The browser's 'print' function cannot be manipulated with code. As far as I know, anyway

It takes what you see, and prints it over as many pages as you need. If you're producing something for the purpose of printing it, you're far better off doing it in some other publishing program

If you absolutely need to have your name on each page, try a small repeating background with your address written sideways on it, to repeat approximately every half A4 page. This will make sure they see it, without resorting to heavy duty 'LOOK AT ME' scripts

You <b><i>can</i></b> manipulate the printed page with code, by feeding it a completely different stylesheet like they do at:

(try a print preview of their front page. Byebye "printable versions".

You <i>should</i> be able to set a page header on every page with the css print media selector, but I cannot find the rules that you need - I'm sure I saw them before. :?
