So, I need to get my rubber stamp now in order to get my certificate. I saw some places online to buy them, is that the way to go?

I ordered mine yesterday at engineeringseals.com. They seem to be well recommended around here.

Rubbers, I usually get from local corner stores. Stamp, I never had to order because I failed 3 times and waiting for the results of #4.

In addition in where to get the seal what kind of seal is recommended? I work for a utility and am a ME so I really don't see myself using it every day to stamp a stack of drawings. I was thinking embosser but everyone else at work has a stamp. I think it's due to cost. What do you guys like/prefer/recommend?

I've only ever used my electronic seal. It makes "stamping" plan sets so much easier.

It depends on your state. Virginia only allows a rubber stamp, not an embosser. Some places allow either. Sometimes the embosser is more of a novelty for folks who want something more classy on their desk... it just depends.

I'm in Michigan and I beleive they allow either. Obviously I know it's a personal preference but I was kind of wondering what others in my situation preferred (i.e. not going to be stamping a bunch of drawings and could chose either a stamp or embosser).

I've also only used the digital. Can't really imagine using the stamp itself. I put it in the border xref and it shows up on all the pages.

I got the pre-inked and jpg from www.engineeringseals.com. They let you do a little customization for the CA stamp (ie, one/two circles, expiration are options) that I haven't seen others do.

What License number do i give to the Stamp Vendor ?

Is it one issued by the State ( Ca in my case)

or is it the NCEES ID # ?

I ordered a pre-inked seal from engineerseals.com on Thursday. My company provides their engineers with a self-inking stamp, but several guys I know have a pre-inked and the quality and ease of use makes it far better than the self-inking (IMO), so I went ahead and ordered it myself. I will probably use an electronic seal 99% of the time. My office has an electronic template that makes it real easy to change the name/license number, so it didn't need to order the electronic.

In respone to alnorman, use the license number that CA issues you. The NCEES number has nothing to do with your license number.

i am also in michigan and i know taht at my office (civil engineering) we use ink only. occassionally we will scan this and introduce it onto a planset... don't really know anyone who has and official electronic one, but i'm looking into it!

Not sure about the OP, but Kansas requires you send a copy of your seal within 45 days in order to get your certificate and complete your registration.

What is the difference between pre-inked and self-inking? I think they are same.

Pre-inked is where the stamp is made of some kind of porous material and the ink goes on top, usually in the handle, and keeps the stamp inked like a sponge.

Self-inking is like those return address stampers, the rubber stamp is normally facing up and pressed into an ink pad cartridge, when you push down it flips to face down and pushes into the paper, when you release it flips back around and goes back up against the pad.

Thanks so much.

I don't see self-inking on engineerseals.com, only pre-inked. which is better...traditional rubber stamp + stamp pad, and pre-inked (or self-inking)?

personal preference. I have a traditional rubber stamp with a stamp pad because I never use it so why waste the money on it drying out. don't forget there are embosser types too.
