A stamp can contain any content you'd like including an image, drawing, or text. A stamp is used to draw special attention to content in a PDF file. You can easily add a stamp to your PDF document with Wondershare PDFelement - PDF Editor.

Part 1: How Does PDF Stamp Work?

PDF stamping can be quite helpful for users who want to clarify the status of a certain document present in the stream. If you are working in an office, several documents are circulated throughout departments. However, to label the document with important information that may act as a disclaimer for the reader, a PDF stamp gets quite handy.

In other cases, if you wish to have your documents approved by the head of your department, a PDF stamp can help you clarify the document's status or confidentiality level, which allows the reader to handle the document in a specific manner.
