Hi, I'm working on creating a letterhead for a client of mine. The letterhead was designed in Adobe Indesign, exported as a PDF and I have then used that pdf as a non-washed out watermark in Word (I'm on Mac).

 

However, my client is saying that the watermark image is not appearing when they open the word document, and they are prompted with a link issue, see attached screenshot.

 

So my question is; is there a way to embed the pdf watermark into the word document to prevent linking issues? Or is there a better way for me to create the letterhead?

 

Thanks

Matt
