The corporate seal was the official mark of a corporation and as the corporation (your name) is a separate entity, the corporate seal acted as the signature of the corporation. Individuals were not allowed to authorise certain corporate acts and so a corporate seal was necessary to prove corporate authority. Today, a corporate seal may be used for deeds and for bank accounts, but even these uses of the corporate seal are becoming more and more rare. Rather than a corporate seal, state laws recognise the signature of an individual(s) with actual authority (i.e. CEO, director) as binding upon the corporation (name).
Corporate seals in the past were imprinted on wax upon a document, over time , rubber stamps were preferred and today, most corporate seals are embossed upon a document. Although no longer required, the corporate seal still retains a sense of authenticity and a mark of identity for a corporation.
Many men and women have created their own seal for their own corporation, the birth name in all caps as given by the government when a baby is registered.
We have created our own and you can have your own using one of our designs below.
We use our seal on our digital documents and email signatures. We have also had these created in red ink stamps and emobossers for paper documents. We use this seal every time we sign for any official document, deed or letter we send to the government, banks, and all other corporate entities. This seal is linking the copyrighted all caps birth certificate estate with the living man or woman, and it is his/her moral right to claim the property. Because of this, if you have changed your name from your birth name by any means, including marriage, you should be ordering a seal with your BIRTH CERTIFICATE name. Eg, a married woman might sign a document with her married name, but would also place the seal of the birth estate to link her signature to the estate.
