After creating plans, specifications, and drawings for projects, an Illinois landscape architect needs to verify those documents. The typical way to do this on official documents is with a rubber stamp or an embossing seal. These products come in many forms, sizes, and designs to meet the needs of Illinois professionals.
However, each state creates its own set of regulations and guidelines for what these stamps and seals should look like. For example, the size is often specific and certain phrases may be required on the seals that make impressions on documents. We’ll be sharing the information you need to get seals that fit state requirements. In addition, we’ll provide you with a selection of products that meet all regulations.
Important Illinois Landscape Architect Seals and Stamps Regulations
There are a few things to keep in mind when choosing an Illinois landscape architect seal or stamp. Three specific factors should be kept in mind when purchasing these items:
- Rubber stamps and embossing seals are allowed for use on official documents
- Each of the seals must include the text “Licensed.”
- Sizes can vary on seals, but the typical choice is 1 5/8 inches in diameter.
As mentioned, you can choose to use a rubber stamp, an embossing seal, or both in Illinois. There is no set size requirement, although most seals created for the state are 1 5/8 inches in diameter. All of the seals must include the word “Licensed.”
All licensed landscape architects in Illinois should have a seal with an impression that includes the registrant’s name, license number, and the phrase “Landscape Architect, State of Illinois.” In addition, any reports, plans, and specifications related to Illinois landscape architectural practice and prepared by or under the supervision of the architect must be stamped with the seal.
In order to use a landscape architect seal, the professional’s license must be in effect. The seal, along with the dates and signature, may also be affixed electronically.
