Just to clarify something, do you need to stamp the text on
TOP of existing page content, or under it (ie. watermark).

If you've got a PDF that StampPDF can't properly stamp, I'd
LOVE to see it...All StampPDF does (and assumably ActivePDF's
PDFToolkit) is add another content stream to the PDF page (either
above or below the existing ones) - it's pretty simple. The PDF
viewer (Acrobat, etc.) does all the hard work ;).

* Limited to the Base14 fonts.
* Limited to horizontal and vertical text (ie. no diagonals!)
* MUCH easier to remove by someone wishing to do so
