Learn the basic facts about notary publics at PostNet.
What is a notary? A notary is a neutral third party that stands witness as you sign important documents. A notary’s main job is verifying each signer’s identity to avoid fraudulent signatures. They can also answer any questions you might have about the document before signing it. Notaries make sure the signer is informed and agrees to the document’s terms.
Why do some documents need a notary public’s signature? Some documents have to be notarized because they handle important matters like business ventures, legal guardianships and property transfers. Governing bodies won’t accept these documents until a notary public confirms they’re authentic, accurate, and completely filled out. A notarized document will contain a stamp or seal that only notary publics are allowed to use. Approximately 1.25 billion documents in the United States receive a notary stamp every year. People who review documents for authenticity look for this special stamp.
Where can I have a document notarized? A notary public is available at many participating PostNet locations. Call your local PostNet center to confirm that they have a notary public on staff.
How do I get an email notarized? The notary process is the same, regardless of whether the original document is digital or on paper. If you need an email notarized, your local notary public will ask you to print a copy of the email. In order to have it legally notarized, all documents need a signature with pen and ink.
