Do I Need a Wisconsin Notary Stamp?
Wisconsin Notary Stamps – Yes! Required
Unless otherwise authorized according to Wis. Stat. § 137.01, notaries must use an official seal. You can do so with either an inked stamp or embosser.
Exorcise personal preference in combination with best judgement as ink color and shape are left undefined by state statute. However, be aware the image must be reproducible under photographic methods. So pick a dark ink. And some states you plan on doing business in might have such requirements defined. Check our corresponding guides.
If choosing a circular model, the seal cannot be over 2-inches in diameter or, if rectangular, no larger than 0.75-inches in Height by 2.5-inches in Length (0.75Hx2.5L).
The official Wisconsin notary public’s seal will contain your commissioned name along with the words “Notary Public” and “State of Wisconsin.” If lost or stolen, immediately contact the Department of Financial Institutions in writing and request a seal different in appearance than the missing one.
