You can make use of pdfscreen in conjunction with following macros to

\makeatletter
\setlength{\@tempdima}{0pt}
\setlength{\@tempdimb}{\paperwidth-2\@tempdima}
\setlength{\@tempdimc}{\paperheight-2\@tempdima}
\setlength{\unitlength}{1pt}\thinlines%
\put(\strip at pt\@tempdima,\strip at pt\@tempdima){%
\makebox(\strip at pt\@tempdimb,\strip at pt\@tempdimc)[#1]{%
{#2}}}}}

\setlength{\unitlength}{1pt}\thinlines%
\put(#1){\includegraphics{#2}}}}

\setlength{\unitlength}{1pt}\thinlines%
\put(#1){#2}}}
\makeatother

Usage:

\putpagefig[cc]{%
\begin{minipage}{3.5in}
\begin{center}
\includegraphics[width=3in]{/opt/cvr/misc-pdf/texlive-lion.pdf}
\end{center}
}

\puttext(544,6){\href{http://www.tug.org.in}{
\footnotesize\color{orange}\sffamily\itshape
This entire document has been created with \TeX{} at \tugindia office}}

\putfig(35,325){images-fig1.pdf}
\putfig(584,325){images-fig1.pdf}

\putfig helps you to include a figure anywhere in the page
irrespective of your margins, \puttext to place any text anywhere in
the page. \putpagefig, as the name indicates take account of the
entire page while placing the figure.

You might see the following document, which is generated by pdfscreen
and the above macros.
