How to add a watermark in Google Docs. You may use watermarks to add totem images or any textbook that appears faint and washed out in the background of every runner of your Word document.

Microsoft Word includes a useful “ Fit Watermark” point to help you fluently add your brand’s totem image or a textbook stamp that fades behind the content of every runner in the document. A company’s policy may bear workers to add watermarks to indicate if any document is in the draft stage or if the document is nonpublic and not meant for external distribution.

Insert Watermarks in Google Docs

Unlike Microsoft Word, there’s no erected-in support for Watermarks in Google Docs but there’s a simple workaround- produce a faded image with the TEXT of your watermark and place that image behind the textbook of your document runners. Below is how it can be achieved.


1. Produce the watermark stamp

Launch MS Paint on your computer and produce a simple watermark image in geography mode with a dark argentine textbook. Please use a bold fountain-like Impact with a large fountain size as the large image can always be resized inside Google Croakers but not vice-versa. I’ve also added some ready-to-use image prints on Canva and Imgur.

Upload Watermark Image

2. Upload Watermark to Google Docs

Inside Google Docs, go to the Insert menu, choose the Image submenu and elect Upload from Computer. Upload the watermark image that you saved in the former step to Google Croakers.

3. Open Image Options

Right-click the uploaded image inside Google Docs and choose Image Options from the contextual menu.

4. Change Rotation

Expand the Image Options sidebar and, under the Size & Gyration/rotation section, set the angle to around 320 ° to make the watermark slant.

5. Send the Image Behind Text

  • Under the textbook wrapping section, choose Before Text to shoot the watermark image behind the content of your document.
  • Under Position, choose the Fixed position option with the layout set as Center. This will place your watermark image right in the center of the runner.
  • Under the Adaptations section, set the translucency position to around 80 to fade the watermark image in the background.

The Watermark Effect in Documents

Then’s what the final watermark effect will look like in your Google Document.

Extra: You can use Document Studio to generate PDF files from Google Forms and the watermarks would also show up in your PDF document.
