Official digital seal / Official stamping device
Posted by VT_Syrup of VT on 6/23/22 12:18pm Msg #641003
Just to be ready when electronic notarization becomes legal in Vermont, which might be around January, I made my own official stamping device.

I call it an official stamping device because, under RULONA, it isn't an official stamp until it's put into a notarized record. In the mean time, the official stamping device is the JPEG of the stamp combined with the computer and the software that would be used to put it in the record.

I made it with PowerPoint. It took quite a bit of time, but now that I know how to do it, I could create a guide that would let other people do it pretty quickly.

I don't actually have to wait for electronic notarization; I could put it in a certificate, print it, and sign the certificate. RULONA, and Vermont, do not have precise timing requirements about whether the stamp is applied before or after the signer signs. The only precise timing requirement is that the notary doesn't sign until after the signer. But I consider it more secure to use my physical trodat stamping device.

Of course, California notaries have to use an approved manufacturer and get a permit from the SOS, so they'll have to shell out the bucks.
