Endorsements are header and footer information containing text that can be added to the top and bottom of each printed page. Separate endorsements can be added to the left, center and right of the top of the page (the header) and the left, center and right of the bottom of the page (the footer).

An endorsement contains text such as titles and page numbers. The text in each endorsement can be formatted for font size, style and color. The steps below will add both a header and a footer endorsement on each page created by Raster Image Printer.

The header endorsement is the text "Page " and the current page number printed in the top right corner of each page. This endorsement will be in the default font of Arial 12 point, colored black. The footer endorsement is the text "Internal Use Only - Confidential" placed at the bottom center of each page. The footer text is formatted so that it is Verdana 14 point, colored red, and with only the words  "Internal Use Only" in bold text.

While the sample only shows a single endorsement in each header and footer, you can have separate endorsements in each left, center and right section at the same time.
