"If you like pdftk, then you’ll appreciate the other 25 programs and scripts I created for my book, PDF Hacks." –Sid
For ten years, power users have relied on PDFtk for server-side processing of PDF documents. Our command-line PDFtk has been — and always will be — free (as in freedom) software.
Today we also offer a convenient graphical application: PDFtk Pro. Your purchase of PDFtk Pro will help fund the continued development of our GPL PDFtk.
Thank you for your support!
