Hello, we were all newbies at one time. The two main tools of our trade are our vehicle and printer/scanner. A single tray printer just doesn't cut it, it is the wrong tool for the job. I realized this early on and bought a dual tray printer and, like every other notary, when I started using it I said what was I thinking! I should have done this after my third signing! In most businesses ROI is measured in years, for notaries it can be measured in weeks or less. It would take about 3-4 signings to pay for a good dual tray printer. I and many other notaries use Brother printers. They are reasonable in cost, are fast (35 PPM) and inexpensive to run when you use off brand toner cartridges. As Nike says "just do it" and simplify your life.
