Add Date and Time Stamp
For the TIFF Image Printer, Raster Image Printer or the PDF Image Printer, the steps below demonstrate how to use the Stamping tab to stamp the date and time of conversion onto the pages created by your image printer.
Step by Step Instructions
- Launch the TIFF Image Printer Dashboard.
- Select “Edit & Create Profiles” to open Profile Manager.
- Select “Add a profile” to create a personal profile, or create a copy of one of our system profiles.
- Name the profile, add a description, and click Save.
- On the Stamping tab, select Add a date and time text stamp.
- Use the settings toggles to customize your date and time text stamp:
- Enable/disable prefix text
- Enable/disable suffix text
- Select date and time format. By default, the format is set to Full Date and Time.
- You can change the font type, font size, font color, and enable bold, italic or outline font styles.
- Under Position:
- you can choose which pages in the output file will be stamped,
- you can adjust the transparency of the stamp,
- you can change the horizontal and vertical alignment of the stamp,
- and you can rotate the stamp.
For this example, we will change the horizontal alignment to right and the vertical alignment to top so that the date and time stamp appear in the header area.
- Click Save-Back, and close Profile Manager.
If you plan to use these settings regularly, you may wish to make this personal profile the default profile used by your image printer.
- Select “Manage Printers” to open Printer Management.
- Select the printer you wish to edit and use the Profile drop box to select your desired default profile.
- Select the Save icon to save changes.
- Select the Home icon to return to the Dashboard.
- Close the Dashboard. Now when you print your document to your image printer, every page of the output file will be stamped with the date and time of conversion in the top right of the page.
If your page has standard 1 inch margins, this stamp will appear in the header area, but the Stamping tool does not reserve space for the stamp. Therefore, if you have a page with no margins or very small margins, the stamp will be layered over the page content. If you have non-traditional margins and need to reserve space for a stamp in the header space, please go to the Page Resizing tab and add borders to the page.
