How do I watermark a document in Word 2007?

I’d like to send out a document to my colleagues for review. I don’t want them to distribute it, so I want to put a “Draft” watermark on the document. How can I do that?


I like watermarking documents too, especially if I don’t know where they are going to end up. Here’s how you do it in Word 2007:

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 and your document is now ready for distribution. It doesn’t matter if this is a quote for a durham maid service or a proposal for a GPS service, having the right watermark can also add credibility to the document.
