Anyone who operates as a registered landscape architect in Arizona needs to have a stamp or both a seal and a stamp to create official impressions on documents and paperwork. These tools are used to verify landscape plans, drawings, specifications, and other important documents.
However, each state has a set of requirements for what the seal or stamp must look like. You also need to be sure all the required information is included on the seal you make impressions with.
This article will give you a better understanding of the Arizona landscape architect seal requirements. You can then choose products that fit the requirements for your line of work.
Rules and Regulations About Arizona Landscape Architect Seals and Stamps
If you search for landscape architect seals or stamps, you’re going to get a ton of hits. The issue is that not all of these products are going to be designed to Arizona specifications. So, even if you find a bargain on a stamp and purchase it, you can’t use it as a professional if it doesn’t meet all of the requirements.
Four things to be aware of when choosing a seal or stamp include the following:
- Each stamp must include the word “Registered.”
- Rubber stamps are required.
- Embossers can only be used in addition to stamps.
- The size of the seal or stamp must be 1 ½ inches in diameter.
While many states let you use seals or stamps, Arizona requires rubber stamps. You can also use an embosser, but you have to have the stamp and use it on official documents.
The upper part of the annular space between the second and third circle should state “Registered Professional Landscape Architect.” In addition, “Arizona U.S.A.” must be printed at the bottom of the space between the second and third circles.
The inner-circle on the stamp needs to have the name of the registrant, their registration number, and the words “Date Signed.” An expiration date under the seal is optional and may or may not be included depending on the stamp you choose.
Arizona Landscape Architect Seal Design Options
Rather than having a single design for your seal, you have a few options in Arizona. The standard example is 1 ½ inches in diameter and has the information mentioned above. In addition, there are several borders, including one on the outside edge and three inside of the seal itself. The production template is AZLA.cdr and the slim template is AZLAS.cdr.
The second option is identical to the standard seal but with the inclusion of a curved expiration date. It has all the same specifications as the first seal but also includes the text “Expires” underneath followed by a relevant date. The standard template is AZLA-2.cdr and the slim template is AZLAS-2.cdr.
Finally, you can choose a seal template with a flat expiration date. It’s the same as the last template, but the expiration date is straight instead of curved around the seal. The traditional template is AZLA-3.crd, while the slim template is AZLAS-3.cdr.
