PDF online is one of those tool which allows you to add watermark on any PDF file and its without putting any kind of logo of it on output file. It also gives you some advance option to tweak with your watermark but edit them only if you know about them else leave them as it is.
If you wanna customize your watermark then you could, it allows to change options like, watermark position, watermark order, alignment, Horizontal/ Vertical Offset, Font size, embedding.
You can also change the Watermark color, its opacity and its angle. It also allows you to add watermark on a single page too, it could be useful if you wanna add watermark on certain pages on on whole file. The one thing I like about it that you can add 2 liner watermark too, other service allows just 1 liner.
To use this online free web service you need make an account, once you had downloaded your watermark PDF file then you can delete it from their server so that no one else can download and misuse it, if you don’t delete then after 24 hrs your file will be deleted automatically.
