Operating Instructions

·         Open the pdf document

·         Stamp the pdf document on any page that you want the stamp to appear.  Regular stamps, custom stamps, dynamic stamps, and custom dynamic stamps may be used.  If applicable, resize the stamp, reposition the stamp on the page, rotate the stamp, set the opacity of the stamp.  These settings will be used when the stamp is replicated on other pages.

·         Select the stamp by clicking on it to highlight it in blue as seen in the image below:


·         Click on the stamp tool.  

      In Acrobat & Reader DC

         you can find the stamp tool by clicking Tools > Add-on Tools. Then look for the batch stamp tool in the middle of the toolbar:


       In Acrobat & Reader XI and lower

       Right click the toolbar and make sure Add-on Tools is selected.  For Reader, the tool button should be visible under the  Extended tab.               


·         With a stamp selected, click the batch stamp tool.   The following image resembles the popup window:


·         There are four choices which can be selected with radio buttons.  The image above is from a 83 page pdf currently on page 40.  Descriptions of each choice follow.

o   Apply selected stamp to all pages - This choice is selected by default.  When okay is clicked it will apply the stamp to every page of the document, excluding the page in which the stamp has been selected so as not to duplicate the stamp on the same page.

o   Apply selected stamp to pages - This choice will apply the stamp to every page from the current page to the last page, excluding the page in which the stamp has been selected so as not to duplicate the stamp on the same page.  The page range is displayed in the description.

o   Apply selected stamp to pages X to Y - This choice will enable the two input fields which are disabled by default and apply the stamp to every page in the page range, excluding the page in which the stamp has been selected so as not to duplicate the stamp on the same page.

o   Delete all stamps that are the same as the selected stamp - This choice is for deleting multiple stamps placed in error.  It will delete all stamps that are the same as the selected stamp, excluding the selected stamp.

·         It is recommended that all pages in the page range be the same size and rotation as the page on which the original stamp is placed in order to avoid incorrect positioning or stamps being placed outside of the page boundaries.
