. Cent. Code § 44-06.1 requires all notaries to obtain a stamping device approved by the Secretary of State. Embossers are unacceptable. Your official seal will have to be an inked stamping device.
Exorcise personal preference in combination with best judgement when deciding on ink color and shape for the chosen implement. Any color and round or rectangular models are accepted. However, the image created by your seal MUST be reproducible under photographic methods. Pick a dark colored ink.
If choosing a circular form, make sure it is no more than 1.625-inches in diameter (expressed otherwise: one and five-eighths; 1-5/8″). The rectangle should not be bigger than 0.875-inches (seven-eighths; 7/8″) in Height and 2.625-inches (two and five-eighths; 2-5/8″) in Width [0.875Hx1.625W].
To make your seal North Dakota official, include the notary’s name, commission expiration date, and the words “Notary Public” and “State of North Dakota”. When impressed, the stamp contents as just described should be surrounded by a border. Contact an appropriate vendor for supplies-based solutions.
