How do I make pages which were “intentionally left blank”?

Assuming I am forcing amount of pages to be even using Raphink's solution : https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/69112/7128

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{ifthen}
\begin{document}
\lipsum

\ifthenelse{\isodd{\thepage}}
{\cleardoublepage\mbox{}}
{}

\end{document}

How to put a nice grey large text in the center of page "This page was left intentionally blank" ?

I suppose it's the place where is \mbox{}, but how to typeset such information ?

(I use pdflatex)

  • slightly different, because I ask for solution where user decides when he wants to put "Intentionally Blank" information, but for sure worth to mention as closely related. – Grzegorz Wierzowiecki Aug 28 '12 at 13:07
  • OK; there's at least one solution there that is 'the user's decision' – Brent.Longborough Aug 28 '12 at 14:48

Since @egreg's solution is better, I'll use this one:

\documentclass{book}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\AtEndDocument{\clearpage%
\ifodd\value{page}\else%
\newpage%
\thispagestyle{empty}
\vspace*{\fill}
\begin{center}
\textsc{\large This page is intentionally left blank.}
\end{center}
\vfill
\fi}

\begin{document}

\lipsum

\lipsum

\lipsum

\lipsum

\lipsum

\end{document}

    I'd use \vspace*{\fill} instead of \mbox{}\vfill (removing the final \mbox{}). – egreg Aug 28 '12 at 12:42
