page-label is a job attribute:
	-o page-label="some weird text"
on the command line. The default implementation simply renders this "sime weird text"
(without the quotes) surrounded by a rectangular box at both tht top and the bottom of
each page.

There is an alternate implementation - see the link to "alternate pstops filter" on the
CUPS homepage - which requires some skills in PostScript programming but allows to 
do things like watermarks, thumb tabs, etc.
