A notary public is required to purchase and file an official bond with the county clerk's office in the county where their principal place of business is located within 30 calendar days from the commencement date of the commission. (Government Code section 8213.)
A list of Secretary of State authorized seal manufacturers is mailed with the notary public commission packet. We are an approved Manufacturer.
