What Our Michigan Customers Say
Good Morning. Just wanted to Drop a Line. And Say Thank you so very much. For all your help along the way. Received my Journal and Stamp. Yesterday the 21 Feb 2023. Thank you for making things easy. Everything went Smooth from printing my Bond. To Printing E/O Insurance. Navigating the web site is so easy. Always someone there to answer the phones and answer any questions a up and coming Notary may Have. Thank you again and God Bless.
Your website was amazingly user friendly and the bond printing in just minutes was so very needed and appreciated. I must admit I tried another ‘National’ company a month ago – and still have not received my bond despite numerous follow-up emails and phone calls! I am a customer for life with American Association of Notaries!
Order received today, and I am highly pleased. The old-fashioned desk embossed no. IN524 adds a touch of class and professionalism to my notary station...reflects my company well and raises the bar on the way I strive to do business...giving the customer a little more than expected.
