Yes, but not using the Add Watermark function. To do it create a text field (let's call it "PrintDate") at the location where you want this text to appear on the printed copy and set its visibility to "Hidden, but printable" (under Properties - General). Then go to Tools - JavaScript - Set Document Actions and under Document Will Print enter the following code:

 

this.getField("PrintDate").value = util.printd("mm/dd/yyyy", new Date());

 

Save the file and you're done!
