One of the first things you need to acquire as a Michigan landscape architect is a rubber stamp. Alternatively, an embossing seal can be used for all of your important official documents. Stamps and seals offer a way to share your name, license number, and location with others on drawings, plans, specifications, and more. Michigan has special requirements for how the seal or stamp looks and what information it should impart on documents. In this guide, you’ll learn all the latest regulations and how they affect the tools you use as a landscape architect. We’ll also provide a list of products that meet the state board regulations.
Michigan Landscape Architect Seal Requirements
All states have certain regulations on seals and stamps that have to be followed. Not doing so could lead to choosing seals that you cannot use for work. The four main factors to remember when selecting seals include:
- Landscape architects can use either rubber stamps or embossing seals
- The word “Registered” must be included before “Landscape Architect.”
- No specific size is required, but most people choose seals that are 1 5/8 inches in diameter.
- The prefix “No.” must be included before the license number.
Both embossing seals and rubber stamps are appropriate for use as a Michigan landscape architect. In addition, the board does not require a certain shape or size. However, the average size will be 1 5/8 inches in diameter. The prefix “No.” needs to be on the seal before your license number.
All licensed landscape architects in the state must obtain a seal authorized by the board. It needs to include one of the following phrases: “Licensed Architect,” “Licensed Professional Engineer,” or “Licensed Professional Surveyor.” Seals made before 1991 can include the words “Registered Professional Engineer,” “Registered Land Surveyor,” or “Licensed Land Surveyor.”
Any reports, specifications, and other documents created for a project by the architect must have a seal. However, seals cannot be made if your license has been suspended, expired, or revoked.
Reaching Out To the State Board
There are many reasons that a Michigan landscape architect might need to speak with the board. The website offers many types of information for architects, consumers, and others. The correct organization to reach for more information about updated seal requirements is the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs.
If you need to reach them by mail, you can use the following address:
Corporations, Securities, & Commercial Licensing Bureau
PO Box 30018
Lansing, MI 48909
