Hotline Tip: Should I Use An Embosser Or A Seal?


Hotline Tip: Should I Use An Embosser Or A Seal?

In the Commonwealth of Kentucky do you need to emboss a document or can you just use the wet stamp containing your information? – P.K., Danville, KY
Since the state of Kentucky does not specifically require a Notary Public to use a seal of office, either one would be acceptable. When using an embosser, you must make sure that the image can be clearly photocopied. Many Notaries prefer to use an inked stamp over an embosser, but you may also choose to use both an embosser and a Notary seal, to further guard against document rejection.
Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. — The Editors

But what actions are considered UPL? Take our quiz and find out how much you know about UPL and how to avoid it - the answers may surprise you.
