From Superheroes to Musicals: Bluebeam Celebrates 13 Years with a Look Back at Our Fun Videos

July 2, 2015

Can you believe Bluebeam is celebrating our 13th anniversary today? Neither can we! The last 13 years have been so much fun, time has really flown by.

Bluebeam’s mission has always been to help our customers do what they do better. But we love having a good time in the process, and our videos are no exception. To celebrate, let’s take a look back at some of our favorites over the years. Don’t judge.

It all began with the Mighty Bluebeam, our paper-fighting hero who battled the evil “Paper Pusher” to save the people of “Paperopolis” from drowning in paper. Go Mighty Bluebeam, go!


In 2011, Bluebeamer Chris tried his best to hide his Boston accent while narrating this swell little video on collaborating with Bluebeam Studio.


By 2013, we had graduated to full-on “webisodes” for celebrating the release of Revu 11, where David and his friend “Gustavo” spread the word about Digital Signatures. Talk about mad ventriloquism skills!


Later that year, we kicked off the Bluebeam eXtreme Conference keynote with the ultimate Bluebeam “movie trailer.” We laughed, we cried, it became a part of us.


In 2014 we introduced the new “Support on Demand” feature, which delivers real live Bluebeam support personnel, wherever you need them, at the push of a button. OK…not really. It was, after all, released on April 1. ;)


We also visited Dallas on “The Road to Revu 12,” where the gang had a great time catching up with customers and showing users the new features of Revu 12. They even managed to hit a karaoke bar and chase guinea hens at the Fort Worth Stockyard. Yee haw!


Things got musical for the 2014 Bluebeam eXtreme Conference, with Bluebeamers singing and dancing their way through the office for the Keynote opening. Who knew there were so many talented thespians here?


To announce the release of Revu 2015, we brought you a new series of webisodes. But none could really compare to Rob’s star turn as dancer on a mission to bring sparkle to the world and help PDFs render faster on Revu iPad. BTW, don’t tell him it was really Studio GO and not his dancing…he couldn’t bear it.


Hungry for more? Stay tuned to the PDF Insider, Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn for the latest and greatest updates. Or if you just can’t wait, be sure to attend the upcoming 2015 Bluebeam eXtreme Conference from July 29-31, where you may see some of our latest video creations. There just might be more singing and dancing in store, so you don’t want to miss it!

Until next time,


A Tale of Love, Loss and Sticky Notes

February 13, 2015

Recently Bluebeamers in the Pasadena office noticed that our neighbors in the office across the street had been trying to communicate with us through sticky notes. And it looks like they may have a bit of a crush…


As flattered as we were, our hearts already belong to our customers, so we politely declined.


But eventually they understood, and now we’re really good friends. In fact, today we got this “Happy Friday” in Morse code message.


So we’re meeting up later for cocktails.


Happy Valentine’s Day!

Until next time,

Jenn :)

Bluebeam’s Phantoms Menace the Pasadena Office Again

September 16, 2014

Like the Sand People of Star Wars, the Bluebeam pranksters are back, and in greater numbers. The force has been strong with them lately, and our Pasadena office has seen a rise in the number of desks that have been “decorated” over the past couple of months.

Some were cute…


I felt a great disturbance in the force, as if millions of items were suddenly covered in gift wrap.


Some, not so cute…


This isn’t the desk you’re looking for. You can go about your business.


And, some were downright frightening!


It’s a trap!



Desks weren’t the only things haunted by our phantoms. Even the signage left over from our recent Bluebeam eXtreme Conference wasn’t safe.




They may, however, have left a clue as to who to point the finger at.



Until next time,


The Iron Men of Bluebeam

August 21, 2014

In June, Peter and Jon of our Engineering team, proved they were outstanding at more than just software coding, when they participated in the Ironman Couer de Lane, Idaho. If you’re not familiar with Ironman races, they start with a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112-mile bike course, and if that’s not enough finish up with a 26.2 mile run. Yup, that’s right, a whole marathon. Wow. I’m exhausted just thinking about it!


Peter is still smiling as he runs the marathon leg of the race. And I couldn’t even make it to the gym today.

Both Peter and Jon managed to finish the race, and in one piece, which is quite a feat in itself! When they returned, we welcomed them back the only way we know how here, by decorating their desks.

Jonathan's desk

Jon is welcomed back tiki style.



Peter eats a well-deserved hearty breakfast after the race. And, in true developer fashion, Star Wars is never far from his mind.


In case you can’t tell, we’re super proud of our Bluebeam Ironmen and look forward to cheering them on at their next race!

Until next time,


Shark Week Makes a Splash at Bluebeam

August 12, 2014

In case you haven’t heard, this week is Shark Week at the Discovery Channel. In celebration, I thought I’d share this email from Bluebeamer Anthony, who decided to share his love of Shark Week with the rest of the company through this announcement:


Some people like Christmas, others prefer the Fourth of July.

But my favorite holiday IS A WHOLE WEEK LONG!!!


First you were afraid to go back into the water…


Then they rained down in a fury from the sky…

Break Dance

And only one man knew how to make it stop (Yes, that is our very own Andrew, break dancing in front of what could only be described as a full-blown SHARKPOCOLYPSE.)


Shark Week is August 10-16. You are all welcome for the reminder.


Thanks, Anthony! Who doesn’t love a good “Sharknado” eh?

Until next time,


Episode V: The Pranksters Strike Back

July 16, 2014

It’s been quite a while since we last heard from our office pranksters at Bluebeam. They’d been pretty quiet since we moved into our new office space earlier this year, giving us “a new hope” that perhaps they had changed their ways. But the makers of mischief struck back with a vengeance recently, hitting not one, but two desks!

When Software Engineer, Ryan, professed his love of all things Chipotle, little did he realize the pranksters here were listening! They decided to make some enhancements to his desk so it would resemble one of his favorite tinfoil-wrapped burritos. Yum!

More tinfoil than you could possibly imagine.


Most recently, Direct Marketing Manager, Jill, returned from her honeymoon in Turkey to find a giant “B” (for bride, hehe) covered in hand turkeys had taken up residence at her desk.


May the force “B” with you.


Now that we know our pranksters have given in to the dark side, you never know when they’ll strike next. Stay tuned for more updates!

Until next time,



Bluebeam T-Shirts on the Move

June 3, 2014

A lot of us at Bluebeam like to travel, and when we do, we love to take our Bluebeam t-shirts with us! Just recently, Bluebeam Product Manager, Brian, traveled to Jordan and visited the Petra Treasury, where he made sure to capture the moment in his Bluebeam best.

Last year our Channel Sales Specialist, Steve, wore his favorite Bluebeam shirt while visiting Machu Picchu in Peru.

In March, Lead Technical Support Engineer, Paul, wore his to New Mexico while participating in a 26.2 mile race honoring the soldiers who fought in the Battle of Bataan in World War II.

Bluebeam Makes a New Feathered Friend

April 15, 2014

Yesterday afternoon, when Bluebeamer Stephanie went outside on her lunch break to enjoy some of the Southern California sun, she was surprised to see an adorable cockatiel hanging out at her favorite spot by the fountain. The bird had appeared to have wandered away from his home and was roaming free, but must have been happy to see a friendly face, as he quickly jumped on Stephanie’s shoulder to say hello.

Just hanging out at the fountain.

Upon hearing the news, a bunch of us rushed over to meet Stephanie’s new feathered friend and were instantly smitten! But as much as we all wanted to take him home, we realized that the bird’s owner must be missing him very much so we decided to call the local humane society in hopes they could be reunited.

While we waited for them to come, we brought our new friend, who we decided to call “Bob,” into the office to ensure he wouldn’t fly away. Everyone loved meeting Bob, and he seemed to enjoy hanging out with us at the office.

Stephanie with her new friend, Bob.

Bob says hi to Tony…

…then makes a stop at John’s desk.

When it was time to say goodbye, we were all sad to see Bob leave, but we hope that he will find his owner, or perhaps meet a new family to love him. :)

Until next time,

Denim Day at Bluebeam

March 17, 2014

Friday was Denim Day at Bluebeam, meaning it was time to don our finest denim duds from head to toe. Bluebeamers were sporting the best in denim-on-denim looks, such as jeans, denim shirts and skirts and “denim tuxedos.” A few of us even went reaching way back into our closets to find those oldies but goodies like denim jackets and acid-wash jeans. It was truly a sight to behold! Rather than explain any further, I’ll let the pictures below speak for themselves. :)

look grand?
