Do I Need a Notary Stamp in Utah?
Utah Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
According to Utah Code Ann. § 46-1-16, a notary should keep an official notarial seal for he or she’s exclusive use. The official seal should be in the form of an inked stamp. Your stamp must use purple ink and create impressions dark enough so to be capable of photographic reproduction.
While embossers are not prohibited under Utah’s’ state statute, the raised images they create are not immediately suitable for photographic reproduction. To create official seal images with an embosser, you will need to purchase an impression inker. It will have to use purple ink. Now, the undarkened, embossed image can be made suitable for reproduction. Without an impression inker, an embosser could be used in tandem, but not in lieu of the official seal.
Although the above described process is possible, we recommend sticking with a stamp as your official seal in Utah. Get an embosser for additional embellishment.
The stamp should be a rectangle no greater than 1-inch in width and 2.5-inches in length (1Wx2.5L). To be considered an official seal in Utah, include your name, commission number, the words “Notary Public”, “State of Utah”, and “My Commission Expires On [+Commission Expiration Date]”, along with a facsimile image of the great seal of Utah. Surround everything in a border and it is complete for legally binding Utah notarizations. Contact an appropriate vendor.
