Stamping PDFs

My favorite annotation is the Stamp annotation, which allows you to place custom stamp effects anywhere in a document. You can stamp up a document as confidential, top secret, or as a working draft for your eyes only. You can even add custom stamps; any graphic file saved as a PDF can be placed as a custom stamp.

To add a stamp to a document:

1.
Open the document open that you want to stamp, and choose the Stamp tool from the toolbar (Shift-S) (Figure 10.27).

Figure 10.27. To stamp a document, choose the Stamp tool from the toolbar.


2.
Drag over an area that is as big as you'd like the stamp to be (you can always resize it later).

A default stamp appears (Figure 10.28).

3.
Click the stamp to select it and then choose Properties from the Edit menu (Ctrl-I/Command-I).

or

Right-click/Control-click the stamp and then choose Properties from the shortcut menu.

The Stamp Properties dialog box appears (Figure 10.29).

4.
From the Category pop-up menu, choose the category of the stamp you want to use.

5.
Choose the stamp you would like to use.

You can see a preview of the stamp you've clicked on the right side of the dialog box.

6.
Click OK.

The stamp changes in your document (Figure 10.30).
