# Alternatives to watermark

Are there any alternatives to watermark ie something that looks nice overlayed on top of text but with something like a stamp or a seal for instance ?

• background package, for example. A watermark isn't overlaid, actually – user31729 Jun 25 '16 at 17:44
• but with background, you have to insert a picture etc - I want to have something that one can use as simple as the watermark – Just_Newbie Jun 25 '16 at 17:45
• No, you can put anything into the background -- the contents=... option can contain anything, basically! – user31729 Jun 25 '16 at 17:47
• ok - see what you mean ie like this [tex.stackexchange.com/questions/244091/…. do you happen to have any other nice example with something more artistic ? – Just_Newbie Jun 25 '16 at 17:49
• Well, 'draft' isn't artistic really :D See my answer here (and decide whether it's artistic at all ;-)) tex.stackexchange.com/questions/296183/grid-a-single-page – user31729 Jun 25 '16 at 17:52

Since background is a TikZ package already, anything possible with TikZ is also possible for background

Here's just an example

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{background}
