Is there a way to add permanent text, such as watermarks or page numbers, to any PDF document. I want the information that gets stamped in the PDF document to become part of the document and I want
it to be present when the pdf document is displayed and printed.

I want to be able to use watermarks, page numbers, headers and possibly footers. In addition, I would like the capability to customize the text appearance and position and to specify text size, font, justification, top or bottom placement, diagonal orientation, and whether text is printed on top of or underneath the existing PDF document text. It would be nice if text could be stamped in black, white, any shade of gray or any color.

Is there a way to do this with the acrobat/distiller products. I know I can buy a 3rd party tool to do this.

thanks for any help that you can provide.
