How to add a Water mark in to PDF document

I have to prepare a BOQ and need to send it to the client as a Draft BOQ in PDF format. Every page should be a water mark as “DRAFT”.
BOQ prepared by using MS Excel 2007. There is a way to insert a water mark to excel as follow

1) Office button – Print

2) Go to the properties

3) In property there is a tab as “Effect”

4) Under effect you can select DRAFT from “water mark” drop down list box.

5) Click OK

After I insert a water mark in that way, all print outs are with a water mark as “DRAFT”, but when I convert the document in to PDF format the water mark couldn’t appeared.

I found a one way to it. It’s insert a “WordArt”

1) Insert – WordArt and insert a WordArt as Draft

2) Click on “Drawing tool “

3) Made “Text out line” color as Automatic

4) Made the “Text fill” as No fill

5) Double Click on the arrow located below the label “Text effects” and open “Format text effect” box

6) Select “text out line” and reduce the “Transparency “as you want and close

7) Rotate the WordArt as you want

It is not that much appropriate because BOQ is with 200 pages. It’s lot of time consuming method.

Then I try to find a solution from internet. Google give me a good solution. It’s the PDF water mark creator. It is a software (Freeware) for insert a water mark in to PDF documents. I add the water mark to whole document in a one step.
