I suppose you have done typesetting and run latex. There is a utility 
called mpage which comes with linux distro ( at least redhat ) which can 
format ps output into another ps file with large number of options. One ( 
default ) option is to have two ( typeset ) pages per page in the output. 
The output of mpage is in postscript format so you can print, view or do 
anything you want. 

Hope this helps.
