    Hi Nixor,

    Unfortunately it is not possible to prevent users to stop printing the form.
    Browsers has a built in option to print whatever page is displayed other
    means of printing can also be used such as print screen key.

    You can add a watermark to the form by changing the background image.
    There are several ways tha this can be done. Please visit the following
    threads for the details and instructions:

    http://www.jotform.com/answers/20289-Can-I-use-a-jpg-for-the-form-background

    You may also use the following Custom Inject CSS code to add the background:

    Go to Setup & Embed > Preferences > Form Styles > Inject Custom CSS

    .form-all{
    background-image:url("http://url.to/image/here.jpg");
    background-repeat:no-repeat;
    }

    .form-line { background: none; }

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
