    Signature and Professional Seal

    What is the best way to create the professional seal in Revit? In autocad we use blocks... Would I need to create a family for a professional seal? Or is an png the best practice?

    We use a generic annotation family with the image file inside. That way you can assign some parameters to it to turn it on or off in a titleblock and make sure the size stays consistent.

    Don’t put it in Revit at all. Apply stamps during printing at the plotter or via software like Bluebeam.

    Ditto.
    You can create a "pure" Revit family by tracing over the image, but it's really not worth the effort. Especially since every state's stamp will be different.

    We have them built into the titleblock. We're a small enough company that it's not too complex. Each of the stamps were traced and put into generic annotation families and tied into the sheet submittal date.
