In this day and age, it is hard to do all of your shopping under one roof. Maybe Amazon will make it possible, and they are on their way. If Amazon takes over the notary business, we’ll all be in a lot of trouble. But, for notary shopping, the NNA is a resource we have trusted for years.
Although I am not a current customer of the NNA, last I remembered (information subject to change) they sold all types of products and services ranging from notary courses, signing agent courses, journals, Jurat & Acknowledgment pads, other pads for less common types of notarizations, E&O insurance, bonds, stamps, embossers, and more.
My Favorite Products
My favorite products they sold included their notary carry-all bag which had little pockets for stamps, slots for pens, a section for small books, a zipper pocket, and a mini-lock to keep it legal. California notaries are to keep their current journal and their seal(s) under lock and key you know! I also really liked their journals. There was room for additional notes about what happened at the signing, and anything unusual about the signer. You could put credible witness information in that notes section as well. There was room for a thumpbrint too which was very valuable to me as one of my thumbprints kept me out of a very long legal battle in court! The journal is attractive, not to mention thorough and I wouldn’t even consider purchasing anyone else’s.
I SWEAR by their Jurat pads. There was room for a small statement and a thumbprint as well.
I ACKNOWLEDGE that I liked their multi-purpose Acknowledgment pads. However, I don’t understand what all the purposes were. I used them to acknowledge signatures — I had no other purposes (or motives)
But, I never COPIED their copy Certification by Document Custodian. That was a form that I used, that I have never heard of another notary using. But, if your signer wants to swear to the validity of a copy, that is a form to consider.
I want to prove to you that I liked the Proof of Execution forms, but I never used them. Sorry.
In any case, if you need any type of notary supplies, insurance, education, talk to the NNA!
