I advice you three solutions:
A. If you have the 'Adobe PostScript Printer Driver' installed, choose
the 'Watermarks' tab inside the 'Properties' printer button when you
print the document (select any PostScript printer of course).
B. With a simple programming code inside the 'Prologue.ps' file,
redefine the /showpage operator, and make a font 'outline' in red color
to minimize the text coverage (the 'false' watermark is over the page
1 0 0 setrgbcolor
200 380 moveto
(Watermark) true charpath stroke
} bind def
C. To make a 'true' Watermark is a project programming bigger. If you
are interested on this I have a tool called MD'AIGUA.PS PostScript
Applet. This Applet runs only with Acrobat Distiller 4.0 but makes a
true configurable Watermarks (font, color, position, rotation, vectorial
or image watermarks, etc.) in all or a selected pages (five pages at
same time in this Demo version). If you are interested in testing the
MD'AIGUA.PS Applet, let me now and I will send you this Demo tool.
I hope this can help you,
