How to get a background image on invoice?

I would like the PDF-invoices to have a background image, let’s say like a watermark.

I experimented updating /wp-content/plugins/event-espresso/gateways/invoice/template.php by adding something like this:

$pdf->Image(‘ticket-events-A5.jpg’, 0, 0);

but that did not do the trick. Any ideas?

We use FPDF for the invoice creation in EE3. so the best thing to do is to check Google for FPDF and watermark or background image.

It will show a variety of different options, not seem that easy, but FPDF is not the most user friendliest.

Thanks for your reply. Of course I asked Google first, that’s how I got to the $pdf->Image() in the first place :-).

Struggled a bit further and got it to work now! Had to move the line a bit further down (after $pdf->AddPage();), and add the right dimensions (210 mm). I am working on the rest of the invoice now, it’s gonna be just the way I want it! Thanks for your support.
