I'm placing a background in my report document, using the LaTeX wallpaper package. However, I am not able to easily place a document on all pages except for one (the title page). I am using \ULCornerWallPaper{1}{background.pdf} in my preamble to set the background, but if I use \ClearWallPaper, which was the only related command I found in the documentation, then the background simply disappears on all pages.

How can I make the background appear in the whole document, except for on a specific page (without having to add it manually to all pages)?

You can use \ULCornerWallPaper{1}{background.pdf} in the document itself, not in the preamble:

Putting it on a specific page (e.g. after \newpage or \end{titlepage} or whatever) will make the background appear on all pages starting from that page.

(Similarly, putting \ClearWallPaper on some page will remove the background from all pages starting with that one.)


Try the xwatermark package. You can specify the pages that should receive the watermark. Use the key
