In Microsoft Publisher 2010, you can simulate the translucence of a traditional watermark by adding text or images to the background of all or some pages in your publication. This article is a roadmap for the workflow for adding watermarks to your publication.

Add text as a watermark
You can quickly add text watermarks, such as DRAFT or INTERNAL USE ONLY to all pages of a publication using the technique shown in Add a watermark that appears on every page.
Add an image as a watermark
Images, sized from small to full-page, serve as effective backgrounds for text when the text color contrasts consistently with the image's colors. You can use a picture, clip art, or other image, such as a company logo. First, you add a frame to the page. Then you insert the image into the frame. Finally, you format the image. For all the steps see Add a watermark that appears on every page.
Add WordArt as a watermark
The process for adding a WordArt watermark is similar to the process for adding text as a watermark to your publication, the steps are shown in Add a watermark that appears on every page.
Remove a watermark
Removing a watermark is as simple as selecting and deleting the text, image, or WordArt being used as the watermark.
To delete a watermark that appears on every page of your publication:
On the Page Design tab, click Master Pages, point to the name of the master page that contains the watermark, and then click Edit Master Pages.
Click on the text or image and press Delete.
