Since 1991, all architects are required to stamp and sign any plans or specifications as proof of their responsibility for those documents. See Business and Professions Code (BPC) section 5536.1(a) for even more details.
The architect stamp must be a minimum of 1 inch and a maximum of 2 inches in diameter circular shape.
The design of the circle may include solid lines (thin or thick) or broken lines, such as dashes or dots. Other possibilities include a rope or beaded effect. The design can also include words forming the circle.
Embellishments such as stars and graphic designs are also acceptable as long as the stamp is legible. The stamp shall not be of the embossing type.
Provided below are basic examples of recommended formats for a California architect’s stamp. Stamps can be ordered from any source—stationary stores, business supply houses, rubber stamp manufacturers, and print shops. Look up California Code of Regulations (CCR) section 136 for more specific information.
