Purchasing a notary seal
Your seal should produce a sharp, legible, embossed or printed image that legibly reproduces under photographic methods. The seal should include the following elements: Your name exactly as it appears on your commission; and the phrases "NOTARY PUBLIC" and "RHODE ISLAND".
Your seal is your exclusive property and should not be used by any other individual. You should make every effort to secure your seal and protect it from unauthorized use.
No seal manufacturer has permission from the Secretary of State to reproduce the State Seal of the State of Rhode Island as an element of a notary public seal. If you are currently using a seal or receive a seal that contains the State Seal or any element of the seal, please discontinue use of the seal and obtain a seal containing the elements we recommended at the beginning of this section.
