Use a custom watermark - MS Word

Un Answered

A watermark is an image or item of text that appears in the background on every page, behind the text, and often full-page height. Protecting your work from unauthorized use is more important. One effective way to do this is by adding a watermark or a custom watermark to your documents.

There are various types of watermarks that you can use in Word, such as picture watermarks, text watermarks, and custom watermarks.

To use one of these in your work:

  • Go to Design > Page Background on the ribbon


  • Click Watermark to open a dropdown menu
  • Choose a watermark from the options in the gallery

Choose a built-in watermark from the list, such as "CONFIDENTIAL," "DRAFT," or "URGENT".

The watermark will be added to your document.

Make and add a custom watermark to Word:

To add a custom watermark to a document in Word, you can follow these steps:

Select the "Custom Watermark" option from the  Watermark

This will opens a new window where you can pick the type of watermark: "Text watermark" or "Picture watermark"

  • Picture watermark – Use an image (e.g. a company logo) as a watermark. You can also choose the size of the image on the page and whether to add a ‘Washout’ effect.
  • Text watermark – Enter the text you want to use, select the font, size, and color, and adjust the layout and orientation.
