I'd like to realise page numbers like "Type 1 Page 1" and "Type 1 Page 2" and so on in my document. How can I achieve this?

Manupulate page numbers (and header-footer in general) with fancyhdr.

\usepackage{lipsum} % just to get some text
%\lhead{} % I have added all possibilities to add
%\chead{} %  text to header and footer but commented them out
%\rhead{} %   uncomment and try
\cfoot{Type 1 Page \thepage}


See the fancyhdr documentation for details

Thanks so much. I worked well but when I add \maketitle into my document, the page numbering goes back to 1, 2, 3, ... Can you help me out please! – Fizzle Jan 17 '13 at 22:38
@Fizzle, the problem of different layout on the first page is a feature of fancyhdr. The purpose is t okeep the titlepage clean. – Peter Jansson Jan 17 '13 at 22:55

If you are using \documentclass{article} at the head of your file this should happen automatically, otherwise you can use \setcounter{page}{number} to manually begin adding numbers where if you put it on the first page you will want to change {number} to {1}.
