Recently, Google introduced a tool that allows users to place a water mark in your documents through the editing service of docs. Despite not yet being released to all users, the company guarantees that the new option is being introduced gradually.

Still, you can check if the tool is already available in your account. To help you do that, we’ve prepared a very simple tutorial on how to insert your faded logo at the bottom of a page in Google Docs.

Usually inserted in the middle of a creation and with an opacity effect, the watermark serves to protect the creation of an artwork, photo or document. In this way, in addition to keeping the creators’ copyrights, the brand aims to guarantee the veracity of the file.

Follow the steps below to put a watermark on a document in Docs:

Ready! Your watermark has been applied. It is worth noting that the inserted tag will be replicated on the other sheets of the document, so you don’t have to keep placing it on each page individually. Also, when you download this document and open it in Word for example, the watermark will still remain on the pages.
