The journal should be a permanently bound book that creates and preserves a chronological record of performed notarial acts.

Rhode Island General Law does not mandate that notaries use a journal of notarial acts. Notaries electing to use a journal should as a matter of good practice, preserve the journal for seven years.

Our Classic Journal of Notarial Events was designed especially for the workplace notary who may encounter a myriad of single notarizations in the performance of her or his duties.

We created our Modern Journal of Notarial Events for the professional notary public. Our MOJO is ideal for signing agents, focusing on loan signings and common notarial acts, like healthcare directives and wills. In nearly all states, it is typical for notary signing agents to record eight or more notarizations on a single line when performing a witness-only loan signing. This is accomplished by using the combination notarial act/document type checkboxes.
Our Notary Journals are the best in the notary business, guaranteed.
