What is a corporate seal?

A corporate seal (or company seal) is used to authenticate your company documents.  There are two types of seals.  The first type is an embosser, which creates a 3-D impression on paper (a raised seal). The second type is an inked stamp.  The seal includes the company’s name, incorporation year, and the state in which the company was incorporated.  It is used to indicate that a document has been approved by the company and, as a result, is used on a variety of corporate documents (e.g. contracts, agreements, minutes of meetings, etc.).
