How do I save Custom Stamps when Upgrading?

I have created several Custom Stamps. When upgrading from 8 to 9 and 9 to 10, after upgrade, Custom Stamps had to be created anew. Am prepapring to install XI upgrade. How can I assure that the Custom Stamps are still in my program after Upgrade? Are the Custom Stamps in a file of their own? If so, can it merely be copies? Is there some sort of an Import procedure that you must do?

User created stamps (which a custom stamp would be) are saved to specific location.
An example for a Windows Vista / Acrobat 9 install:
--| <user name>/AppData/Roaming/Adobe/Acrobat/9.0/Stamps
.
A similar situation exists for Acrobat version prior to 9 and for tne new versions (X, XI).
When the custom stamp is created it is given an alphanumeric file name.
(e.g., yPucSpyIl5NeV48TCX4IPD.pdf)
.
You can rename to something more user friendly.
.
As you create your custom stamps you could copy them to a backup location.
When changing to a new version of Acrobat you could copy the backups to the new installs "stamp" folder.
.
As you make use of custom stamps I recommend Thom Parker's book "All About Stamps in Acrobat and Paperless Workflows".

I've found it to be exceptionally informative (and an enjoyable read).

Be well...
