Add stamp annotation

Add a stamp annotation to a PDF in Go

A stamp in a PDF document is analogous to applying a rubber stamp on a paper document.

PDFTron SDK benefits include:

  • Stamp PDF pages with text, images, or with other PDF pages.
  • Embed fonts and images, and copy graphical elements from one page to another.

Use Stamper to stamp content (text, image, PDF page)

To stamp text, image, and a PDF page to a PDF document.

doc := NewPDFDoc(filename)
s := NewStamper(StamperE_relative_scale, 0.5, 0.5)

// Specifies if the stamp is to be stamped as an annotation.
// note that stamps created with this setting do not work with SetAsBackground, HasStamps, and DeleteStamps, if annotation is true.

s.SetAlignment(StamperE_horizontal_right, StamperE_vertical_bottom)
s.SetAlignment(StamperE_horizontal_center, StamperE_vertical_center)
red := NewColorPt(1.0, 0.0, 0.0) // set text color to red
s.StampText(doc, "This is a title!", NewPageSet(1, doc.GetPageCount()))

img := ImageCreate(doc.GetSDFDoc(), imagename)
ps := NewPageSet(1, 2)
s.StampImage(doc, img, ps)

src_doc := NewPDFDoc(src_filename)
srcPage := src_doc.GetPage(1)
s.StampPage(doc, srcPage, ps)

About Stamper

Stamper can be used for PDF pages with text, images, or with other PDF content in only a few lines of code. Although Stamper is very simple to use compared to ElementBuilder/ElementWriter it is not as powerful or flexible. In case you need full control over PDF creation use ElementBuilder/ElementWriter to add new content to existing PDF pages as shown in the ElementBuilder sample project .
