Stamps are meant to mimic traditional rubber stamps placed on paper documents. They are static after being placed on a PDF, and can’t be edited after they are placed. Stamps can be emailed, stored on a network, or sent to other users like any other file.

Stamps with a .brx file extension are no longer supported as of Revu 2018. However, BRX stamps are now automatically converted to PDF stamps as of Revu 2019.1.20. Visit the Download Center to update your software.

Importing Stamps

To add a Stamp to the local Stamps folder:

  • Go to Tools > Stamp > Import Stamp.

To use a Stamp located on a shared network location:

  • Go to Tools > Stamp > Change Stamp Folder.

Exporting Stamps

To export a stamp, go to the Stamps folder (C:\ProgramData\Bluebeam Software\Bluebeam Revu\20\Stamps) from Windows File Explorer. From there, you can email or upload the desired PDF to a shared network drive, or another file sharing system.

If you are not using Revu 20, replace “20” in the filepath with the version you are using (e.g. \Bluebeam Revu\20\Stamps)

Taking it further with Revu Deployments
