Online Notary Center Inc

What is an exemplar?

An "exemplar" collectively refers to the signature and seal that electronic notaries will use for online notarizations. This is required in order to become an electronic notary in the State of Nevada.

To receive one, the notary must select an approved Electronic Notary Solution Provider (basically, the platform a notary will use for remote online notarizations). Online Notary Center is one such Provider. This Provider will supply the exemplar containing the necessary signature and seal.
