Step 1: Submit your Notary Application
You will be submitting your notary application to the Office of Probate Judge of your residence county. Fax or mail a copy of your Letter of Appointment from the Office of Probate Judge.
New and Renewing Notary Packages
Renewing Notary Packages do not come with a notary journal
Step 2: Order your Official Embossing Seal and Notary Journal from The Notary's Store, but you will need to order your required $25,000 Alabama Notary Bond separately.
Each time you apply for a notary commission you must submit a new $25,000 Alabama notary bond. The notary bond is a specific document that must be completed and submitted as part of the application process. No bond or insurance that your employer is already holding will function as your notary bond. It will always be necessary for you to acquire a new bond and to submit it with each application.
After you receive your Letter of Appointment please visit The Notary's Store, you will be entering the Alabama section for your official notary supplies. We offer a New Notary Supply Package and a Renewing Notary Supply Package which includes your required Alabama Notary Embossing Seal and Alabama Notary Journal, and other needed notary supplies at a special reduced price, but you will need to order your required $25,000 Alabama Notary Bond separately. To order products separately, enter all required information and scroll down through the page to locate any other products you would like to order at this time.
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. Errors and Omissions 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.
