If you PDF is intended to be a printed document with a cover or title page, you may not want to start the Watermarks on the first page.
Use the start/stop to control to select the page that you want your Watermarks to start or stop printing on.

If you just want to turn them off for this printed document, you can uncheck "Print Watermarks" without losing your settings.

The Watermark is printed in the middle of the page. You can use your own custom graphic, but you may need to lighten it up with a graphic editor to keep it from dominating the page.

Note: Watermarks may not show up on web pages and some other documents because the white background may be placed on top and obscure the watermark making it invisible.
