There is a free and easy to use PDF class to create PDF documents. It's called FPDF. In combination with FPDI ,it is even possible to edit PDF documents. The following code shows how to use FPDF and FPDI to fill an existing gift coupon with the user data.

$pdf = new FPDI();


// import page 1
$tplIdx = $this->pdf->importPage(1);
//use the imported page and place it at point 0,0; calculate width and height
//automaticallay and ajust the page size to the size of the imported page
$this->pdf->useTemplate($tplIdx, 0, 0, 0, 0, true);

// now write some text above the imported page
$this->pdf->SetFont('Arial', '', '13');
//set position in pdf document
$this->pdf->SetXY(20, 20);
//first parameter defines the line height
$this->pdf->Write(0, 'gift code');
//force the browser to download the output
$this->pdf->Output('gift_coupon_generated.pdf', 'D');

I'm looking into a good versatile PDF generator class/library to use with PHP 5? --- Preferably one which is maintained somewhat recently...

Mostly needed for basic pages, but I also have some longer reports (more than one 8.5" x 11" page) and it would be nice if the pdf was able to split it up without losing part of the font when crossing page boundaries etc...
