Due to variations of the way printers work, per this technet discussion, a MS moderator states that they cannot control watermarks from Windows.

"I would like to explain that the mechanism used to implement so-called watermarks depends on  the particular printer -- some printers can implement watermarks  within their print configuration menus -- and on the particular  document format.  Postscript files, for instance, can have a  simple and very short Postscript file concatenated onto the front  of the actual Postscript print file -- the file to be printed --  either directly by the user or within the setup modules for a  Postscript print queue.  Other document formats may or may not  provide a mechanism for watermarks, and details are entirely  application- and print-file-specific.

So, we cannot control watermarks on Windows side. Please try to contact the printer manufacturer to get the instruction. Thank you for your understanding."
