Maintaining Your Texas Notary Stamp and Notary Seal Embosser

  • How do I reink a Trodat notary stamp?

    You can purchase replacement ink pads from the American Association of Notaries. Refill ink should only be used if it is the same brand as your Texas notary stamp. After reinking, make a few test impressions to ensure that the notary stamp is properly inked. Be sure to destroy any test impressions. Click here to view a video on how to replace the ink pad on your Alaska notary stamp.
