• The document should be printed single-sided with black or dark ink.

• Continuous forms or permanent binding may not be used; however, documents may be stapled for presentation.

• Font size should be 10 point.

• On the first page of a document, there should be a blank 3 inch margin. This space is needed to accommodate the recorder’s stamp.

• The first page bottom and side margins should be ¾ of an inch to 1 inch. Subsequent pages should have ¾ of an inch to 1 inch margins on the top, bottom, and sides.

• Below the 3 inch margin on the first page, the following information should be given:

• If there is not sufficient room on the first page of the document for the required information, the page reference within the document where the information is set out shall be stated on the first page. If one of the required fields begins on the first page and continues uninterrupted to the next page, it is sufficient to meet the first page requirement.

• Signatures must have a name stamped, printed, or typed underneath. In Saint Louis City, both the grantor and grantee must sign documents.

• Attachments to a page may not be stapled or taped other than a securely attached barcode label. “Attachment” does not refer to an exhibit but additions to a document page.
