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.
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.
To export a stamp:
- Go to the Stamps folder (C:\ProgramData\Bluebeam Software\Bluebeam Revu\20\Stamps) after opening the 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’re not using Revu 20, replace “20” in the filepath with the version you are using (e.g. \Bluebeam Revu\2019\Stamps).
If the ProgramData folder isn’t visible, you’ll need to unhide it via your Windows OS. The following steps apply to Windows 10 and above:
- Select the Start button, and enter File Explorer.
- Select File Explorer Options from the search results.
- Go to the View tab.
- Under Advanced settings, select Show hidden files, folders, and drives.
- Select Apply and OK.
For previous versions of Windows, see Show hidden files.

Revu 2017 and older
Stamps are meant to mimic the traditional “rubber stamp” placed on a paper document. They are static after being placed on a PDF, and they 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. Though Revu will now create PDF stamps by default, the .btx file format is still supported.
To add a Stamp to the local Stamps folder, go to Markup > Stamp > Import Stamp.
To add a Stamp from a shared network location, go to Markup > Stamp > Change Stamp Folder.
To export a stamp, simply go to the stamps folder (C:\ProgramData\Bluebeam Software\Bluebeam Revu\2016\Stamps\) from Windows File Explorer. From that folder, you can then either email or upload the desired .pdf or .btx file to a shared network drive, or any other file sharing system.
See the Stamps section of the Revu Help guide for more information.
Taking it further with Revu Deployments
Bluebeam Revu also provides useful tools for IT Administrators needing to push these customizations to multiple users within their organization. These are explained in our Revu Enterprise Installation and Administration guides.
