Notary Stamps & Seals

The name on your Colorado notary stamp or notary seal  must exactly match your name on the notary certificate including any middle initials if applicable. The notary is responsible for using a seal that is compliant with the law. A notary’s commission expiration date is not required to be on the stamp/seal. Notarys may hand-write their commission expiration date in their notarizations or order a separate stamp for the date. If a commission expiration date appears on your stamp/seal, it must be outside of the outline of your notary stamp/seal.
