A corporate seal is a tool corporations use to authenticate and formalize certain documents, such as contracts, deeds, and certificates. A corporate seal typically consists of the corporation's name, state of incorporation, and year of incorporation.


Corporate seals are not required by law, but they are often used to give documents a formal and official appearance. For example, a corporation might use a corporate seal to authenticate a contract with a vendor or to certify the authenticity of a stock certificate.


In the past, corporate seals were often made of metal and required a separate press or stamp to apply the seal to documents. Today, many corporations use rubber stamps or digital seals to apply their corporate seals to documents.


While corporate seals are not required by law, certain legal documents may require using a corporate seal. For example, some states require a corporate seal on articles of incorporation, bylaws, and other corporate documents.


In addition to their legal use, corporate seals may also be used for ceremonial or symbolic purposes. For example, a corporation might use a corporate seal on a plaque or certificate presented to an employee or shareholder.


Overall, corporate seals are a useful tool for corporations to authenticate and formalize certain documents. While they are not required by law, they can be helpful in certain legal and ceremonial contexts.
