I am trying to position images in order to make a "stamp" pdf for use with pdftk. textpos looks like the perfect solution, but this code gives errors and no output:

Pictures should have been here

pdflate says: Runaway argument? 0]{20,55} Pictures should have been here \includegraphics [scale=0.5]\ETC. ! File ended while scanning use of \TP@textblock. \par

1 Answer 1


The second argument should use picture mode coordinate syntax () not {}

  • Thanks, @DavidCarlisle! Finally I have a pdf so I can tweak the coordinates. Jun 14, 2013 at 19:27
