PDF Watermark API

PSPDFKit API is an HTTP API that lets you add watermarks to your documents. Use the PDF Watermark API to add text or image watermarks to PDFs via a single API call.

Try It Out

This example will watermark all the pages of your document with the supplied logo.

Use Your Free Credits

Sign up to get 100 free credits, or log in to automatically add your API key to sample code.

Add a File

Add a PDF named document.pdf and an image file named logo.png to your project folder. You can also use our sample PDF and our sample image. The file name is case sensitive. Make sure the file name matches the file name in the sample code.

Run the Code

Copy the code and run it from the same folder you added the files to. For more information, see our language-specific getting started guides.

View the Results

Open result.pdf in your project folder to view the results.

Examples

The following sections show more examples of how the watermark API can be used.

Multiple Watermarks

This example will add multiple watermarks to the document. The image watermark will be placed in the center of the screen, while the text will be positioned in the bottom left corner.

Single-Page Watermark

This example will watermark the last page of the document. To do so, declare a part consisting of all pages of the source document but the last one, and a part with the last page and an image watermark action.

curl -X POST https://api.pspdfkit.com/build \
  -H "Authorization: Bearer your_api_key_here" \

Aligning Watermarks

This example will show some common watermark alignments by adding a text watermark in each of the corners.

Reference

The following schema shows all the options and valid inputs for the watermark action.

Typescript

type Dimension = number | string;

// The position of the watermark can either be a non-negative integer or a percentage (e.g. representing a ratio of the page dimension).
type Position = number | string;

// Represents one part that was sent in the multipart request. Should be the
// `name` that was specified for the part.
type MultipartReference = string;

type WatermarkAction = {
  type: "watermark",

  // Only either "text" or "image" can be specified.
  text?: string, // When specified, this is the text that the watermark will contain.
  image?: MultipartReference, // When specified, this is the image that will be used as the watermark.

  // For images, one dimension needs to be specified. For text watermarks, both dimensions need to be specified.
  width?: Dimension,
  height?: Dimension,

  // The position defaults to the center of the page.
  // You can only specify one position per axis, so either:
  // top or bottom
  // and either
  // left or right.
  top?: Position,
  right?: Position,
  bottom?: Position,
  left?: Position,
