Portrait Landscape orientation: If needed, two different watermark images can be specified for portrait and landscape orientation.

Position: The watermark can be placed on the document using four options:

  • Stretch to fit: Stretches the watermark image to the size of the image page. Depending on the size of the watermark, stretching can distort the watermark image.
  • Stretch to width: Stretches the watermark image to fit the width of the page. Stretching does not distort the watermark image but the length of the image can become longer than the page itself and parts of the watermark may not be visible on the page.
  • Center image: Prints the watermark in the center of the page. No stretching is done.
  • Tile: Prints a watermark tiled on the page. The original size of the watermark image is not changed and the watermarks are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.
  • Bottom: Prints a watermark on the bottom of the page. The original size of the watermark image is not changed and the watermarks are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.
  • Fit to Width – Bottom: Prints a watermark on the bottom of the page and stretches the watermark image to fit the width of the page. Depending on the size of the watermark, stretching can distort the watermark image and the watermarks are cropped if they do not fit on the page entirely.

NOTE: Images and documents have their own DPI settings. For the best results, make sure the watermark image has the same DPI as the desired output. If, for example, a 72 DPI watermark image is placed on a 300 DPI output, the watermark image may appear smaller than the desired size.

Visibility: controls the visibility of the watermark image on the original document. If the watermark is light, then the Visibility (transparency) of the watermark under the document is low (for example 10%). If the watermark under the document is dark black, then the Visibility (transparence) of the watermark under the document is high 100%.

The watermark is always in the background under the printed document.

Watermark image file: points to the stock Watermark files and Stationery files supplied with the printer driver.
