Workflow: Imprinting



Imprinting is a method of adding a printed watermark to a scanned document at the time of scan. This setting can be useful in a variety of businesses and workflows where marking a scanned document after its capture is important.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Scanners in use must contain the ability to imprint and be configured to do so.

NOTE: Scanning may become significantly slower.
