Free Texas Notary Certificates for Recordable Documents

The Texas notary certificates linked below can be saved on your computer and printed off as needed.  Always use a loose notary certificate that is the same size as the document you are notarizing when you are handling legal or loan documents.



It's true that you can probably still get by using a half-sheet or a sliver of paper, but that's a hold over from the past.  Years ago, a notary would paste a notary certificate on a document and it was often no bigger than a playing card.

Later, when they could make copies down at the public library, notaries would make four notary certificates on one page, cut them out, and use those little slips of paper to notarize document.s

In the year 2016, you need to use a full sheet of paper.

Title companies and lenders expect that notaries handling their assignments should be aware that half-sheet notary certificates are no longer useful on loan and legal documents.

All the facts are in an article  I wrote at the beginning of the year.  Please read it.  As a notary signing agent, you'll see that it's pretty important to know these things.

Article:  Notarizing Recordable Documents

Use the Texas Notary Certificates linked below freely BUT ONLY after reading this:

DISCLAIMER:  I am not a lawyer and it has been a long time since I played one on television.   But, I am really good at reading the sample forms provided by the Secretary of State, and copying/pasting the information to another document.  That's what I have done.  You should not rely on my legal expertise because I have none.
