Create a watermark in a Word 2007 or Word 2010 document

You may have created a document which you want to send out to colleagues but want a watermark in the document to remind them that this is a first draft.

With the document open, on the Page Layout tab, in the Page Background group, click the Watermark button.

From the dropdown, select a watermark (you may have to scroll down to find the one you want) or click Custom Watermark to create your own. If you click Custom Watermark, the Printed Watermark dialog box will be displayed.

To add a picture watermark, click Picture watermark, then click Select Picture. The Insert Picture dialog box opens.

From the Look in dropdown, select the location of the required picture, click on the picture, then click Insert. Click Apply to apply the watermark to the document, then click Close.

To apply some text as a watermark, from the Printed Watermark dialog box, select Text watermark.

From the Text dropdown, select an appropriate text, or type some in. If required, make changes to the Font, Size, Color and Layout, using the appropriate options.

Click Apply, then click Close. The watermark is added to the document.
