automatically watermark and combine pdf files
« on: September 02, 2011, 02:41:48 PM »
hello

I have a program that I select some entries and it generates pdf files of them and sends them to the printer.

What I need is to automatically put a watermark of my choice to each pdf page of the above and also automatically combine them.

Can you suggest me a solution?

I tried to use a virtual pdf printer with no luck (maybe because the files that are sent to the virtual pdf printer, are already pdf?)

thanks

A combination of FinePrint and PDFFactory would do that, but as it would take a few clicks it wouldn't be entirely automatic and it would also be a bit pricey.

If you already have a pdf printer all you would need is FinePrint.  You would just keep "printing" to FinePrint (pdf files would be ok) and FinePrint would add the watermark to each page.  You'd then print from FinePrint to your pdf maker.

Not sure if these fit your needs, but I find them invaluable! Good price too... ;D

Um, not cheap, but I believe Adobe Standard does that.  I know it will combine PDF's.  Not certain about the watermark, but I believe it will.
