New and Renewing Notary Packages
New and Renewing Notary Packages
Renewing Notary Packages do not come with a notary journal

Our New and Renewal Notary Packages DO NOT include your required $5,000 Utah Notary Bond. The State of Utah requires purchasing your notary bond which you will need to send along with your notary application.

Step 2: Order your Utah Notary Supplies from The Notary's Store but you will need to order your notary bond separately.

Each applicant for the office of notary public for the State of Utah is required to purchase a 4-year $5,000 notary bond.

Once you receive notice that you have passed the state exam you will need to acquire a $5,000 surety bond to send with your application. Please visit The Notary's Store you will be entering the Utah section for your official notary supplies. We offer a New Notary Supply Package and a Renewal Notary Supply Package which include your required Utah notary seal/stamp and officially recommended Utah Notary Journal, and other needed notary supplies at a special reduced price, but you will need to order your required $5,000 Utah Notary Bond separately.To order, enter all required information and scroll down through the page to locate the notary packages, or you can purchase your notary supplies separately. Follow the onscreen instructions through checkout and your supplies will be sent to you as soon as your order is processed, and will ship in usually no more than 1-2 business days. Once you have your official bond and have made a copy of the actual bond for your records you may proceed with step 3.

Note: An Errors and Omissions insurance Policy does not replace a bond, but will help to repay the bonding company if a claim is ever made. An errors and omissions policy is not required by law, but may be purchased as it protects the notary public and pays for any charges the notary might owe for legal fees and costs should the notary be sued.

Step 3: Submit your Notary Public Application

Sign your application. You must receive endorsements from two permanent Utah residents who are over the age of 18. Each endorser must print their name, residence address, and signature in the spaces provided on your application. Endorsers must sign your application. Mail your application, bond and oath of office form to:

Utah State Capitol
Notary Office, Suite 220
PO Box 142325
Salt Lake City, UT 84114
