Custom stamps in Acrobat

June 04, 2009


By default, Adobe Acrobat allows users to place various standard stamps on your documents such as 'Approved', 'Declined' or 'Accepted'. That said, you can also create your own custom stamps. Using this option, you can take a logo or other image from another application and turn it into a custom stamp. Once created, you can apply it to any PDF document in Acrobat.

To create a custom stamp in Acrobat:

  1. Open Acrobat.
  2. Choose Tools > Commenting > Stamp Tool > Create Custom Stamp...
  3. Select the desired image and you're done!

Simple, huh?
