Except in cases provided in section 359.03, subdivision 3, every notary public, in addition to signing the jurat or certificate of acknowledgment, shall, immediately following the signature and immediately preceding the official description, endorse thereon the notary's name with a typewriter, print the same legibly with a stamp, with pen and ink, or affix by electronic means; provided that the failure so to endorse or print the name shall not invalidate any jurat or certificate of acknowledgment.
