How can I make a draft watermark like the one in this document: https://theory.cs.princeton.edu/complexity/book.pdf

  • Perhaps a fancy footer might work?

You can experiment with the hspace for horizontal spacing -- and scalebox for magnification--color gray can be changed to red etc--

enter image description here

\documentclass{scrartcl}% http://ctan.org/pkg/koma-script
\usepackage{lipsum}% http://ctan.org/pkg/lipsum
\usepackage{url}% http://ctan.org/pkg/url
\usepackage{eso-pic}% http://ctan.org/pkg/eso-pic

\AddToShipoutPictureBG{% Add picture to background of every page
                    Draft [Revision 269] 30-06-2012 at 07:41:41
                    \copyright\ Me, Myself and I \\
            \color[gray]{.93}\normalfont DRAFT}}}
