Vermont engineers use stamps and seals approved by the state. The specific rules and requirements for Vermont engineers are covered in this article. Vermont has many rules in common with other states and some requirements that are different from most states. A Vermont engineers stamp or seal graphic like this could be custom-made according to the rules below, but many ready-made seals and stamps that can be customized for each individual exist and are not that expensive.
State of Vermont Engineer Seals Requirements
The State of Vermont has requirements for engineers’ stamps and seals that are common to many states, and some specific rules as well. You can design a Vermont engineer’s seal or stamp that meets those requirements, or order one from several companies. All Vermont engineer's stamps and seals must have the following elements and meet these requirements
- A diameter of not more than 1.5” is required.
- The engineer’s discipline must be displayed below the license number – Civil for a civil engineer for example. This is a bit unusual. Consult the state of Vermont engineering page for acceptable abbreviations. Presumably, only words like “Electronic” or “Civil” or “Structural” are permitted, to avoid any confusion
- The words “Licensed Professional Engineer” must be used. “Registered” used to be acceptable, but is no longer. Lettering must be a minimum of 1/10” high. This height specification is also a bit unusual.
- As with most or all states, Vermont allows an electronic seal.

Correct Use Of The Vermont Professional Engineer Stamp
In Vermont, the seal or stamp must be affixed to most engineering documents: specifications, plans, and plats. All those documents must be signed and dated over the seal. A signature must also be affixed over the electronic seal. Seals may not be placed over another person’s work. This act is a breach of professional conduct and can incur a fine and/or jail time.
As with most states, Vermont requires that engineers only place their stamps or seals on their own work to certify they really were fully in charge of doing the work. A digital file, like a scanned image, will suffice for the electronic signature. You can also use software to digitally sign documents over the electronic seal.
Engineers who obtained their seals before the discipline was required to be identified do not need to buy new stamps and seals to comply with state regulations. They have been ‘grandfathered’ in. The other rules for Vermont engineers’ seals and stamps apply.
Land surveyors in Vermont are subject to the rules and design requirements listed above, with a few exceptions. The seal must contain the words “State of Vermont, Licensed Land Surveyor” in addition to the individual’s name and license number. An example of the graphic may be found on Vermont’s state website.
Get The Right Seals And Stamps for a Vermont-Licensed Professional Engineer
All professional engineers working in Vermont should have on hand a few different tools for affixing the required seals or stamps. An embosser, a rubber stamp, and an approved electronic seal should be enough. Unlike physical seals and stamps, it is possible to copy and paste an electronic seal, though probably a violation of state regulations or professional ethics.
At the very least, doing so creates extra work because the seal needs to be customized for each individual. Vermont engineers who need stamps can save time, money, and trouble by ordering stamps from ESS, which can also supply a land surveyor seal or stamp.
