Using the 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 design of the sample seal provided below 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 was effective July 5, 2004. Registrants must have the new seal no later than January 1, 2006. You can download an electronic seal by selecting any of the following:
