I get to know a lot of new notaries in the Texas Notary Professionals Facebook Group.
There's so much for them to learn. Sometimes the mother instinct kicks in...I think "How can I help them know how not to mess up this one little thing?"
Hopefully, this ugly yellow post will be memorable!
Dear New Notary Signing Agents,

YELLOW IMAGE AND READ IT.
Stay out of the 1" margin around your notarial certificates, especially when attached to deeds or deeds of trust and mortgages.
- Don't stamp in the margin.
- Don't write in the margin.
- Don't use half-sheets for certificates.
I don't make up the rules, I just tell you about them!
The internet inundates us with information...I'm just trying to be really loud and obnoxious about this.
If you don't remember anything else from my blog,
remember to be careful about notarizing recordable documents.
