Notaries need a vast array of supplies. Some of the supplies they typically use are embossers, seal impression inkers, and notary record books. One must-have tool for a notary is a stamp. Take a look at this list of three different types of notary stamps.
A traditional notary stamp consists of a stamp with a wooden handle and a separate ink pad. Traditional stamps are very inexpensive. Moreover, they are quite easy to use. Some prefer to use traditional stamps because they are very agile while others refrain from utilizing them because they can cause an inky mess and ruin pieces of clothing and furniture. There are people who gravitate towards these stamps because they like to utilize things that have an old-fashioned aesthetic.
Self-inking notary stamps are known for producing neat and clear impressions. Some of them can yield over 10,000 impressions before needing to be re-inked. These stamps are fairly bulky and not as easy to maneuver as traditional ones. However, they do have an internal pad; this makes it harder to stain one’s fingers or fabrics with them. It is important to note that self-inking stamps can be just as affordable as traditional, wood handle ones.
Consisting of both an ink cell and impression pad, pre-ink stamps have been lauded for their longevity. Many can generate around 50,000 impressions before they need to be re-inked. Those who have to stamp multiple documents over a short period of time will usually reach for a pre-inked stamp. Some pre-inked stamps have designs that make them just as agile as wood handle stamps. One should consider adding pre-inked stamps to their collection of notary supplies.
Without stamps, most notaries would not be able to do their jobs. These sorts of supplies are vital and will remain in demand for years to come.
