Add Watermark to Selected Pages

To add a watermark only to selected pages, we must separate the document into sections. For example, if we want to apply a watermark only to the table of contents in a document, we must create three sections: a cover page section, the table of contents section, and the rest of the document text in its own section. When we insert a cover page in a document, it has a separate header so that we don't need to create a separate section for it if we're creating sections to add a watermark only to selected pages.

 To Insert Watermark On Selected Pages:

  • In Draft view, replace the page breaks surrounding the pages to which you want to add watermarks with section breaks.
  • On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click Breaks, and then click Next Page under Section Breaks.

  • Switch to Print Layout view.
  • Double-click the document header area on the page where you want the watermark to appear. This opens the header.
  • Microsoft Office Word places watermarks in the header even though they don't appear in the header.
  • Under Header & Footer Tools, on the Design tab, in the Navigation group, click Link to Previous so that the headers are no longer linked.
  • Double-click the document header area on the first page where you don't want the watermark to appear. Click the page where you want the watermark to appear.
  • On the Page Layout tab, in the Page Background group, click Watermark and select the watermark that you want. 


The watermark will only attach to one page even with section breaks. Please advise how to insert for entire document.

Still have watermark on ALL pages even though the document is split up into sections and the "link to previous" is turned off. Unhelpful!

Maybe it is because the direction, "Double-click the document header area on the first page where you don't want the watermark to appear. Click the page where you want the watermark to appear." does not convey an action.

Hi all, once you have seperated the document into sections and inserted the watermark. Click in the header of the section where you dont want the watermark, then click on the watermark text itself and delete. This will delete the watermark in that section only, leaving the watermark where you want it.

Unhelpful :(
I tried many times, but nothing!!
please.. any best ideas ?

Worked for me, but in the print preview there is a white margin that's not in the watermark.
So much for WYSIWYG.....

More than 20 years of Word and wysiwyg is still a laugh....!

i dont understand this at all i followed all procedures and still has watermarks on every page :/

Doesn't work with custom watermarks.. :-/

Really i appreciate the effort you made to share the knowledge. I found it here in this sites was really effective information which i was researching for a long time.
Thanks for Sharing.

Thanx for your comment !!
saved this tutorial, laudable for the try to tutor us,
otherwise the most terrible in explanations and clarity,
and useless without your life/tutorial-saving comment !!

In MS Word 2011 for Mac, these directions do not work when different image watermarks are desired for different pages. While watermarks on specific pages can be deleted after initial watermark insertion on a page of another section, insertion of watermarks on pages in separate sections simply replaces watermark images in all sections This tutorial/direction is simply unworkable for Word 2011 Mac.
