Got my original trust notarized. When I went to make the copies, the notary seal does not show up even in the slightest.

Anyone else have this issue, and how did you resolve it?

Scan a 600 DPI copy to a PDF and when you want to print a copy print from the PDF, it will be higher quality than a standard photocopy, the seal should show. You can bring it to a Kinkos and any place like that to scan it, if you don't have one.

Mine doesn't show up either.
Not all states require a seal though (my state is one of them that does not require a seal but most will stamp it if you ask them).
I used a digital camera (though you could use a scanner) and took pictures of all my copies in good bright diffused light.

Then I used an application to "Print to PDF" and made a single PDF file of my signed trust documents. That way I only have one thing to open and print if I'm sending off a form. It takes a bit of prep work ahead of time but makes it much easier down the road.

Can it not be "re-notarized" by a notary with an Ink Stamp?

I havn't seen a crimp seal in forever...

As long as you can see the notary signature the stamp not being viable won't matter to the ATF. Plus as mentioned above many states don't even require notarization.

I've never seen anybody complain about a light, side-of-the-pencil rubbing over the imprinted part to make it show up on photocopies.
I think it's pretty standard practice.

As long as your original is notarized and properly executed, that's all that matters.

Only problem is it was notorized on the 23rd. Not sure if they would "re-notorize" something on a later date.

Take a lead pencil and lightly rub the raised area of the seal. I've used this technique to copy legal documents hundreds of times.

If you do ever need a certified copy, if you're a member of AAA, the notary at my office made copies of mine and she also stamped each page a certified copy, for free.
