Batch-stamp your PDFs with copyright, dates and more.


Developer website: Softmatic

With PDFStamp it's a fast and easy 5-step process to batch-stamp your PDFs with text, copyright signs, images, dates and more. Typical applications:
  • Stamp a document or parts of it with stand-out overlays that say "Confidential", "Outdated", "Draft" or similar text.
  • Add page numbers to a document.
  • Stamp copyright information on every page.
  • Overlay contact or address text blocks to cover outdated information.
The original document is long gone but the PDF that was created from it is still around - but some of its content is hopelessly outdated or even wrong. Consider the following scenarios:
  • A coworker left and the original documents can not be located anymore.
  • The original documents were created by a contractor or other outsider and are not accessible.
  • The software that created the original document does no longer work in the current environment.
What to do? Softmatic PDFStamp comes to the rescue! With PDFStamp it's a fast and easy 5-step process to batch-stamp your PDFs with text, copyright signs, images, dates and more.

The "Assistant"-style concept of PDFStamp makes it very easy to use. Here's how it works in a nutshell:

1. Simply drag your documents (files or complete folders, it doesn't matter) over the drop target in the first pane of the main window.

2. In the second pane use any of the predefined stamps or define your own. You can have as many stamps per document as you want. You can also specify if the stamps are to be applied to all pages, a range of pages.

3. Set output options like target folder in the third pane. The final name is assembled from a basename (filename or a custom text), an optional counter, and an optional postfix.

4. Review your settings - you can anytime go back to a previous step.

5. For a test run with a single PDF, click the upper "Start" button in the fifth pane. PDFStamp will then process only the first of the source PDFs. If you are happy with the result, click the lower "Start" button to process the whole set of documents.

Please note: The software has been tested extensively with thousands of PDFs, many with more than a thousand pages. However, it's simply not possible to test against each PDF generator and variety. Should you find problems with one of your documents, please let us know.
