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 notary public may utilize any bonding or insurance company of their choice. Check the local telephone directory's yellow pages under the heading "Bonds".
A notary public is required to keep and maintain one active sequential journal for all their notarial acts. Journals may be purchased through local stationary supply stores. Be sure that your journal has sufficient space for you to record the required entries. (Government Code section 8206.)
A list of Secretary of State authorized seal manufacturers will be mailed with the notary public commission packet. These are the only manufacturers that are authorized to make notary public seals.
