Watermark not printing

OK I think I'm going crazy. I have a collection of images I want to print. I created a generic text watermark that says "Father's Day 2018". In the LR print module, I click the button to enable Watermarking.... and I select the text watermark I created.

It displays on the screen perfectly as I want to see it on paper... yet when I print, all I get is the actual image, not the text watermark. What am I doing wrong!?

I've changing the fonts a few times and it seems to make no difference.

Figured it out... Rookie mistake. I was "cropping" in the print module by moving the image around to fit an 8x10 sheet... I was sliding the image DOWN. Turns out the water mark was there, just off the bottom of the page.. It displayed on the monitor just fine, but the actual print had it off the page..

I fixed it by creating a virtual copy of the image... Cropping it to 8x10.... loading it in the print module and activating watermarking. Worked like a charm.
