Using your Professional Seal

Every registered architect, interior designer, and landscape architect must procure a seal that is used to identify all construction documents prepared by the registrant or under the registrant’s supervision and control for use in Texas.

The seal can be either a rubber stamp, impression seal, or electronic as long as it will produce a clearly visible and legible image of the seal when copied or reproduced. The design of the seal must be the same as the sample seal provided for you from your online TBAE account, except that the name of the registrant and the registrant’s registration number must be substituted for the name and registration number shown. The diameter of the seal must be no smaller than one and one-half (1.5) inches.

The new design of the seal for landscape architects and interior designers became effective July 5, 2004. Registrants must have the new seal no later than January 1, 2006. You may order a seal from a local or online service provider, or log in to your account to download an electronic seal and edit it yourself.
