Building vs buying a document generation solution

You should build your own PDF generator if

  • Document generation is a core part of your product.
  • You must fill up your developers hours.

You should buy the PDF Generator API if

  • You want to focus on building your project’s unique part, not document generation.
  • You don’t have time and want to get the PDF thing off your table.
  • You want to ensure that your PDF generator is always up to date and working seamlessly.

“Developing a PDF creator in-house wouldn’t make any sense when there are well-working solutions such as PDF Generator API.”

    Think about it: if you are creating software that focuses on accounting then you want to focus on accounting. You shouldn't waste time with coding fancy forms that you can easily drag-drop using PDF Generator API.

    There are no upfront setup fees to the tens of thousands, even before getting started, as you would with some other big players on the market. You have been doing this for a long time, and I think by now, your product is a lot more solid and reliable than anything else in the market.

    PDF Generator API allows our customers to quickly design and print multiple document template types for Invoice PDFs, Picking/Packing Slips, Drop Notes, Address labels and pretty much any other document. Building a similar functionality in-house would have cost a lot of money in terms of resources.

Key features

Users can edit and manage document templates

We provide a workspace logic that allows creating a separate workspace for each of your users where they can store and manage document templates. A new workspace is automatically created whenever you make API requests with a new workspace identifier.

Embeddable template editor

You can embed the document template editor into your application to allow users to modify their PDF templates. In addition, it is possible to display the editor in a new window/tab or an iframe.

Enjoy Powerful Expression language

You can write mathematical and logical expressions to manipulate and customize values displayed in components. For example, use ternary, arithmetic, bitwise, and comparison operators and functions to sum, join, and iterate arrays.

Share document templates with your users

You can set up default document templates that your users can use as base templates. Then, a new copy is saved to their workspace whenever they modify a default PDF template.

A wide range of intelligent components

You can use different components like Text, Table, and Barcode and define the formatting for number and date values. It is possible to group, filter, and sort lists and tables without modifying the data set on the software application side.

Merge PDF template and data via API

Powerful Web API to merge templates with data from your software. Just send the template identifier and JSON data to generate PDF.

We are committed to keeping your data safe and following the best practices to achieve this goal. We do not save the data used for document generation. In addition, we enable you to choose the location where your data is processed.

Leverage our scalable HTML to PDF conversion functionality to focus all your development time on your core functionality. Building an html to pdf converter is easy, but why waste time? Several solutions are available on the market, but not all of them can generate pdf documents at scale.

We understand that sometimes you cannot use a third party for security and privacy reasons. We provide an on-premises deployment for these occasions so you can have complete control over security, privacy, and deployment.

We provide a separate deployment that only serves your application without any monthly limits (fair usage), and you can use your sub-domain and custom editor theme. The service can be deployed either in our US or Europe infrastructure.
