A notary stamp is a tool that a notary uses to perform his or her notarial duties. A notary stamp placed on a document indicates:
The notary is commissioned by his or her state to perform notarial acts.
The signer was in the physical presence of the notary at the time of the notarization.
The notary performed the verbal ceremony, and the signer acknowledged or swore to the truthfulness of what he or she was signing.
The identity and competency of the signers was verified.
