Watermarking screenplays and adding a cover page for printing

It is super easy to prepare your screenplay for printing and make sure your screenplay is both watermarked and trackable. Here is how!

Dramatify watermark basics

Watermarking screenplays is an industry standard. But we think it shouldn’t cost you a lot of effort or money! Therefore, every screenplay that is printed from Dramatify is automatically watermarked, tagged and trackable. You don’t have to do anything!

Each page in each copy that is printed from Dramatify – regardless if it’s printed on paper or as a pdf – automatically displays your production company logo along with a footer with printing and copyright information: “Printed [date] for [name of the team member that printed the screenplay] [title of the person] [email address] © [The Production Company name]”. It looks something like this:

Printed 2021-01-01 for
Jane Smith, screenwriter
jane@theproductioncompany.com
© The Production Company

Adding a watermark

The watermark is more or less also added automatically, at least if you have added a logo to the production company profile that was set up when first registered.

Check if you have a watermark logo

You can check the image by going to the Production page of your production. If you see your logo to the left of the production company name, your logo will be used to watermark your screenplays. On the other hand, if you see a grey camera icon, it’s the default logo placeholder that needs to be replaced with your logo.

Watermarking screenplays and scripts for drama, film and series

Watermark – Adding a company logo

On the production page (above), click on the name of your production company. On the profile page of the production company, click the menu button in the upper right corner and select “Edit account info”.

NOTE:  You need to be a business account administrator to be able to edit the account info and add a logo. If you do not have access to the menu button, ask your team leader.

Watermarking your screenplay or script with your production company logo

Click on “Select image” to upload your logo and save the page. 

NOTE: The image will be showed as a square on Dramatify pages and may be resized, but will be displayed as the original image as a watermark. As a watermark, the logo will also always appear in light grey to ease reading, regardless if it is uploaded in colour or as a greyscale image. 

Add a watermark logo to your screenplay or script for drama, film, shortfilm and series

View the watermarked script

To view the result, please click on Scripts and find your screenplay. Then click on the screenplay menu and select Print PDF. Your logo will be in the background of the first script page (not on the cover page) and at the bottom of the page, you’ll find the information of the person who printed the page.

How to add a customised cover page

If you import your screenplay, Dramatify will import any credit information in the .fdx file if you want to, but it might not be nicely formatted. If you write from scratch in Dramatify you naturally haven’t made a cover page yet. Note that only the screenplay format can get a cover page and a watermarked script.

1) Click on Scripts (& Episodes).  If your production uses episodes, choose the episode script you want to add a cover page to.

2) Click on the menu icon at the right hand side of the orange toolbar, and choose Edit script. Just fill in the fields in the bottom parts of the page under “Cover page”.

Add cover page

The Edit Script page includes several different areas for different information according to American Screenwriting Standard.

  • Credit information underneath the title, centered on the middle of the page
  • Draft and version, left side of the page
  • Screenplay contact information, right side of the page
  • Copyright information in a centered footer where you also can put registration information if your screenplay is registered.

That’s it!
