Dynamically adding text to a PDF

We're looking for a service or tool that will let employees create their own business card and have a press-ready PDF sent to our print shop.

I know this falls under the "web to print" industry, but I haven't found any workable services yet. Thanks!See More

So, the "powers that be" here are looking into various catalog systems...for next year.In the meantime, we're now working on our (hopefully last) old-school InDesign/PDF catalog, and I got to thinking...maybe it would be a good thing to do some sort of web-based static page (to keep it simple, for now) catalog this time around, to make the transition next year to whatever catalog system the "powers that be" decide upon an easier one.We have a Wordpress instance and then we have our regular…See More
