Precision multi-page printing

I am at a point where I will need to print checks in an application.

I guess the best way to describe this is that I am using pre-printed
checks and that I want to hit the prescribed areas with my text output.

Should I be doing something like PDF output like pdf-writer or other or
can I possibly do this with html and css?

My output will be check runs of many checks with 1 page per check.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Thanks

Craig

You will probably want to generate a PDF file. Prawn is very easy to
use for PDF generation; try that first. If Prawn won’t do what you
want, perhaps Prince (expensive) or one of its free competitors (Flying
Saucer, wkhtmltopdf) is worth a try.

My output will be check runs of many checks with 1 page per check.

Any suggestions will be appreciated.

I just wanted to say thanks again Marnen, prawn was perfect and was
simple enough to use, even in it’s still immature state. I also needed
an old plugin called numbersToWords for the checks but that seems to
work fine in 2.3.2 so I am good and now all I have left is to write the
code to post the changes to the legacy db (AP and GL).

I am rocking - thanks

Craig
