How do I add a stamp/note to a drawing file (edrw, slddrw, dwg) in C#?

I am trying to create an application for the guys on our production floor. I would like this application to open a drawing file, add some kind of text/note/stamp, and then print the file. I am having some trouble getting the text onto the document.

 

First, I tried to add a tooltip to the drawing. The tooltip shows up when you open the drawing, but it will not print with the drawing. So now I'm trying to add a stamp with the AddStamp() method in the EModelMarkupControl interface. I wrote something to convert the text string to a bitmap image to use as the stamp, but the AddStamp() method is not adding anything to the drawing.

 

Is there some clear way to do this that I'm not seeing?
