Definition 1:
A pliers-like device, that when squeezed together with paper between the jaws, makes a raised impression and indentation on paper. An non-inked embosser is used as a protection device and is not an official notary seal; but may be used in addition to the official notary seal. The most sensible use of an embosser is to emboss all pages of all documents notarized by a particular notary. That way, if a document custodian switches a particular page in a document after the notarization, the added page would not have the embosser's impression on it. One salient feature of the embosser's impression is that it can not be photo-copied which is a security feature for the notary who uses it that ensures the notary from counterfeit imposters who pretend to be that particular notary.
