Hi,

I (seemingly) found a solution to my question at http://answers.google.com...threadview/id/779573.html - but when I tried that, the result doesn't look so hot... the stationery (a PDF file that looks great by itself) I was using looked kinda crappy (fuzzy) in the resulting PDF when pdfedit995 (http://www.pdf995.com/pdfedit.html) printed the text on it (from Word). The text itself (in the resulting PDF) looks very clean... strange.

Any ideas?

hi brotherS,
this is a great idea.

You say it's the original stationary part that goes fuzzy - I suspect the software doesnt really merge the documents 'properly', but converts the original to an image (of poor quality) and adds the word text as actual text.

Curious to see if anyone knows an easy way of doing this (that doesnt cost an arm and a leg)

Try adding the text first,
then the stationary.

See if it comes out better.

You could try Nuance PDF Converter Pro, it has an overlay option:

"Overlay Settings
The Overlay option lets you easily add a company logo or other fixed item to every page of PDF files you create. It also lets you place artwork or other fixed items onto just the first page of your PDF files, together with items that change from file to file."

Oops! Totally forgot to reply back then. embarassed

I tried some of the suggested solutions, but couldn't get it to work as I wanted - and after having spent some hours on that, I decided it's just not worth spending even more hours on it, so back to paper it is!
