Yes a licensed notary can attest as to a true copy of original. Form in general is:
State of Washington County of . . . . . . . . I certify that this is a true and correct copy of a document in the possession of . . . . . . as of this date.

Thank you very much, that's very helpful. We have a large number of documents that need to be copied and notarized (100+ pages). Must the notary stamp and attest each individual page, or could they create a cover letter saying that each of the enclosed copies is a true copy of the original? This would obviously save the notary a LOT of stamping.
That's very helpful actually. I'm glad to hear they would not have to notarize each page but rather each document.
1. Is there a limit to what a notary can charge for notarizing a copy?
2. Can the notary notarize a copy of a document inspected electronically?
e.g. The client sends notary a scan of their documents. Notary makes a copy and notarizes it as a true copy of the document received from the client?
Thanks. Can you explain this a bit further please?
"Yes scanned electronic form is acceptable if it is a true copy scan of the original."
If the client scanned their own document and sent it to the notary how would the notary know to certify it as a true copy or not?
Okay I think I've got it. Thanks.
