For pdf,

  • Pdf Starts Calculation from Bottom-Left Corner of Page and by default is measured in points. Start with X and Y axis at left bottom page.

    We have to set based on our requirements set $this->x and $this->y axis.

Page size can be retrieved from a page object's get widht and height function, using $page object:

//start with zend_pdf method of zend frameworks,

$pdf = new \Zend_Pdf();

//create new page in pdf

$page = $pdf->newPage(\Zend_Pdf_Page::SIZE_A4);

//set color

$page->setFillColor(new \Zend_Pdf_Color_RGB(0, 0, 0));

//set font

$page->setFont(\Zend_Pdf_Font::fontWithName(\Zend_Pdf_Font::FONT_HELVETICA), 8);

//set stye for pdf,

$style = new \Zend_Pdf_Style();

//set bold font

$this->_setFontBold($style, 10);

$page->drawText($title, 225, $this->y, 'UTF-8');

Page Height and widht for pdf,

 SIZE_A4                = '595:842:';
    SIZE_A4_LANDSCAPE      = '842:595:';
    SIZE_LETTER            = '612:792:';
    SIZE_LETTER_LANDSCAPE  = '792:612:';

//get page widht

$width  = $page->getWidth(); //width for A4 page, 595

//get page height

$height = $page->getHeight(); //Height for A4 page,842

//write text into pdf,

$this->x = 30;
$this->y = 800;
$page->drawText('This is test example', $this->x, $this->y, 'UTF-8');

Override invoice php file for invoice pdf customization, Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Pdf\Invoice,

class Invoicepdf extends \Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Pdf\Invoice{
     public function getPdf($invoices = [])
            //custom code of getpdf

                //add new footer section this is our custom code function...

             return $pdf;

        protected function _drawFooter(\Zend_Pdf_Page $page)
            $this->y =50;    
            $page->setFillColor(new \Zend_Pdf_Color_RGB(1, 1, 1));
            $page->setLineColor(new \Zend_Pdf_Color_GrayScale(0.5));
            $page->drawRectangle(60, $this->y, 510, $this->y -30);

            $page->setFillColor(new \Zend_Pdf_Color_RGB(0.1, 0.1, 0.1));
            $page->setFont(\Zend_Pdf_Font::fontWithName(\Zend_Pdf_Font::FONT_HELVETICA), 7);
            $this->y -=10;
            $page->drawText("Company name", 70, $this->y, 'UTF-8');
            $page->drawText("Tel: +123 456 676", 230, $this->y, 'UTF-8');
            $page->drawText("Registered in Countryname", 430, $this->y, 'UTF-8');

  • I've created something similar using this as inspiration. However, when printing several orders off in one go, the Footer only appears on the last page. Thoughts?

The x and y coordinate in Pdf aren't easy, we should calcuate by ourself.

First of all, we need to override the getPdf method of Invoice Pdf


public function getPdf($invoices = [])



Second, build our methods:

public function insertStoreInformation(&$page)
    $page->setFillColor(new \Zend_Pdf_Color_GrayScale(0));
    $font = $this->_setFontRegular($page, 10);
    $this->y = $this->y ? $this->y : 815;

    $storeName =$this->scopeConfig->getValue(

    //Draw store name
    if($storeName) {
        foreach ($this->string->split($storeName, 45, true, true) as $_value) {
                        $this->getAlignRight($_value, 130, 440, $font, 10),
                    $top -= 10;

    $this->y = $this->y > $top ? $top : $this->y;


 public function insertFooterInvoice(&$page)
    $this->y = $this->y ? $this->y : 100;
    $text = 'Footer Invoice';
    //Draw store name
    if($text) {
        foreach ($this->string->split($text, 45, true, true) as $_value) {
                        $this->getAlignRight($_value, 130, 440, $font, 10),
                    $top -= 10;


I am answering based on magento current version i.e. Magento2.6.The getPdf function is slightly changed.It has private variable $this->appEmulation due to this limitation we can't use preference to rewrite full file.

Based on it we can append footer using below code.

You can achieve this by using a plugin for the getPdf() method. Here's an updated example:

  1. Create a custom module if you haven't already done so.

  2. Create a di.xml file in your module's etc directory: app/code/YourNamespace/YourModule/etc/di.xml.

  3. Add the plugin configuration in the di.xml file to specify your plugin class:

    <type name="Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Pdf\Invoice">
        <plugin name="your_plugin_name" type="YourNamespace\YourModule\Plugin\Sales\Order\Pdf\InvoicePlugin"
                sortOrder="1" disabled="false"/>
  4. Create the plugin class InvoicePlugin.php in the directory app/code/YourNamespace/YourModule/Plugin/Sales/Order/Pdf:

    namespace YourNamespace\YourModule\Plugin\Sales\Order\Pdf;
    class InvoicePlugin
    public function aroundGetPdf(
        \Magento\Sales\Model\Order\Pdf\Invoice $subject,
        \Closure $proceed,
        $invoices = []
    ) {
        // Call the original method to generate the invoice PDF
        $pdf = $proceed($invoices);
        // Add footer to each page of the PDF
        foreach ($pdf->pages as $page) {
        return $pdf;
    protected function addFooterToPage($page)
        // Set font style for the footer
        $font = \Zend_Pdf_Font::fontWithName(\Zend_Pdf_Font::FONT_HELVETICA);
        $page->setFont($font, 10);
        // Set footer text and position
        $footerText = __('Your Footer Text Here');
        $footerPosition = 50; // Adjust the position as needed
        // Draw the footer
        $page->drawText($footerText, 25, $footerPosition, 'UTF-8');
