PDF Batch Stamp Tool – applying stamps, pagination and other marks on PDF pages

The PDF Batch Stamp Tool is a component for stamping texts, images and watermarks as well as for paginating PDF documents.

There are many processes that add a stamp to PDF documents. The stamp can be a simple text such as “Copy”, “Confidential” or “Licensed to…” applied to each page in a specified color and size. It can also be a more extensive stamp that represents part of the page content, for instance a company logo, an address, a customer number or page numbers.
