I want to pretty much do a mail merge but with pdf documents.  I was planning on making a template, hopefully opening it programmatically, then changing the name, address, city and state before printing.  Does anyone know how to open a pdf, and change some words before printing?  The reson I am not using word or anything like that is because there are photoshop images.

I am open to other things other than pdf too.  Let me know the best method, I can probably figure it out.

I was thinking in .net?

You could always use crystal reports to create the PDF document with the different names and addresses

Our Dev teams are like yours. They’re continually cranking out code for new features/bugs fixes, testing, deploying, testing some more, responding to production monitoring events and more. It’s complex. So, we thought you’d like to see what’s working for us.

The other thing is that you can use Crystal Reports and then you can convert them to PDF's
