If the file only has one page you can't do it with the free Reader. If it has multiple pages you can do it by using the Multiple option in the Print dialog and enter the page number twice under the "Pages to Print" field.

For example, if you want to print the first page twice, one on top of another, use these options:

Thanks for the reply, but this doesn't answer the problem I have.

I have a pdf file, but I am not the author.  This file has several introductory pages that do not have page numbers.  Following is the main body of the document, about 14 pages long.

I want to print one copy of page 1 of the main document (which has page numbers).

If I enter 1 into the range block in the print dialog, I get all the page 1s in the document - two of them.

   One page 1 is the first physical page of the pdf file

   The other page 1 is the first page of the main body of the pdf (which has page numbers)

If I enter, say 10, into the print dialog range, I don't get page 10 of the main doc.  I get some other page.

 

How do I print exactly the page I want and no other?  Only 1 copy is desired.  I used to have an older copy of Acrobat Reader that allowed me to print what I want, but the automatic updates have replaced what worked with a newer version that might have deleted that feature.    HELP!

I used to use Adobe in the same way: to print 2 copies of single page on the same page. Now it's impossible.

The free version of Foxit Reader has this function, but only with the Windows implementation; unfortunate as I'm migrating to Linux. In operation it looks very similar to Try67's screenshot; you have to be patient as the response is slow.

Replicating a page, for example in Scribus, is easy but not a solution for me because I want the same pdf forms input to show on each copy.

I know this is an old question, but I bet alot of people end up here still, via google. Like I did 😃 

My stupid, unnecessary complicated solution was this:
- Copy the file, so I have two identical copies in the folder. 
- Use PDF candy online to merge the two files. Now I have one file with two identical pages.

- Print two pages at one page like a normal person would in the first place.

There's an even easier way 
you just print a first the desired number of copies (2 or 4 or 9 or 16) to pdf
then yous use use the multiple option that will now give you the output you want

Interesting! How do you print multiple pages to pdf? I have a one page document, print to pdf, put 4 copies, but the result is one page.

You should do it in two steps
First you print 4 copies full page (without the multiple option) to pdf.
Then you open the new document (which now has 4 pages) and print it with the multiple option mentioned above 

That should give you 1 page with four copies of the same original page.

Thanks for your help.  This worked perfectly for me.  Until now I copied my work onto two pages in word each time then saved as a pdf.

I got this to work in mid-2020.  Here's how:  1- open the one-page .pdf in a browser; I used MS-Edge. 2- right-click on the .pdf and choose print.  3- Select Microsoft Print to PDF as your printer and specify 2 copies.  4- specify the page range 1,1. 5- hit the print button.  6- Save the resulting .pdf as a new file.  When I went through these steps, I now had a 2-page .pdf with two identical pages.    Good luck.

Convert your pdf single page to jpg (img) file, crop as reqd. And paste this image file in word file. Adjust size and margin and copy paste as much as reqd. In one page. Save this as pdf. Then print with high print quality.
