Notary Seal Supplies

Notary & Embossing Seals And Stickers

As described by the New Zealand Society of Notaries, “A notary public uses an embossing tool (seal) to verify their presence at the time the documents were signed”. At Stamps Plus, we craft custom made embossing/ notary seals from scratch, or manufacture replacement sets. We also supply a variety of the notary seal stickers in various colours and sizes.

When it comes to the issue of ‘design’ and ‘format’ of a notary seal, the only mandatory requirements in New Zealand are as follows; the seal must incorporate the notary’s full name and incorporate the words ‘Notary Public New Zealand’. These stipulated elements are usually found in the text around the perimeter of the seal. In the middle of the seal, an image or motif is usually included too. For the image or motif, so long as there are no copyright laws being transgressed, there is room for some individualism and personal branding. We at Stamps Plus have featured images such as birds, fish, mountain profiles, city skylines and more. When commissioned to craft a notary seal, we usually ask a few questions as follows: Is the person’s personality more conservative or less conservative? Does the person have a favourite hobby, past time, sport, place or image? Once these have been established, it helps our design team to make a few recommendations. Stamps Plus offers a design service to notaries public where the first 15 minutes of design time is done at no charge.

An interesting feature of the notary seals we craft at Stamps Plus is that we do not use any metallic material in crafting the die set. We use a material called delrin which allows for us to exercise even more creativity with our advanced laser engraving technology and which will not tear the paper. The material is highly durable and does not oxidise over time. A short video clip linked below illustrates the process of crafting these unique delrin die sets.

The actual embossing/ notary seal presses we supply are exceptionally sturdy and durable, whilst at the same time a fraction of the weight of the older cast iron versions.

Building Brand Loyalty With Stamps

Stamps Plus Can Help You Build A Loyalty Program

Have you considered using a loyalty card program as a marketing strategy? Loyalty cards encourage your customers to continue to come back to you to use your products and services. They share their current achievement and even recommend you based on their experience with your reward card.
Customers will often choose you over potential other competitors because they wish to work towards their free or discounted reward.

How to plan you rewards, and make your loyalty program stand out.

  • 1: Choose a great name, something that rolls off the tongue and is relevant to your brand.
  • 2: Determine what customer actions will be rewarded, (EG: Buy a coffee, a muffin or maybe both.)
  • 3: Add extra value and offer a variety of rewards. Don’t Just offer a free coffee, give the customer a choice.
  • 4: Structure non-monetary rewards around your customers’ values. Are they likely to want something for free, or are they more likely to want some added value. Free Coffee, or free muffin with purchase of 10th coffee.
  • 5: Provide multiple opportunities for customers to start, don’t hide the system behind the counter. Let them access it easily.
  • 6: Make it a game, maybe they earn flowers on Tuesdays, and Wednesday they get butterflies, and they need a combination of both to get the best reward.
  • 7: Get your designer to make your card tailored to your brand. (tell them the boxes / stamp area should be about 15x15mm.)

How Stamps Plus Can Help.

Stamps Plus has the unique proposition of being able to offer a loyalty card stamp branded to your business. This not only protects your brand integrity it also stops consumers from trying to game the system with a cheap knock off stamp they may have purchased at the discount store.
