When we try to print invoice with multiple pages the rest of the pages will have the table header and the first row from that page being printed on top of each other. 

we are using Odoo V8 and I tried edit the report_invoice_layouted and the property of the paper used but nothing seems to fix the header.

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<data inherit_id="account.report_invoice_document">
    <xpath expr="//table/tbody[@class='invoice_tbody']" position="replace">
        <t t-foreach="o.sale_layout_lines(invoice_id=o.id)" t-as="p">
            <!-- Name of the category -->
            <t t-call="sale_layout.category_template"/>

            <!-- Lines associated -->
            <t t-foreach="p['lines']" t-as="l">
                    <td><span t-field="l.name"/></td>
                    <td><span t-field="l.quantity"/></td>
                    <td class="text-right">
                        <span t-field="l.price_unit"/>
                    <td class="text-right">
                        <span t-field="l.price_subtotal" t-field-options="{&quot;widget&quot;: &quot;monetary&quot;, &quot;display_currency&quot;: &quot;o.currency_id&quot;}"/>

            <!-- Subtotal -->
            <t t-call="sale_layout.subtotal_template"/>

            <!-- Separator -->
            <t t-call="sale_layout.separator_template"/>

            <!-- Pagebreak -->
            <t t-if="'pagebreak' in p['category'] and p['category'].pagebreak is True">
                <t t-if="p_index &lt; p_size - 1">
                            <p style="page-break-before:always;"> </p>
                            <table class="table table-condensed">
                            <th groups="product.group_uom">Unit of measure</th>
                            <th class="text-right">Unit Price</th>
                            <th class="text-right">Amount</th>

Answering my own Question.

The issue is because of wkhtmltopdf.exe. you must use version 


more details www.odoo.com/forum/help-1/question/invoice-layout-issues-74445


I have the same problem in Ubuntu 16.04.

If I upgrade the version of wkhtmltopdf, the header, the footer and the css styles disappear

Note: I post this as an answer because the www.odoo.com server gives me a Bad Request Error if I try to post as a comment
