Getting something notarized at a UPS store, post office or other office-type store has the advantages of convenience and multiple locations. For customers who need notarizing services late at night or do not have time to wait in line, other options may be available. Large banks generally employ notaries to witness and sign financial documents, deeds and power-of-attorney forms. Attorney's offices hire paralegals and secretaries who may have notary certification in whatever state they serve.

Notary Rotary searches for notaries within a 50-mile radius of a location or ZIP code. Users can narrow the search to find notaries with a fax, at an attorney's office or with 24-hour service. 123Notary starts its search by state and then lists searches by city, county and ZIP code. Fee schedules for each state are included. American Society of Notaries features a search similar to that of Notary Rotary, with choices for faxes, attorneys and Internet connections. Live Notary Network features a city-state search with more than a dozen choices for business documents that can be notarized.
