Valley-Sierra Notary and Insurance
All orders received prior to 10:30 AM PST are processed the same day we receive them. If your order is received after that timeframe we will process your order either that same day or the next business day. If you only order a Bond (with or without E&O Insurance) or notary supplies (not including seals, stamps or embossers or any other custom items) and the order is received by 10:30 AM PST it will be shipped out the same day. If you order a notary seal/stamp, embosser or a custom item we will make it on-site usually within 1-3 business days. However, we cannot ship a notary seal/stamp or embosser until we receive your original Certificate of Authorization to Manufacture Notary Public Seals. The time it takes for us to ship out your order will depend on how fast you can get your original Certificate of Authorization to Manufacture Notary Public Seals to us. Most orders are shipped within 24-72 hours if your original COA is sent to us the same day you place your order.
Yes we can! We must receive your order no later than 10:30 AM M-F (excluding holidays) in order for us to be able to ship the bond out same day.

The fee is $15.00 to send the bond via 2-Day shipping, or $25.00 to ship it Overnight. Your order must be marked clearly for the expedited shipping.
