Maryland Notary Seals

State of Maryland Official Notary Seal Requirements

All of Stamp-Connection's Notary Public Stamps & Seals meet the requirements in the Maryland state code. They are as follows:

Handbook for Mayland Notaries Public - Part V - Notary Public's Official Stamp
State Gov't Art. § 18-217
The notary public’s official stamp can be an ink stamp or embosser or it can also be an electronic device or process. The notary public’s official stamp must be capable of being copied together with the record to which it is affixed or attached or with which it is logically associated. A notary public’s stamping device is a public seal for purposes of § 8–607 of the Criminal Law Article
The official stamp of a notary public shall include:
• The name of the notary public as it appears on the notary's commission;
• The words “Notary Public”; and
• County (or City of Baltimore) in which the notary was commissioned. For notaries public who reside in Maryland, this will more than likely be the county (or Baltimore City) of residence. For notaries public who reside out of state, this will always be the county (or Baltimore) where the notary public was commissioned.
• Expiration date of the notary’s commission, unless the expiration date is part of the notarial certificate or affixed to or logically associated with the record being notarized; notarial certificates will be discussed in a later section of the Handbook.
Handbook for Mayland Notaries Public - Part VI - Notary Recordkeeping
State Gov't Art. § 18-219
A notary public must maintain a journal, previously known as a fair register, of all notarial acts. Each notary public shall maintain a journal which chronicles each the notary public’s notarial acts. The notary must enter each notarization into their journal, even if a notary public notarizes for the same people on a regular basis. The notary public shall retain the journal for 10 years after the performance of the last notarial act.
A journal may be created on a tangible medium (on paper, in book form) or in an electronic format. A notary public shall maintain only one journal at a time to chronicle all notarial acts performed regarding tangible records, and one or more journals to chronicle all notarial acts performed regarding electronic records. If the journal is maintained on a tangible medium, the journal must be a permanent, bound register with numbered pages. If the journal is maintained in an electronic format, the journal must be in a permanent, tamper–evident electronic format that complies with the law and any regulations adopted by the Secretary of State.
