How To Add Watermarks To Your Word Documents

By dwarkarao
What exactly water marks are and what is its purpose?

Watermarks are actually the images or text or pictures that appear on the page in some translucent texture. Watermarks are use to identify the status of any document.

You can use images as well as text as watermarks, which will appear after you print the documents. They are very useful to leave a mark that it is your document and you can protect your docs from being used by anyone. It is just like symbolizing a particular document with you.

How to add water marks to a word document?

Below is the exact process to add a watermark to a printed word document using Microsoft Word application:
  • In Office 2003, Go to Format > Background, and click ‘Printed Watermark’.
  • In Office 2007, Go to Page layout > Custom Watermark

If you want to insert a text as watermark, click ‘Text watermark’, and then select or enter the text you want and tweak the settings like font and alignment.

And if you look to insert a picture as a watermark, click ‘Picture watermark’, and then click ‘Select Picture’. Select the picture you want, and then click ‘Insert’.

You can further tweak the setting by adjusting them in "ADDITIONAL OPTIONS" tab. Once you are done with all, click on the APPLY button and then on OK button.

You can view the Print Layout of that particular document to view the added watermark.
