Why are my watermark images printing badly?

I am trying to print out word documents containing text. The pages also have a watermark image on them (of different things relating to the text subject). When i print the pages, the watermark image is bad quality....very pixalated. Why is this? The images are from good quality pictures stored on my harddrive that i have re-sized to fit the page. Is this the root of the problem? Any info would be welcomed as the document is a collection of poetry written by my gran that I'm trying to get printed out before she shuffles off this mortal coil....at this rate it's a race against time :)

    Images used in printing should be at a high resolution. At least 600 DPI. Best to use a vector format (.svg) and set to a high res. Then resizing will not distort or pixelate.
