IDEA: Thinking outside of the box with SmileBox Marketing

This is an example of a way to market notary services with SmileBox.  You won't want to have all the SmileBox advertisement showing, so take a look at this:  Make your SmileBox brochure into a YouTube video.

Goodbye to my Granddog Ty...sure will miss him.

This has nothing to do with notaries, except that I think 90% of notaries have loved a pet like a family member.

Yesterday, we said goodbye to a sweet old dog.  Seems like just yesterday he was a baby.  It was ten years ago and I was just getting my notary business kicked off.  The nostalgia of his babyhood is mingled keenly with my first efforts at being a notary signing agent.

Ty, you have been well-loved.  Chase balls in the surf at sunrise, old man.



If the video above doesn't work, Ty's tribute is also here.

Attorney lambasts Section 41-313 of the Arizona Revised Statutes (Excellent article, even if from 2011)

This 2011 article is quite worthy of AZ notaries' attention! Get legal insight on this unhandy set of provisions added to 41-313 in AZ notary law.

"The new law added the following provisions to Arizona Revised Statutes Section 41-313:
C.  If a notary attaches a notarial certificate to a document using a separate sheet of paper, the attachment must contain a description of the document that includes at a minimum the title or type of document, the document date, the number of pages of the document and any additional signers other than those named in the notarial certificate."

Lawrence S. Huffman: Do it right

Gotta love the judge mentioned in this article!!

At some point in their lives, most adults have been required to produce a document on which their signature has been notarized. Probably the commonest occasion is when the person sells an automobile and signs the back of the title. That signature must be affixed in the presence of a Notary Public under oath. It would be rare that the correct procedure is followed, however. 
.................
Not one to create a problem without offering a solution, Judge Davison got some booklets about qualifications, duties and powers of Notaries from the Secretary of State’s office and gave one to each applicant with study instructions.
