    foreach (Page page in pdf.Pages)
        TextShape text = new TextShape("your footer text here", Font.Helvetica, 14);

        // calculate position of text
        TranslateTransform translate = new TranslateTransform();
        translate.X = (page.Width - text.MeasuredWidth) / 2; // center
        translate.Y = text.MeasuredHeight + 20; // some bottom margin

        // apply the transform to the text
        text.Transform = translate;

        // add text to page

    using (FileStream fileOut = new FileStream(@"..\..\stamped.pdf", FileMode.Create, FileAccess.Write))

        translate.Y = text.MeasuredHeight + 20
        ' some bottom margin
        ' apply the transform to the text
