That is a watermark.

Do you use Word 2000? Try Tools | options | print and maybe uncheck "hidden text"

Or just close out of Office and do a file | find normal.dot and rename to normal.old

Now open word and try.

Cool Hello, Colin!
Also check this:

File-->Print
Click the Properties of the printer.
Check each Tab (page) of the dialog box for "watermark".

Some printers have the option to print a watermark. You can turn the option off. (You will not be able to see the watermark on the document because it is "in the printer".)

For others who stumbled on this thread looking for additional solutions, you might also want to check to see if a drawing object has been inserted in the middle of the page as part of the header/footer formatting. To check, click View > Header and Footer in Word. See if the watermark image is visible in the middle of the page. If so, see if you can select it by clicking on it. The watermark will likely turn out to be an image created with Word Art. If you can select it by clicking on it, press the Delete key to rid yourself of it. Click the Close button on the Header/Footer toolbar to return to your previous document view. Done.

Hope this helps someone.
