not exactly, I don't want to put it up on a website. I want to print it out and when I try to do a print preview, the background disappears. Also, I want to use my own picture for the border? So how can I go about doing that and the background?

Check if adding it as a watermark works, you should be able to adjust the brightness before adding it to suit the text etc

The watermark commands are available only in normal, print layout, and outline views.

On the Format menu, point to Background, and then click Printed Watermark.
Do one of the following:
To insert a picture as a watermark (watermark: Any graphic or text, such as "Confidential," that when printed appears either on top of or behind existing document text.), click Picture Watermark, and then click Select Picture. Select the picture you want, and then click Insert.

To insert a text watermark, click Text Watermark, and then select or enter the text that you want.

Select any additional options that you want, and then click Apply.
To view a watermark as it will appear on the printed page, use print layout view (print layout view: A view of a document or other object as it will appear when you print it. For example, items such as headers, footnotes, columns, and text boxes appear in their actual positions.).

Open a new Word document, click insert, picture, from file

Double click the picture, click layout, click behind text, click OK

Click the picture and it gives you circles around it, hover the cursor ove the edge until it changes to a two way arrow, press and hold the left butoon to drag to size

Save the file

When you use it for a documant, use save as to keep the original for re-use
