When I use the notarial certificates I create and print myself, all my required information is preprinted on the forms.
But when I notarize a document that has its own notarial certificate wording, I use a rubber stamp I had made.
My stamp states the following info - most of the text is required by my state. Adjust for your state's requirements.

I had the stamp made with small letters using Arial font size 8. The letters are big enough to read but the entire stamp is small enough to squeeze into most spaces. This stamp has saved me lots of writing by hand and I keep it in my briefcase at all times.
www.GoMobileNotary.com has pre-inked stamps that give super clear images. Much better than the self-inking stamps. I highly suggest GMN for all your stamp needs.
