Have you ever received a PDF and had to print it in order to add a rubber stamp, signature, or other special markup to it? Do you know Acrobat has the ability to stamp any kind of custom graphic onto a PDF document, eliminating the need to print the PDF? In fact, custom PDF stamps in Acrobat can be dynamic- they can automatically fill in custom data such as the date, user name, or just about anything else, making them far superior to rubber ink stamps.
Custom stamps and markups are ubiquitous in nearly all industries; anyone with a paper-based process today typically marks up documents with some kind of physical (rubber & ink) stamp, tape, symbols, or other custom data. “All About PDF Stamps in Acrobat® & Paperless Workflows” reveals the techniques and secrets for creating custom and dynamic PDF stamps in Acrobat so you can use less paper, produce better-looking documents, reduce data entry errors, and increase efficiency for many basic business processes. This book is an essential tool for anyone who wants to go paperless, or is already using a semi-paperless process and wants to eliminate physically stamping and/or marking up documents with a custom graphic.
Author Thom Parker, CEO of WindJack Solutions, has been developing custom PDF stamp solutions for a broad range of industries for several years. “Interest in custom stamps for PDF has exploded- so many companies want to finally get rid of the steps in their document workflows that require printing and manually marking up the document. These steps don’t just waste paper; they are time consuming, error prone, and needlessly expensive. From invoice and accounting to legal and manufacturing, stamps are a ubiquitous element in document processing. Of course, many businesses already use PDF and have Acrobat. They simply don’t know what is possible. A comment I often hear is that documentation on PDF stamps is lacking. So one reason I wrote the book is to fill this hole. I cover the complete range of information on PDF stamps, from the basic use of the built-in Acrobat tools for the novice user, to the deep technical details on automating stamp applications for advanced programmers. The book is useful to anyone with Acrobat at any skill-level, including managers and planners who need to know how PDF stamps fit into the big picture.”
The 238-page book with over 100 helpful illustrations includes three parts. Part I is a broad overview of PDF stamps and use cases for a variety of industries including legal, accounting, architecture, finance, manufacturing and marketing. Part II covers all the details on using the Acrobat stamp tools, managing stamps, creating custom static stamps, and protecting stamps. Part III is for programmers. It covers dynamic stamps and workflow automation. It includes a variety of code samples that demonstrate all the different aspects of dynamic and automation stamp programming. The sample scripts range from simple to advanced and are useful for a wide range of skill levels.
