Hi, there is a way using SyncFusion to apply a background image to an existing PDF? I do not want to use a transparency, but applying the original image as background image of the existing PDF document.

A solution can also be the ability to apply a PDF as background of another PDF, as does the pdftk with the background command:

I don't want the background to be applied with borders (printable area?) but on the full page. Is it possibile?

Hi Claudio,

Thank you for your update.


Could you please set all the margins to zero so that the image or the Pdf document can be drawn in full page.

Please use the below code snippet.

PdfDocument doc = new PdfDocument();

doc.PageSettings.Margins.All = 0;


Please let us know if you have any concern.
