Apply a Watermark to a PDF Document?

Can Magento apply a watermark to an existing PDF document ?

In otherwords, for a particular product I would like to add a supplier’s technical brochure which is in PDF format. On top of that PDF, I would like to apply a watermark which says “Product Available from X”. That way, when the customer prints the brochure, it has some reference to my website on it. The other benefit, is that this will hopefully prevent someone from scraping my website and downloading all my supplier brochures.

Does anyone know:

Can this be done in Magento?

If not, is there a Magento add-in that anyone is aware of?

If no to both of the above, is there a piece of software that anyone has used before and could recommend?

Thanks in advance.

With our extension “Secured PDF”, you can watermark pdf files downloaded as “downloadable products”. For more details, visit the product page : Watermark and stamps for Magento pdf files.
It could suit your needs.

It appears that this extension just adds a footer, can you confirm that I can set it up as a watermark to run behind the entire page?

We confirm that you can add watermark with the extension ’Secured pdf‘.
We are currently updating the documentation to describe this feature.
