What are PDF stamps?

PDF stamps are graphic files that can be used in Adobe Acrobat as stamps or watermarks to place wherever you want on the page of PDF document. You can use them in place of actual stamps and for the same purposes, such as past due, draft, or contact information. Unlike actual stamps, PDF stamps can allow you to stamp a document entirely electronically, making printing optional. Even if you print the stamped file, they eliminate the need for ink pads and stamps. Also unlike actual stamps, electronic PDF stamps can be customed designed with any color or shape. They can also be designed to mimic the look of traditional stamps.
