# Watermark via package 'draftwatermark' is not showing on page

I'm trying to add a watermark to my paper, simply by adding a

 \usepackage{draftwatermark}


But the watermark doesn't appear to be showing up?

On closer inspection, it's there, but offset from the page, so it only just shows in one corner.

Any ideas? I'm using a journal specific style class (MNRAS / mn2e.cls).

A MWE:

\documentclass{mn2e}
\usepackage{draftcopy}
\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}

\lipsum[1-11]

\end{document}

Can you provide us with a minimal working example, please? –  Vahid Damanafshan Sep 19 '12 at 18:00
I took the liberty of adding a MWE (and an image of the resulting document) illustrating the problem mentioned; I hope it's OK. –  Gonzalo Medina Sep 20 '12 at 3:07

Figured it out eventually. According to the documentation, draftwatermark

also assumes that \paperwidth and \paperheight are set correctly.

I suspected the journal class file might be doing something weird. Turns out you can enforce the standard page size by including

\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}


after you set up the document with mn2e.

Here's a fixed MWE, with some draftwatermark options for good measure:

\documentclass{mn2e}

\usepackage[a4paper]{geometry}
\usepackage{draftwatermark}
\SetWatermarkScale{5}
\SetWatermarkLightness{0.9}

\usepackage{lipsum}

\begin{document}
\lipsum[1-11]
\end{document}
