Do I Need a Notary Stamp in South Carolina?
South Carolina Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
S.C. Code Ann. § 26-1-60 requires notaries to have a seal of office for affixation onto all notarial acts. This seal of office can be either a stamp or seal embosser. Choose from rectangular or circular models. Both are acceptable under state statute.
Be aware requirements may differ in other states. South Carolina does not specify shape, ink color, or dimensions for your chosen implement. As long as it affixes the below required information, the notary public seal will be considered official in South Carolina.
The official seal will include your name, along with the words “Notary Public” and “State of South Carolina”. The commission expiration date must be included somewhere on the notarized document and so is also often added. Contact an appropriate vendor for supplies.
