Originally published in 2016

Are you a Notary? Do you want to join some Notary organizations? There are many of them out there. Some help educate Notaries while others have helplines or hotlines. Some sell Notary supplies while others help Notaries advertise their services.

123notary.com has been around since 1999 and helps Notaries advertise their Mobile Notary services online. Title, Escrow, Signing Companies, Attorneys and individuals love using 123notary to find some of the best trained and most experienced Notaries anywhere. 123notary also sells loan signing courses and has a very entertaining and informative blog. Check out their list of signing companies with reviews to see who you should and shouldn’t be working for.

National Notary Association
The NNA has been around since 1957 as a California Notary Association to help Notaries with educational resources and tools. In 1964 it became a National Association. NNA sells Notary supplies, errors & omissions insurance, education to help pass the Notary exam and become a signing agent, andmore… Advertise your signing agent services on signingagent.com

Notary Rotary
Notary Rotary has been around for decades and offers a very potent way for Notaries to advertise their services. They also sell seals, and E&O insurance. Signing Agents can place an add and get found based on how close they are to the zip code being searched for.

This organization makes it easy to find newer Notaries who work for cheap as well as providing a system for downloading documents. More seasoned Notaries are complaining that SnapDocs is contributing to the lowering of fees in the industry. We recommend this organization for newer Notaries who want to get their foot in the door.

American Society of Notaries
ASN offers a phoneline for technical support just in case Notaries have a question while on the job. They also sell Notary supplies and more.

American Association of Notaries
Buy your stamps from the AAN!

Notary Café
Notary Cafe is a smaller directory of Notaries that seems to specialize in the more serious Notaries. We do not have records to show how popular their directory has been in the last few years, but they have been popular for a long time.

Pennsylvania Association of Notaries
Need help becoming a Notary in Pennsylvania? Try this organization.

California Association of Notaries
This is yet another Notary directory.

Why the Notary industry went South




  1. The American Association of Notaries is the second largest membership group for notaries in the USA. It offers a low cost membership, which gets you a newsletter, access to an archive of back issues, discounts on supplies, and other benefits. They also have a directory where to can list your services.

    The American Society of Notaries offers similar services, only they don’t sell insurance.

    You left out the Notary Law Institute, which is a great source of information on the legal aspects of being a notary.

  3. Don’t where you got your information on SnapDocs; I have been a NSA for 19 years, and, my highest paying customers are all on SnapDocs.

  4. I want to take some signing agent classes from the nna but I checked the better Business bureau and they have the worst rating I’ve ever seen 🙁
    I’m worried. Should I be?
