draftwatermark LaTeX package
draftwatermark package extends LaTeX providing a means to add a textual gray or colored watermark on every page or on the first page of a document. Typical usage may consist in writing words such as "DRAFT" or "CONFIDENTIAL" across document pages. The package may remind in some sense
draftcopy by Dr. Juergen Vollmer, but its implementation is lighter (as the reduced code footprint shows) and does not rely on postscript specials, making the package fully compatible with pdfLaTeX, XeLaTeX and LuaLaTeX.
The package focus is on simplicity, for complex layouts please consider
scrlayer.sty in the KOMA script bundle or directly employing the new LaTeX hooks

draftwatermark – Put a grey textual watermark on document pages
The package provides a means to add a watermark (typically a light gray piece of text) on every page or on the first page of a document. Typical usage may consist in writing words such as DRAFT or CONFIDENTIAL across document pages.
The package performs a similar function to that of draftcopy, but its implementation is output device independent.
As of today, the package relies on the new shipout hooks directly provided by LaTeX. For users of older versions of LaTeX, the package also provides a legacy version of itself (that is automatically loaded, currently being at release 2.3) which relies on the everypage package. Note that this legacy version will progressively lag behind in terms of features.
