Alabama increased the notary bond amount from $10,000 to $25,000. Despite the increase, we have not increased our premiums. The $25,000 Alabama Notary bond is still only $50.

It appears that Alabama will now accept inked stamp seals in lieu of an embosser. The state says they are waiting for an Attorney General Opinion to clarify the new law, however, it seems pretty self-explanatory: https://arc-sos.state.al.us/PAC/SOSACPDF.001/A0008589.PDF. The best part of all, notaries in Alabama can now charge $5 for each notarization.
