Bronson Watermarker - Personalized watermarking made easy.

Personalized PDFs & images with one click.

Watermarks help remind readers that certain documents are for their eyes only—no sharing. But individually watermarking each image — or each page on each PDF — is a huge chore, especially when you’re distributing to a bunch of people.

With Bronson Watermarker, it’s a snap. Whether you’re sending one document or one hundred, you won’t believe how easy it is.

Make your marks.

Start with any PDF or image.

Add a list of names.

With one click, you have personalized documents, ready to print or send.

No, really. It’s that easy.

Start with any PDF or image. You can drag it in, or open it through the File menu. Choose your style. Pick from six built-in watermark styles: Centered, Triple, Diagonal, Diagonal Outline, Lower Right, and Header. Feel the burn. Add extra protection to images with Bronson’s “Line Burn” feature. For PDFs, “Deep Burn” turns every page into an image, with the watermark permanently embedded. The files are larger, but safe from copy-and-pasting. Click and you’re done. Bronson automatically appends the names to each file, so you’ll know who gets what.
Add the names. You can add them one at time, or copy-paste a list. For multipage PDFs, watermarks will appear on each page. Make it Yours. Choose the font, size, color, and opacity most appropriate for your document’s watermark. Pick a size. Bronson Watermarker makes it easy to resize images, saving you a step.

We made it because we needed it.

In the fall of 2011, John was preparing for a staged reading of a new project. The producers insisted that every script be watermarked with the actor’s name. Easy, right?

No. John found several apps that could create one watermarked script. But making 40 personalized scripts meant repeating the process forty times, by hand, one script at a time. A simple job suddenly took an hour.

John described his needs to Nima, who came back with the first incarnation of the app that weekend. After a lot of testing and fine-tuning, the result is Bronson Watermarker.

Bronson Watermarker is great for screenplays. But it’s not just a Hollywood app—it’s great for anything that needs watermarking. Try it out and you’ll see.
