# How to suppress page number on cover page? [duplicate]

Possible Duplicate:
removing page number for title page

I'm using the following code to create my front cover:

\documentclass[twoside,11pt,titlepage]{article}
\usepackage[paperwidth=5in,paperheight=7in]{geometry}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[absolute]{textpos}
\begin{document}
\begin{textblock*}{400mm}(0mm,0mm)
\includegraphics[width=\paperwidth]{front.jpg}
\end{textblock*}
\end{document}


But I'm getting a page number '1' at the bottom of the front cover image. How can I suppress that?

Add \thispagestyle{empty} just before your textblock. This removes both header and footer (containing your page number).
