Create a Watermark on your Word Document

If I send a Microsoft Word document which is a draft, I like to include a watermark. A watermark is faded out text or a background picture that shows on the page beneath your document text. The process for creating one is very easy. However remember that the watermarks won't show in Normal view. You need to be in Print Layout view to see them.

1. From the Office ribbon, click Page Layout.
2. In the Page Background group, click Watermark. A dialog will appear with images of common watermarks such as "Draft", "Urgent", "Confidential" and so on.
3. Click the watermark you'd like to use.
Your watermark will now appear on every page.

You can also add a nice faded picture in the background say of flowers or a coastline. Cheap and cool way to create your own personalized stationary! Play around with it!
