With new regulations governing Notary Publics being implemented after September 11 (specifically, that our seals had to be photostatically duplicable), I ordered a stamp pad to be used with my embossing seal--WHAT A MESS! When my commission expired and had to be renewed, I wanted to find something more user friendly. Enter Acorn Sales! I ordered a self-inking seal. All I have to do is stamp the document and voila--A MASTERPIECE! Thank you Acorn Sales!
