Hi there,

I want to change the background from the standard PDF invoice you can download from the user page.

Any idea how i can add a background image that will fill up the complete white background in the PDF invoice? I already made some changes in the template field and i already placed the folder in uploads/espresso/gateways/invoice.

Hope someone can help me.

Best regards,

EE3 uses the FPDF library, so this answer found on stack overflow will apply:

Hi Josh,

I tried this, but it looks really weird and all the information is gone.
Also the file name is changed to doc.pdf.

Neither of those things should happen. May I ask what’s the image URL you’re using, and exactly what did you change in the template?

Hi Josh,

Thank you for the reply back. Right now it’s fixed! I just needed to use 1 line of the code. Only the line with the image.

Image does work now!
