Here is the script that I use to impose my monthly theatre flyer using
Postscript output from Scribus.  This creates a double-sided 8.5x11 flyer
printed two-up on 11x17 paper, ripped with a 110 linescreen and ready to put on
plates for the press.

You should be able to easily adapt it to suit your needs.

psnup -pledger -Pletter -nup 2 flyer.ps imposed.ps
