ARTS PDF Stamper 3.0 offers unprecedented control, flexibility
June 11, 2004
ARTS PDF recently announced the release of PDF Stamper 3.0, its new Adobe® Acrobat® plug-in for applying text, image and PDF stamps to large PDF document collections. Users can insert text, dynamic text, numbering, watermarks and stamps to PDFs with unprecedented control and flexibility.
"The all-new version comes with a raft of new features that increase the performance and range of tasks users can accomplish," said Vasseenee Maunthrooa, Product Manager, ARTS PDF. "Existing users who choose to upgrade will discover a tool that processes documents faster and is easier to use, through its tighter integration with Acrobat and other ARTS PDF tools."
"By integrating ARTS PDF Stamper into the Adobe Acrobat batch processing engine, users can streamline their publishing processes greatly by sequencing stamping tasks with other tasks or commands," said Maunthrooa. "Owners of other ARTS PDF publishing tools (all those included in the ARTS PDF Publish Suite) benefit even further now as they can combine stamping tasks with others such as splitting, merging, bookmarking, linking and link auditing."
The improved user interface makes it easy to copy and reuse stamps between stamp profiles. Users can create the precise stamp needed with, options such as overlay/underlay, rotation, position, opacity, size, color and font type, and then copy and paste it into multiple stamp profiles. The preview pane feature lets them quickly see exactly how their stamps are positioned prior to processing, while the undo feature lets users remove stamps after they have been added.

ARTS PDF Stamper 3.0 works with Acrobat 5.0 and 6.0, runs on Windows, and is available immediately. A Mac version is due for release shortly.

Continuous upheaval is what makes watching the technology industry so exciting. David vs. Goliath battles are waged every day, with startups often winning against much larger businesses. For years and years, many have predicted the decline of the PDF given its age and perceived disadvantages. Today, with the PDF losing ground in emerging areas like mobile and eBooks, the calls for its ultimate demise are growing louder.
