Re: Texas PE -- Multicolored

How about a unique log number under your seal with your web address, which can be entered to reveal the signed date, type of paperwork (letter, drawings, revisions) and project name on your web site. You just have to have an internal way to get that information into the back end of your web server. It would be a simple lookup that anyone could do, and the engineering office admin could do the data entry as part of the transmittal process.

Then it wouldn't matter what color your signature was in - if the official cared enough to check, it could be done in seconds, 24 hours a day, with no need for human interaction. It would also give you a heads up (if an embarrassing one)  if things were going out of the office without the proper transmittal procedures being followed.

The more I think about this the more I like it -- on both legal and aesthetic grounds.  Is anyone aware of any concerns about colored stamps and/or signatures, such as longevity, legality, acceptability to bldg. depts., etc., especially in California?

I  have had my stamp copied in a similar manner....I was called by the County about something on the project. I told the person if the stamp is not green and the signature in red it is a forgery.  That is the only way I have ever signed my documents. Needless to say there was a long pause after I told the plan checker that and I never heard anything else about it.
