Are you really serious? The idea for the PDF hole-punch originated from a beer buzz. While having an after-work drink with my colleague Robert he suggested that some people might need a PDF hole-punch. The very same people who print out the internet, store e-mails in a folder, and send pictures as a Word document. PDF hole-punch is for you guys! Thanks for this brilliant idea, Robert. The next beer is on me!

Implementation: This service uses the free PHP class FPDF. The following example code demonstrates the loading of a source PDF "input.pdf", insertion of an image "holes.png" at position ($x, $y) per page, and saving the resulting file as "output.pdf":

$pdf = new FPDI();
$num = $pdf->setSourceFile('input.pdf');
for ($cnt = 1; $cnt <= $num; $cnt++) {
	$tpl = $pdf->importPage($cnt);
	$pdf->useTemplate($tpl, null, null, 0, 0, true);
	$pdf->Image('holes.png', $x, $y);
$pdf->Output('output.pdf', 'F');
