Did you read any further in the documentation than that first page? Look for something like \SetWatermarkText.

Also, if you installed TeX Live 2012 via the MacTeX installer there is no need to install the draftwatermark package since it's already part of TeX Live. You can look at the documentation by running

texdoc draftwatermark

in Terminal. In TeXShop you can use Help->Show Help for Package… (Opt-Cmd-I) and enter draftwatermark for the package name.

Good Luck,
