There is nothing especially distinct about the North Dakota land surveyor seal when compared to those given out by most states. However, that’s all the more reason to take a moment or two to make sure nothing is out of order. If you don’t, you could have quite the surprise waiting for you after years of using it.

The Dimensions of a North Dakota Land Surveyor Seal

The North Dakota land surveyor seal measures 1-3/4" in diameter. In North Dakota, you can use an embosser or a rubber stamp for leaving your mark. In either case, though, this diameter should hold.

North Dakota’s board of registration for professional engineers and land surveyors for registrants also allows an electronic version. Obviously, this computer-generated seal needs to remain as it was issued, meaning you can’t modify it in any way.

The Appearance of the North Dakota Land Surveyor Seal

As we touched on, there are really only a few elements of the North Dakota land surveyor seal that you need to look for.

First, the perimeter should have a crimp to it. If you’re using the computer version, you’ll notice no difference with the perimeter.

The actual design of the North Dakota land surveyor seal chanced in 2005, so don’t compare yours to one from before this time or you’ll think there are errors when you actually have nothing to worry about.

This recent design involves concentric circles. Between the inner-circle and the perimeter, the seal reads, “Registered Professional Land Surveyor” going along the top. Across the bottom, it simply says, “North Dakota.”

In the middle of the inner-circle, at the top, it should read, “Name Here.” Under that will be your license number, beginning with, “No.” Finally, the word date is directly below this part.

Dual Seals

If you’re also a professional engineer, the typical North Dakota land surveyor seal won’t suffice to cover your services. Instead, you’ll want a dual license. Everything about it, including the diameter, are the same as the North Dakota land surveyor seal we just described. The only difference is that, across the top, outside of the inner-circle, it will read, “Registered Professional Engineer & Land Surveyor.”

Now that you know what you’re looking for, take a moment or two and inspect your seal before using it.

Being a land surveyor may be your passion, but becoming one can still be a lot of work. While having a true love for the profession will definitely help, there are all kinds of hoops you’ll have to jump through on your way to achieving your dream.

Amongst other things, this will mean acquiring a West Virginia land surveyor stamp. It may not seem like a huge deal, but you have to remember how highly regulated the industry is, meaning even something as small as a stamp is absolutely vital.

Furthermore, you should take a second to look at your West Virginia land surveyor stamp and ensure it matches the criteria we’re about to describe. Otherwise, you could end up using the West Virginia land surveyor stamp for years only to find out it was all wrong. This would be a terrible situation to find yourself in.

flag_of_west_virginia-svg

The Dimensions of the West Virginia Land Surveyor Stamp

Let’s start with the dimensions your West Virginia land surveyor stamp is supposed to have. The circular stamp must be 1-5/8" in diameter. Again, it might seem like a small matter—literally—to most of us, but someone who is familiar with the stamp will be able to notice in a moment if it isn’t the right size.

The Appearance of the West Virginia Land Surveyor Stamp

Next, there’s the actual appearance of the West Virginia land surveyor stamp. Luckily, like a lot of stamps from all over the country, West Virginia’s is mercifully simple. It has a rope border to it and then another circle on the inside that is outlined in a perforated fashion.

At the top of the stamp, between the two circles, you should see your full name just as you supplied it in the application. On the bottom, it should read, “Professional Surveyor” between two stars.

Inside the circle, “Licensed” should be at the top and “West Virginia” at the bottom. Finally, your license number should appear in the middle right after, “No.” and a space.

That’s really all there is to how your West Virginia land surveyor stamp needs to look. All it will take is a minute to go over yours, but it could end up saving you a lot of money.

As home to the city of Chicago, the state of Illinois offers up some amazing architecture, but with more than 3,750 architects currently at work in the state, it is a sure thing that even more impressive work is to come. For those currently working in the state or those who are studying, interning, and preparing for licensing, there is a single common need: the need for an Illinois architect seal embossers.

The Illinois architect seal embossers are a must have for any licensed professional in the industry. It is something, which according to state laws, will be used on the first page or cover page of any technical submissions in contracts or for approval of any work by a public authority. The Illinois architect seal embossers must meet very specific design criteria, though there are some allowances for electronic seals as well.

The usual approach for licensed architects is to use Illinois architect seal embossers or rubber stamp seals. The designs of these seals are identical with clearly outlined specifications provided by the state Board. The Illinois architect seal embossers or stamps have to 1 5/8" in diameter. The information contained in the seals will appear in two fixed areas delineated as two circles contained within the seal.

The outer ring or band of all Illinois architect seal embossers features the words "Licensed Architect" around the top of the band with "State of Illinois" along the bottom. Within the central circular area of Illinois architect seal embossers is the name of the architect and their official license number. The format of the license number must be properly done with a dash appearing between the first three digits and the rest of the numbers.  Alternately, a dot can appear after the first three digits as well.

flag_of_illinois-svg

In addition to using Illinois architect seal embossers for their documents, architects will also have to sign documents as well, and computer generated signatures are not usually allowable on sealed documents. Additionally, the seals are an indicator that the architect has done the work his or her self, or that it is has been done under their supervision by an employee or intern.

The need for seals is ongoing, and it is important to entrust the manufacture and design of such seals to groups with experience in these matters. As a symbol of professionalism and authenticity, they should be the best quality possible.

Having New Jersey notary supplies means something a little different than what it does in most states. We’ll talk about this in detail momentarily, but the rest of your duties are almost identical. As a notary public, the state of New Jersey is entrusting you to faithfully carry out your duties by confirming that any signatures you’re tasked with witnessing are legitimate. This may not seem like the most crucial duty out there, but if it wasn’t, you wouldn’t have to use your New Jersey notary supplies as often as you are about to. Being a notary means providing a very serious function to our legal system.

Keep in mind, too, that you may also be called upon to administer affirmations and oaths as well.

seal_of_new_jersey-svg

Applying to Become a Notary Public

If you want the job, you’re going to need more than just the right New Jersey notary supplies. The application process is only open to those who are residents of New Jersey. You must also be at least 18 years of age. If you make it through the rest of the application process—there’s very little to it—you’ll be sworn into your position by a clerk of the county you live in. This will entail you to a five-year term by appointment of the State Treasurer.

Once you have the official swearing in done, you’ll simply need your New Jersey notary supplies. You can then decide to use your position as part of your job or simply as a service to those in your community.

Note: unlike a lot of states, former convicts can become notaries in New Jersey. However, in order to receive appointment, it has to come with the approval of the Attorney General of New Jersey. This applies to anyone who has been convicted of a crime involving dishonesty or a second-degree offense in any state.

Your New Jersey Notary Supplies

Once you’ve been given your position, it’s time to start using your New Jersey notary supplies. In New Jersey, notary supplies are a bit different, as we mentioned at the beginning.

In the “New Jersey Notary Public Manual” it states that notaries simply have to sign and date their notarial certificates. The only other stipulation is that you must stamp it, but it stops short of saying what kind of stamp your New Jersey notary supplies must include.

Therefore, what follows is more of a general guideline of what most keep in their New Jersey notary supplies.

First, your stamp should include the date your notary expires. Again, there is no clear law regarding your New Jersey notary supplies, but generally you want this to be a permanent fixture of said stamp. Otherwise, it really won’t mean much to the person paying you for your services. After all, what would stop you from simply changing it and defrauding the person?

Your name should also appear on the stamp. This is how third-parties will be able to tell whom to speak to if they doubt the legitimacy of the signature it’s confirming.

Usually, the seal of the state of New Jersey shows up on the stamp too. Again, there are no New Jersey notary supplies laws on the subject, but generally it shows up on the far left.

Using Your New Jersey Notary Supplies

Where the law is clear is regarding how you execute your duties. As an official of the state, you must use your New Jersey notary supplies to confirm the validity of someone’s signature. This means you’ll need to ID someone before applying your stamp next to their name.

Be sure you never use your New Jersey notary supplies if you aren’t sure about who the person is or whether or not they are of sound mind. Someone being forced to sign a document or doing so while intoxicated cannot have their signature confirmed and you’re under no obligation to do so.

Becoming a notary may not take a lot, but it’s still a huge responsibility. Hopefully, you better understand what it entails now.

Though it may seem like almost any career faces limitations in a place as small as Hawaii, there are more than 350 architects at work in the islands. Recent headlines prove that many designs coming from this area win national recognition from the AIA, and job growth is expected to climb in the coming years. That means that many new architects will emerge in the Hawaiian Islands and that all of them will need an official Hawaii architect seal.

This Hawaii architect seal will have to appear on any specifications, reports, maps, plans, and other documents relating to projects submitted to the public for approval or permission. The design of the Hawaii architect seal is very specific, and only those seals that meet the guidelines will be accepted by all regulating agencies.

2000px-seal_of_the_state_of_hawaii-svg

Any valid Hawaii architect seal will be 1.5" in diameter. The circular seal is going to feature two circles with the inner circle having a 1 1/8" diameter while the outer circle measuring at the 1.5" diameter. The outer band is going to feature the words "Hawaii, U.S.A." running along the bottom area and the official name of the architect running along the top. The term "Licensed Professional Architect" will appear within the central circle, and beneath it is the license number for the architect mentioned. This must be prefaced by the term "No." and not "#" or the word "Number"

The Hawaii architect seal can be an embossing seal or a rubber stamp. There are no allowances for electronic seals at this time.

The use of the Hawaii architect seal ensures that the work has been done by the authorized and licensed architect or under their direct supervision. It is a signal of the kind of quality and authenticity that is essential to safe and successful projects of all kinds. The state has very strict rules around the use and design of the Hawaii architect seal, and groups their description and use with engineering, land surveying and landscape architecture.

If you are a professional who needs an official Hawaii architect seal for your plan, drawings, or other professional documents, it is important to obtain the seal from a reputable agency experienced in the making of these items. Special measurements, text, and designs are required and a quality manufacturer will be able to ensure you get the precise seal you need to do your work as an architect.

Some states require their notaries to go through training and take an exam before they can obtain a commission. They may even require a re-examination each time the notary wants to renew the commission. Of course, some states have no such formalities in place and ask only that their notaries meet a specific list of criteria, file a formal application (which usually means swearing an oath), and use specific items when doing their work. Ohio is one such state, and though it has a very straightforward set of requirements, there are specific Ohio notary supplies that must be in use.

Obtaining the Required Ohio Notary Supplies

You will begin to amass the appropriate Ohio notary supplies when you head to the secretary of state's website to obtain the official application. You will have to file this with the necessary fees, but the use of a surety bond is not required. In some states, evidence of this coverage must exist prior to a commission, but in Ohio, it is not necessary. Once the application and fees are paid, you can then obtain your commission and formal Notary Certificate that allows you to obtain a seal. And it is the seal that is key among all of your Ohio notary supplies. The state has a long list of specifications that the seal must meet, and they are:

  • It must feature the state's official coat of arms in 1 3/4" diameter, and it is to be surrounded by the phrase "THE GREAT SEAL OF THE STATE OF OHIO"
  • Adjacent to this will be a block of text that includes the name of the notary as commissioned, the name of the state written out as "State of Ohio", the title expressed as "Notary Public" and the date when the current commission expires
  • A seal may be an embosser or a rubber stamp, but it must be photographically reproducible

 And is that the only Ohio notary supplies you will require? Apart from your application and commission, as well as the official and properly designed seal, the only other required Ohio notary supplies are the journals you must use. State law says that your Ohio notary supplies must include a notary record book or journal. However, you are not obliged to document every transaction. Instead it is only the execution of protests that you are obliged to document.

animated-flag-ohio

However, as you are keeping a journal among your Ohio notary supplies, it may be a good idea to get into the habit of using it for all transactions. When you no longer work as a notary or you allow your commission to expire permanently, the journal has to be submitted to the county clerk in the county in which you reside. So, the journal is a must among your Ohio notary supplies.

Naturally, it will show that you did more than just execute protests. It will also be able to track such duties as:

  • Taking acknowledgements
  • Taking affidavits
  • Taking depositions
  • Administering oaths
  • Administering affirmations
  • Executing protests (these MUST appear in the journal)

Obviously, these are all very different actions, and so it is useful to keep the journals among your Ohio notary supplies.

The Quality of Ohio Notary Supplies

Because your commission is going to last for five years before you must renew it, and obtain a new seal with the updated expiration date, it is fairly obvious that you should only obtain Ohio notary supplies from the most trusted and high-quality vendors. The stamp is going to see a lot of wear and tear, and it has to print clearly to be authentic and official. Thus, working only with the best Ohio notary supplies is a wise and professional decision.

Keep in mind that your Ohio notary supplies must also include the journal for the execution of protests, as well as other transactions if you choose to document them. The top vendors of supplies for notaries often make a diverse range of journals available, along with properly formatted and designed seals. Becoming a notary is not complicated, but doing the work properly requires attention and the right supplies from a quality vendor.

Though an unincorporated territory of the United States, Guam is a busy locale with many schools, businesses and industries. There is a constant demand for professionals of all kinds, including architects. According to the laws, architects in Guam are those who have been "duly registered and licensed by the Guam Board of Registration for Professional Engineers, Architects, and Land Surveyors".

Like many other areas of the world, authorities in Guam will demand that architects meet a specific range of requirements before they can begin working in that capacity. Architects will be noted as a "registered architect" and given a certificate of that registration along with an identification card. When they are registered, according to Guam laws, the registrant will have a seal of design that is authorized by the Board.

The Guam architect impression seal is to bear "the registrant’s name, registration number, and the designation … 'Registered Architect'" (GCA Business Regulations) The seal may also display the expiration date of the registration or a space may be left in which that date can be clearly written.

482px-flag_map_of_guam-svg

The point of the Guam architect impression seal is to serve as a permanent mark on documents such as drawings, specifications, reports, blueprints, tracings, and other similar documents. Any technical submissions will have to have the Guam architect impression seal, whether being submitted to a client or a government or public agency.

When the Guam architect impression seal is used, another statement must always appear alongside it: "This work was prepared by me or under my responsible control." This cannot appear with a computer generated signature or a facsimile signature and still be counted as legal. This approach guarantees and certifies that the work done was, indeed, done by the architect or an agent under their direct supervision.

Within the laws, there are no specific design guidelines given where the Guam architect impression seal is concerned. However, the standard design guidelines of 2" diameter, circular Guam architect impression seal will apply. The circle can be split into an inner and outer band with the name of the architect and "Registered Architect" in the outermost band of the Guam architect impression seal. Inside the term "Certificate" appears curved along the top of the circle with "No." preceding the architect's number. Along the bottom, in a curved formation is the phrase "Guam" and above it the "EXP" with space for the date.

A Guam architect impression seal is essential to the work of an architect and it is best to obtain one from a trusted supplier.

If you read about architecture in Georgia, you see that it is a thriving industry. Not only an essential part of building but also a historical and artistic area of interest too, there are different schools focused on this career path and more than 1,700 architects at work in the state right now. Each of them requires a Georgia architect embossing stamp that is in direct alignment with the state's laws, and none can submit drawings, specifications or other formal documents used for permits or permissions without the right Georgia architect embossing stamp.

The design of any Georgia architect embossing stamp is detailed in the state Board's specifications. Unlike many other parts of the country, the Georgia guidelines are very rigid and demand very clear and specific language. The basics of any Georgia architect embossing stamp design include the standard size of 1.75" diameter. This is a mandatory size and it must feature an inner and outer circle contained within the seal.

The state demands that the Georgia architect embossing stamp be a rubber stamp and that within the outermost circle the following text will appear: "State of Georgia" is to appear around the upper half of the outer band and "Registered Architect" is to appear at the lower edge of the band. Within the central circle the name of the architect is to appear, centered and running horizontally. Along the bottom of the inner circle the license number will appear on the Georgia architect embossing stamp/

Very specific text is to be used in documenting the number, and "Certificate No." will precede the architect's official licensing number. The use of the prefix "RA" is optional when documenting the licensing number as well. Unlike many other states, the Georgia architect embossing stamp is also very specific about the fonts to be used. The State of Georgia text is to be Arial 10 pt, the Registered Architect is to appear as Arial 7. The inner text is to use Arial 10 for the name of the architect and Arial 7 for the certification number.

Be sure to find a trusted source when in need of a Georgia architect embossing stamp. They must meet very particular guidelines and are used in a controlled manner. They are connected directly with the reputation of their owners and as such should be accurate, legal and well made to ensure clarity whenever they are used to seal a document.

Requirements for engineering stamps in Hawaii are controlled by the Professional and Vocational Licensing Division within the Department of Commerce and Consumer Affair’s office. Most engineers fall under this office’s Code 370 provision. As of July 2015, there are 9,593 professional engineers in Hawaii. The majority of those engineers, 4,943 individuals, live on the mainland. The second largest group, 3,828 individuals live in Oahu, with the remainder being spread across the islands. Regardless of location, all engineers in Hawaii need a professionally designed Hawaii engineer seal.

Before an individual can use an official Hawaii engineer seal, the individual must become licensed by the state. Hawaii allows engineers to be certified either as civil engineers or as structural engineers. A select group of individuals have met the requirements to be licensed as both and are issued two registration numbers. Therefore, these individuals must have two unique Hawaii engineer seals and use the correct one at the right time.

 

hawaii_regions_map

Licensing requirements depend on the amount of education that a person has received. The more education the sooner the individual can receive their license and order their Hawaii engineer seal. A person who has 12 or more years of experience may take the Fundamentals of Engineering exam and the appropriate sections of the Fundamentals of Engineering Professional Engineering Exam without ever having gone to school, while the person holding a master’s degree may need as little as three years’ experience and to have passed the exam to be eligible to apply. Once passed, the individual can then apply to the state and receive their license making them eligible to use a Hawaii engineer seal. The state also has special rules for those who hold a license in another state or in a foreign country.

 These stamps must be a 1.5 inch circle with the formal name of the engineer at the top of the Hawaii engineer seal. This must match the name on the engineer’s registration certificate. In the middle of the circle on the Hawaii engineer seal must be the words “licensed professional engineer” followed by the individual’s registration number.

When you have earned the right to use a Hawaii engineer seal, you can feel very proud. That is why the seal needs to look very professional. A great place to get that seal is from Acorn. These stamps are guaranteed to stamp crisply and precisely. Additionally, the engineer will receive a complimentary eSeal in DXF, JPG & TIF files.

Like many states, Wyoming's Secretary of State is the authority responsible for appointing and managing notaries. However, you do not just call their offices and ask to be given permission to work as a notary. It requires a formal application process along with a few other steps. To begin, visit the Secretary of State's website to obtain an application, learn about the fees required, and discover the Wyoming notary supplies you will need in order to legally perform the duties of a notary.

The Full List of Vital Wyoming Notary Supplies

If we are to consider the entire list of Wyoming notary supplies and requirements, it has to begin with a look at the list of qualifications that anyone must meet before they can even be considered for a commission. If you meet those qualifications, you must then obtain the application. Before submitting it, though, you must also obtain what is known as a "notary bond" as part of your list of "must have" Wyoming notary supplies. This is a sort of coverage for professional liability and you cannot be commissioned until the state has proof of the surety bond.

Though the state does not list any sort of education requirement or mandate any exams, it does offer a self-help test for notaries. You may want to consider this a vital part of your list of Wyoming notary supplies as well.

Once you have obtained these preliminary Wyoming notary supplies, you will be granted your commission. The term of office lasts for a full four years, and it comes with a document or notary certificate that establishes the name and expiration date that must appear on all notarial acts. With this document, you can then get the most significant of all Wyoming notary supplies - the official notary seal.

According to state laws, your notary seal has to meet several specific design criteria, including:

  • It can be a seal embosser or an ink stamp
  • It must be clear and sharp, and capable of photographic reproduction
  • It can be rectangular (no more than 3/4" x 2.5" in size) or circular (no more than 2" in diameter)
  • It must have a visible border that is either milled or serrated
  • It must feature the name of the notary as it appears on their commission
  • It must feature their title written as "Notary Public"
  • The name of the county in which they maintain their office must appear
  • The state name is written as "Wyoming"
  • The expiration date of the current commission will be written as "My Commission Expires" followed by the date in the "mm/dd/yyyy" format

As the most relevant of all of your Wyoming notary supplies it is best to obtain the seal or embosser from a firm well-known or experienced in the making of such important Wyoming notary supplies. Though you are not required to use any other Wyoming notary supplies, you may also want to consider the use of a journal or record book too.

wyoming_in_united_states-svg

When you keep such a journal among your Wyoming notary supplies, it will allow you to document each notarial act you provide. In Wyoming, that is a long list of possible duties to perform, and includes:

  • Taking acknowledgements
  • Taking verifications upon oath
  • Certifying copies
  • Performing jurats
  • Administering oaths
  • Witnessing signatures
  • Noting a protest of a negotiable interest

Because each of these are very serious matters, using a recordbook among your Wyoming notary supplies makes good sense. Though you are obligated to have professional liability coverage in the form of that notary bond, when you keep track of your activities and use a journal among your Wyoming notary supplies, you create added levels of protection and professionalism.

It is important to locate a reputable and reliable vendor of quality Wyoming notary supplies as you begin doing the work of a notary. You always want to provide the most professional and trustworthy work, and it can all begin with your obtaining the finest supplies possible. Because you will need a new seal every four years (when your commission expires) it just makes sense to build a working relationship with a good manufacturer right from the beginning of your career as a notary.
