Absolute placement, regardless of page margins

Postby Faust » Thu Jan 21, 2010 4:51 pm

I'm using a background for my documents made with pstricks -used inkscape as I've seen localghost recommending somewhere here, thanks for that!-

Anyways, its a logo and I want it to appear always on the same spot in my document.
What I usually do is making a savebox in the preamble with the pstricks code like this:
\newsavebox\logo
\sbox\logo{ MY CODE HERE}

Then I will call that box whereever I want it (for example in the watermark package), and I do this in combination with the PUT command to get it where I want it.
like this:
\put(-60,0){\usebox{\logo}}

This works fine, until I change my page margins with, for example, the geometry package. In that case I have to reposition, which is annoying.

Is there a way for absolute placement, regardless of margins?

Thanks!

You should go more into detail and explain where your logo shall appear (only one page, every page, exact position). Provide the code of the logo by means of a minimal working example (MWE) and enable others to tinker with it.
