Each notary must obtain a seal at his/her own expense. The seal may be either a stamp or an embosser. An embosser crimps the paper, the stamp inks it. The seal consists of the Ohio state seal within a circle one inch in diameter. It shall be surrounded by the words "notary public," "notary seal," or words to that effect, the name of the notary public, and words "State of Ohio." The notary's name may be omitted from the seal if the name is legibly printed, stamped or typewritten near the notary's signature. The seal is not required to have a county name on it, as any Ohio notary commission is good in any Ohio county. the seal can be purchased at the office supply store of your choice.
