    I haven't had to do this for ages so I'm not sure how the market's changed, but a few years ago I used Apache FOP to do some PDF creation http://xmlgraphics.apache.org/fop/

    That was for .NET and at the time there were mostly only commercial products, however if you're doing PHP, feel free to peruse the manual and happen upon the PDF Functions section :p
