I would recommend that you consider a server-based solution, where
the user can pick the form(s) they want to print. Then on the server, the
data is merged into the forms, all the forms are combined into a single
PDF, and that one PDF is then returned to the user's browser.

Some possible products that can help would be FDFMerge and
AppendPDF from Appligent (http://www.appligent.com).
