Adding Images and Text to Existing PDFs in a Batch Process

I have a variety of PDF brochures between 2-4 pages long. 

We have many clients that we add their logo and contact information in a predefined space on each brochure. 

Currently, we are adding this information one by one in InDesign and saving as a PDF.

I'm looking for a PDF solution where we could select the brochures they are requesting and add the logo and contact information. Then saving to a new PDF.

The location of the image and text varies between the documents.

We do not want to use fillable PDFs as that is tacky with the highlights and how easily the fields can be edited.

Any ideas?

I don't understand your last comment. What do highlights have to do with fillable PDFs? And how is it "tacky"?

Anyway, using form fields is the only way to do it, unless your clients all have access to Adobe Acrobat. It's a simple and easy to use solution.

We don't want to the blue form fields we want the color of the background to show through. The blue form field distract and don't look professional on a business brochure.

You can disable it using a script, if it's not already disabled in the user preferences.

I disagree that it "doesn't look professional", though. Looks just fine to me and it helps the user know that the file contains fillable fields...

I could probably develop it for you, for a fee of course. You can contact me privately via [try6767 at gmail.com] to discuss it further.

When you set the fields as read-only then they are not highlighted.
