Here are 5 free PDF watermark software for Windows 10.
The software in this curated list are handy to batch watermark PDF files. Some of them support image as well as text watermark features. Apart from this, each individual software has at least one unique feature. For example, one software comes with an option to set the page range, other includes watermark opacity option and more. So apart from the main task, you will get additional features in these software.
So, let’s start with the first PDF watermark software for Windows 10 listed here.
This is a really good PDF watermark software for Windows 10. It supports batch processing. So, you can watermark multiple PDF files together. This software supports both image and text watermark options, but only one option can be used at a time.
One of its handy features is that you have the choice to set the page range to watermark the PDF files. So, instead of adding watermark to all the pages, you can choose a specific range.
When adding a text watermark, you can select any color, a font style, size, and set the rotation. When using an image watermark, you can choose from JPG, EMF, WMF, GIF, or other images, set the scale and process the input files.
You can also preview and set the position of watermark but it doesn’t show correct position of the watermark in preview. It also doesn’t provide the option to set the opacity of watermark. So there are a few shortcomings, but overall this is a good option to try when you have to watermark multiple PDF files.
Note: Installation of this PDF Watermark Tools software is ad-supported. You need to be careful and use Decline button to ignore other tools.
It is another fantastic PDF watermark software for Windows 10. Star PDF Watermark (free version) lets you add text watermark to multiple PDF files. A couple of fantastic options are available that you can use to enhance your text watermark. For example, you can set the text position, color, size, etc.
There is a very useful feature in this software. You can save settings as templates and use them whenever you want. So, you don’t have to adjust settings again and again. You can directly use a template and batch add text watermark to PDF files.
You will also find many other options, like add shadow, set transparency level, and more. However, those options are available with the paid version. You can try them in the evaluation version, but can’t use them forever.

Weeny Free PDF Merger, as its name indicates, is actually a PDF merger software. However, you can use it to add text or image watermark to a single PDF file. So, if you will add only a single PDF as input, merging won’t work, and output will be a single watermarked PDF file.
Once you have added the input PDF, you need to access Settings to select Text or Image watermark. One of the best features come with this software is that you can set the watermark opacity, which is not possible in software mentioned above. So, if you are happy to watermark a single PDF at a time, this software is really good.
jPDF Tweak (beta) includes bunch of tools among which ‘Watermark’ tool is also available. All the tools are available as tabs. You can take help of Watermark tab to add text watermark, set the font size, color, and opacity of watermark. It can text watermark only a single PDF file. Apart from this, you can also use it to merge multiple PDF files and insert the text watermark for output file.
This tool doesn’t provide output preview. So it will be difficult for you to generate the watermarked PDF as per your wish. In that case, I would suggest you to try other PDF watermark software covered in this list. However, this tool has many other features which you won’t find in other software listed here. For example, you can rotate and scale PDF pages, add attachments to PDF, encrypt PDF, etc.

This is a very simple software that can add image watermark to a single PDF file at a time. You can use JPG image as watermark and apply it to your PDF file. Watermark is added as the background image on all the pages of PDF document.
There are no other features in this software. You can neither set the size of watermark nor you can set the opacity. So, if your only requirement is to quickly add an image as watermark to your PDF file, then this software is definitely useful.
If I have to use a software from this list to watermark PDF files, I would choose PDF Watermark Tools software. It has all the necessary options that a regular user needs to watermark PDF files in Windows 10.
