[Tex/LaTex] Tikzpicture on every page


How can I include a tikzpicture on every page?

I would like to create a complicated document template (page should be framed, and have a table to hold document information both in the header and footer).

I was thinking of using something like:

\begin{tikzpicture}[remember picture,overlay]  
% complicated layout should be here, simple example is given below:  
% \node [xshift=1cm,yshift=1cm] at (current page.south west)  
% {This is an absolutely positioned text in the page};  

Do you have any other suggestions on how to create such a template?

What I usually do in LaTeX is setting up a header and place the TikZ code which should appear on every page in the header. If you do not want to display a header, you can anyway use this pattern and leave all other header fields empty. And if you are already using a header you can place this code to an arbitrary cell since it is using the overlay option.
