Notary Seal Embossers - Ideal® Brand|
||The Ideal® embosser leads the market in user share and usability.
Featuring an attractive design, chrome handle and black body, the Model M excels when it comes to crimping paper. In contrast to the cheaper Model 1, which is what many companies sell, the Model M has a deeper reach, allowing you to leave your notary seal embossment further from the paper's edge. The embosser insert - the piece in the middle that holds your seal die - is also not only replaceable, but interchangeable with the Model M desk series.
Why Would I Want a Notary Public Seal Embosser?
How Would My Embosser be Made?
- It may be required by law. Some jurisdictions require a raised seal impression rather than a rubber stamp.
- For document security. When used in conjunction with a stamp, you can help deter document tampering and fraud. Not only is an embossment more difficult to counterfeit, but many notaries use their embossers to simultaneously crimp multiple pages (e.g. a signed document and corresponding loose-leaf acknowledgment certificate). In these cases, the embosser is often used in conjunction with a notary stamp, especially in states requiring a photographically reproducible seal.
- It may be required by a foreign state/government. In some instances, you may encounter documents destined for overseas that require a raised notary seal.
- Tradition. Not quite the same as a glob of wax and an ancient hand seal, but closer than a rubber stamp, and that's kinda cool.
First, the parts for an Ideal® seal are purchased from a large seal manufacturer. They include the handle, the insert, the metal seal die, some plastic and a double-stick tape wafer. Next, your notary information is entered into a computer-based engraving program. The metal die is placed in an engraving machine and the program tells the machine what to cut. After the die is cut, it is cleaned and the black, plastic counter is made.
While there are a couple different ways to make the plastic counter (which contains the raised letters representing your seal), we prefer injection molding. From beginning to end, it will take from 10 to 15 minutes to cut and assemble your die. This is something we do in-house to expedite turnaround, meaning we can often make and ship seals the day they're ordered. If you're wondering why everyone doesn't offer that level of service, it's because the equipment runs about $20,000. Quite an investment!
