When I started a new company I scoured the net for a simple template I can use in Photoshop to create a quick corporate seal that I can send to one of those inexpensive custom stamp places online but the search was useless. Instead, I decided to take the time to create my own from scratch and since I already did the work, I figured why not release this to the net so other people can benefit from my labor?
Anywho…I have another seal that was a store bought, professional package type of seal and it measures exactly 1.5 inches in diameter. Since you will obviously need to change the company name and date your incorporated and the state in which you incorporated, I left high resolution, downloadable versions at the links below. Simply download the transparent background PhotoShop (.psd) file or the 300 DPI flattened jpg, make the changes and resize it to 1.5 inches and then send it off to your favorite custom stamp place.
You can find custom stamps online pretty cheap and with this, you can customize it to your liking. The format I used is pretty “official” looking – like the kind you would get from your lawyer or a professional corporate kit but who says your corporate seal need to be boring? Maybe your seal can be spiced up with some funky fonts or something.

If you know PhotoShop, this was created in CS6 and most of the text was made using “Text on a circle path”. I left the paths in there for you. All you should really have to do is change the name of the company, date of incorporation and place of incorporation then flatten it and shrink it down to 1.5″ x 1.5″, the standard size of a real corporate seal.

To start, cut out my text using the lasso tool. You can probably keep the “Corporate Seal” text in there if you want. To get your text to curve simply use the “Warp Text” tool in Photoshop and then click on “Arc” and either arc the text up or down depending on which section you are working on. It’s very easy to do if you’ve got Photoshop.
