Customized and Personalized Products
If you are not satisfied with any of the following items, they may be returned within thirty (30) days of purchase for a 100% refund of the purchase price:
Notary Embossing Seals
There is one major exception to this policy: If your personalized product includes a typographical error that you were responsible for (for example you mis-typed your notary name or commission expiration date on our web site), we will NOT refund the purchase price of your product. We will, however, work with you to replace the product in the least expensive way possible.
If your product is defective, it may be returned within one (1) year of the date of purchase for repair or replacement. Defects do not include normal wear or damage introduced by you. For example, if you ruin your notary stamp by refilling it with the wrong type of ink, we will NOT replace it.
If your product has been damaged during delivery to you, you must notify us within three (3) days of receipt of the package by calling 800-909-9003. Reference your order or invoice number when calling. We will arrange for the return and/or replacement of your damaged product. Note that we carefully package all shipments; so damaged products are very rare.
Notary Bonds and Errors and Omissions Insurance
Notary bonds and Errors and Omissions insurance may be returned within sixty (60) days of purchase for cancellation and a full refund of the premium paid. To qualify for this refund, you must return the original, signed bond or insurance policy to our office by U.S. Mail, along with a request to cancel your bond or insurance policy as of the date of purchase.
If you have already filed your notary bond, refunds are not available under any circumstance.
If it has been sixty (60) days from the purchase of your Errors and Omissions policy, it is no longer eligible for a premium refund in the event of cancellation unless required by law. The premium will be considered fully earned, even if your policy term covers several years. You may, however, upgrade to a policy with a higher coverage limit if one is available. In that case, a pro-rated premium refund will be calculated and applied to the pro-rated premium for the new policy. You must pay the difference.

Notarial Wording Certificates
Notary Thumbprint Pads

Returned products must be in new condition when they reach our office, meaning you must take the same care to package them that we took when we shipped them to you. Generally, this means you should use an adequate amount of packaging material such as paper filler or bubble wrap.
If the returned products we receive are damaged - bent corners, etc. - we will be unable to resell them and they will be returned to you at our discretion, in which case no refund will be made.
