Add Image or Text based Watermark or Stamp to every printed document using the Watermark/Stamp feature of the Black Ice Printer Drivers. The selected image (your company logo, signature, etc.) or the required text will show up automatically on the generated pages.

A Stamp is an image that appears on the top layer of the document above the document’s content. Stamps are used to mark documents with information relevant to their creation, distribution or storage. 

A Watermark is a picture or text that appears behind a document's content. It's usually a light grey or other neutral color as to not distract too much from the document's purpose.

Image Watermark / Stamp Options

Position: The watermark can be placed on the document using the options below:

  • Stretch to fit: Stretches the watermark or stamp image to the size of the image page. Depending on the size of the watermark or stamp, stretching can distort the image.
  • Stretch to width: Stretches the watermark or stamp image to fit the width of the page. Stretching does not distort the image but the length of the image can become longer than the page itself and parts of the stamp may not be visible on the page.
  • Center image: Prints the watermark or stamp in the center of the page. No stretching is done.
  • Tile: Prints a watermark or stamp tiled on the page. The original size of the image is not changed and the watermarks or stamps are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.
  • Top: Prints a watermark or stamp on the top-center of the page. The original size of the image is not changed and the watermarks or stamps are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.
  • Fit to Width – Top: Prints a watermark or stamp on the top of the page and stretches the image to fit the width of the page. Depending on the size, stretching can distort the image and the watermarks or stamps are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.
  • Bottom: Prints a watermark or stamp on the bottom of the page. The original size of the image is not changed and the watermarks or stamps are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.
  • Fit to Width – Bottom: Prints a watermark or stamp on the bottom of the page and stretches the image to fit the width of the page. Depending on the size, stretching can distort the image and the watermarks or stamps are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.

NOTE: Images and documents have their own DPI settings. For the best results, make sure the stamp or watermark image has the same DPI as the desired output. If, for example, a 72 DPI stamp image is placed on a 300 DPI output, the stamp image may appear smaller than the desired size.

Visibility: The visibility value determines how visible the watermark or stamp is on the page. A lower percentage value produces a lighter watermark or stamp; and higher value produces a more visible watermark or stamp.
