Let's Celebrate Notaries Everywhere: Announcing NotaryWeek.com

The role of notary public has roots in ancient Egypt, where scribes would record personal letters, official proclamations, and tax records. Thousands of years later, notaries continue to serve a vital public service by empowering life’s most important moments.

Notaries enable a young couple to buy their first home, or a pair of retirees to move closer to the grandkids. They help you adopt a child, and in some states, help you vote in local and national elections.

National Notary Public Day takes place annually on November 7th. Since 1975, the day has provided the public an opportunity to recognize notaries for their public service and their contributions to national and international commerce. But we feel the contributions of notaries are much greater than a couple kind comments or a nice card.

That’s why we’re celebrating notaries all week.

Notarize is proud to extend the recognition of notaries all over the country. Today, we debut a Notary Week website that will be a one-stop shop to celebrate notaries and their impact on our everyday lives - this week and every week.

We’ll be releasing new content throughout the week that celebrates notaries, highlights their stories, and speaks to an industry on the rise.

We’d also love to hear from you! Whether you’re a notary or someone who had an outstanding notary experience, we want to hear about the moments and interactions that have stuck with you. Share on social media and follow us on Twitter (@Notarize) to take part in the conversation.

Let us be among the first to thank notaries for their vital public service. We can’t wait to spend the week celebrating their accomplishments.

Check out the NotaryWeek.com website for all the celebrating we're doing this week.

You have notarization questions, we have notarization answers. While we at Notarize pride ourselves on providing helpful resources (like this blog!) to demystify notarization, we’re not lawyers and don’t give legal advice. Pro tip: always check with your own attorneys, advisors, or document recipients if you have further questions about notarization or digitally notarized docs.

How Remote Online Notarization Will Disrupt the Industry: An Inside Look From a Mobile Notary Business Owner

Disruptive technology in the modern age has made its mark in almost every industry out there. Although it creates a more efficient product or service for consumers, it can leave business owners in that space with mixed feelings about what may happen in the future to their industry.

Notary services seem to be behind the curve, as it’s still a mostly offline industry where mobile notaries go from door to door to physically take care of the paperwork. That’s where Remote Online Notarization (RON) comes in - this technology would allow for notaries to be able to deliver for their clients from the comfort of their own home/office.
