Is is possible to use \usepackage{draftwatermark} with beamer? I tried it, and the watermark does not show on the slides:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{draftwatermark}

\author{Test}
\title{Sample document for the draftwatermark package}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\begin{frame}{Test}
test frame
\end{frame}

\end{document}

I'm curious why would you show slides with a draft watermark. –  lhf Jul 24 '13 at 11:52
    
"UNOFFICIAL", actually. I needed to share some slides with some preliminary results, but I needed to make it clear that they were not officially endorsed. –  xvtk Jul 24 '13 at 20:52

You should make the canvas transparent:

\documentclass{beamer}
\usepackage{draftwatermark}
\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=}%transparent canvas
\author{Test}
\title{Sample document for the draftwatermark package}

\begin{document}

\maketitle

\begin{frame}{Test}
test frame
\end{frame}

\end{document}
