Enhance your company's image


  • • Automatically brand documents for a professional look
  • • Add your company logo, promotions and seasonal messages quickly and easily

Designed to help businesses create the right impression by automatically branding and adding logos to documents so they look as good as pre-printed stationery. Allows promotions and messages to be quickly added and easily removed for up-to-the minute accuracy.

Reduce environmental impact

  • • Send documents by email and fax, reducing your carbon footprint
  • • Use less paper and reduce your environmental impact

Sending documents by email and fax can dramatically cut down the amount of pre-printed paper used by your business. Sending documents by post increases a company's carbon footprint, so faxing and email can help reduce environmental impact.

  • • Accelerate and streamline workflow
  • • Ensure compliance

Any company or department sending sensitive or important documentation to customers, suppliers or contractors will benefit from using PDF digital signatures.
